Do you want to see yourself in the center of the NBA 2K22 action? 2K has you covered.

Character creation has rapidly become a crucial part of gaming in recent years. Those lengthy memes exist for a reason—this author can confirm. It's easy to spend hours in the customization screen measuring millimeters of pixels to get the perfect nose shape. After all, if you're going to stare at this face for the rest of the game, you likely want it to be as accurate as possible.

Especially if it's your face you're making.

NBA 2K22 Face Scan iOS App Explained

While it has yet to be released on the Apple App and Google Play stores, NBA 2K22 fans can search up the official My NBA 2K22 app in preparation to download it to their mobile device. Thanks to its webpage, we know a few of the features—including facial scanning. Using this app, fans will be able to "use face scan to personalize your MyPLAYER in NBA 2K22" on several gaming platforms.

We can assume this will be done by connecting the app to the appropriate platform account, whether that be Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, and so on. DBLTAP cannot confirm the precise process to input a player's face into NBA 2K22, but we can work off the process unveiled in years prior.

Here are the steps needed to use the Face Scan feature in the NBA 2K22 app:

  • Open the app and verify your MyPLAYER account connection. You wouldn't want to upload your face to the wrong place, right?
  • Select "Scan Your Face" from the app menu.
  • Pay attention to the on-screen prompts and execute them to the best of your ability. Doing so will enable the program to get the best likeness of your face.

Afterward, the scan information will be uploaded to the NBA 2K22 servers automatically. From there, players can select that appearance for their player avatar when they login to the game.

Players should be sure they complete their scan in a well-lit area and hold their device as steady as possible at eye level while turning.

We encourage those eager to take advantage of this feature to keep their eyes on official NBA 2K22 channels for updates regarding the app.
