After several months of anticipation, NBA 2K17 will be out in the market in a few weeks. Now, 2K Sports have shared to the public the pre-order bonuses that the first buyers will be entitled to have. Three new card designs for the MyTEAM mode are also coming out with the bonuses.
The game development company also leaked official information about what to expect in the "Kobe Bryant Gold Edition". There are three new designs for the MyTEAM mode, which features famous NBA stars in the likes of Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and Paul George.
Kobe Bryant has overall stats of 99, together with Michael Jordan. However, the rising star, Paul George has a rating of 90. Kobe Bryant will be featured on the cover of the NBA 2K17 Legend Edition, while Paul George will be on the cover of the standard NBA 2K17 edition. This is a marketing strategy used by 2K Sports to get more fan pools from both Kobe Bryant and Paul George.
For fans that are pre-ordering the game, a bonus of a 1992 Team USA Dream Team will be included in the game package. Fans who pre-order the game will receive a special code that will unlock the Dream Team. The team features some of the best players from the 1990s.
There are also other reports that claim that the 2016 USA Basketball Men's National Team will also be featured in NBA 2K17. The players who will be in the featured and be part of the 2016 USA Basketball Men's National Team are: Kevin Durant, Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, DeAndre Jordan, Kyrie Irving, DeMarcus Cousins, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barns, and Draymond Green. This is to support the 'trend' of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio, another very good technique used by 2K Sports to market the game even more.
NBA 2K17 will be out in the market by September 2016, and available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
