NBA 2K games always see to it that there is a special feel to the music that is featured in the video game, as this is the identity that makes the entire NBA 2K franchise distinctive in a lot of ways. LeBron James, Pharrell Williams and Jay-Z are some of the famous celebrities that are responsible for curating past soundtracks.
DJ Premier, DJ Mustard and DJ Khaled are the ones that took part in creating the soundtrack for the NBA 2K16. It features a mix of different themes and styles to its musical soundtracks, making the game more alive and thought provoking.
The 2K experience keeps up with its traditions, as NBA 2K17 will still be featuring famous musical celebrities to add to the diversity and glamour of the upcoming game. Rock band Imagine Dragons, Juno Award winning producer Grimes and Noah "40" Shebib, Drake's right-hand person, are all featured in NBA 2K17's soundtracks.
What makes the NBA 2K franchise more exciting is the incorporation of playable national teams just like Team USA and Team Australia who competed in the 2016 Rio Olympics. Charles Barkley is also in the game, as the 1992 Dream Team is also a playable team in NBA 2K17.
The release of NBA 2K17 will be on September 20, and will be made available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. As of now, NBA 2K17 can be pre-ordered.
For players who pre-ordered the game, they will be given an incentive bonus to play 4 days earlier on September 16th. This has been the tradition of the previous NBA 2K games to market the pre-orders even more.
