Wondering how to unlock the Rebirth feature in NBA 2K23? We've got you covered.

Initially making its series debut in NBA 2K19, the Rebirth system is back in both the Current and Next Gen versions of NBA 2K23 MyCAREER. For those looking to get a head start on creating the build they truly want, here's a breakdown of how to unlock Rebirth save files in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER on Current Gen and Next Gen.

How to Unlock Rebirth in NBA 2K23: Current and Next Gen

To unlock the ability to use Rebirth save files, players on both Current and Next Gen must complete the "Rebirth" quest.

For those on Current Gen, the process is much simpler. Once you hop into the G.O.A.T. Boat for the first time, players will receive a message from Ronnie2K about hitting 90 overall.

At this point, players will be given the Rebirth quest, in which all they need to is hit 90 OVR to unlock the feature.

For those on Next Gen, the process is a bit stretched out, but does come with some nice rewards along the way.

After finishing the NBA Summer League game, players will receive a bunch of intro quests, including the Rebirth one.

The Rebirth quest on Next Gen still requires players to speak with Ronnie2K, but on four separate occasions.

To get the quest started, feel free to use the map shared on Reddit by u/GentleGrizzly12.

Essentially, the only thing players need to do is find and talk to Ronnie at each of the four locations in the City. Each time players go through a cutscene with the community manager, they'll receive the next step in the quest, which is to simply meet the OVR milestones.

  1. Reach 65 OVR: Unlocks Ronnie2K & Sophie T-Shirt
  2. Reach 75 OVR: Unlocks Custom Spawn Locations
  3. Reach 88 OVR: Unlocks the ability to go Shirtless
  4. Reach 90 OVR: Unlocks Rebirth

What is Rebirth in NBA 2K23?

Rebirth saves, which are unlimited, will start players off with all previously earned gameplay-related quest prizes carried over, up to 25 Badge points already earned and the opportunity to upgrade to a 90 OVR.

Keep in mind that although Rebirth builds technically do have a head start in Badges and Attribute upgrade progress, players will still have to spend upwards of 200,000 VC to actually get their builds maxed out.
