NBA 2K23 releases on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on September 9, so we're only about two months away from returning to the court. Preorders are available now, and there are a bunch of preorder bonuses up for grabs that make it worthwhile to reserve your copy. Here’s a closer look at all (five) editions available and where you can sign up for a preorder. Only a few storefronts are currently listing NBA 2K23, so be sure to check back in the coming weeks if you don’t see your retailer of choice listed below. Heads up: If you watch a lot of NBA games, you'll definitely want to consider the $150 Championship Edition. It comes with a 12-month subscription to NBA League Pass, which is an awesome $15/month subscription that lets you watch every game across the entire league.
NBA 2K23 Preorder Bonuses
Regardless of which version of NBA 2K23 you reserve, you’ll benefit from the following preorder bonuses.
5,000 Virtual Currency
5,000 MyTEAM Points
10 MyTEAM Promo Packs (delivered one a week)
A Boost for each MyCAREER Skill type
A Boost for each Gatorade Boost type
Devin Booker MyPLAYER Jersey
95 Rated Devin Booker MyTEAM Free Agent Card
There don't seem to be any retailer-exclusive bonuses as the moment (aside from the WNBA version sold exclusively at GameStop), although that could change as we get closer to NBA 2K23's launch on September 9.
The standard edition, featuring Devin Booker on the cover, comes with the above preorder bonuses and the base game. Last-gen versions are available for $60, while new-gen versions are listed for $70. Digital versions are currently available on PSN and the Xbox Store, although they'll eventually be listed on Steam and the Switch eShop.
The WNBA edition is similar to the standard edition, although it comes with the following digital content:
1 Sue Bird Jersey in The W and in MyCAREER
1 Diana Taurasi Jersey in The W and in MyCAREER
It also features different cover athletes, with Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi stepping into the spotlight. This version is exclusive to GameStop and is available to preorder now at the same price points as the standard edition with Devin Booker on the cover.
It’s not cheap, but at least the NBA 2K23 Championship edition comes with a lot of content back up its $150 price tag. The main draw is the 12-month NBA League Pass subscription, which gives you access to live games throughout the year. Considering that NBA League Pass costs $15 per month, the Championship Edition is by far the best value if you're a big NBA fan.
12 Month NBA League Pass Subscription
100K Virtual Currency
10% XP Boost on MyTEAM Season Progression
10K MyTEAM Points
10 MyTEAM Tokens
23 MyTEAM Promo Packs
Sapphire Devin Booker and Ruby Michael Jordan MyTEAM Cards
We're still waiting to get a first look at NBA 2K23. Every new installment in the series usually comes with new gameplay features and improvements as well as updated visuals, but beyond that nothing is really known about the upcoming title. Stay tuned for more details.
