In the midst of NBA 2K22 Season 3: Iced Out, 2K, and Visual Concepts are getting set to bring MyCareer players two separate Christmas events depending on what platform they are playing the game on.

For those looking to make the most out of the special holiday festivities, here's a breakdown of the Christmas events coming to NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Current and Next Gen.

NBA 2K22 MyCareer Christmas Events: Current and Next Gen

For those on NBA 2K22 Current Gen, Season 3 sees the Cancha Del Mar charting a course to frigid waters, placing players under the vivid and mesmerizing Northern Lights with the North Pole off in the distance. For 30 minutes, players will be able to look up to the starry night sky and see the spectacle, then hoop under one of the natural wonders of the world. As in previous Seasons, players will be able to experience new events on and off the ship via Excursions.

The Cancha Del Mar will also host a 12 Days of Xmas promotion leading up to the Dunk the Halls event. For nearly two weeks, players can visit the Tree of Giving located near the atrium and receive one gift per day selected from a variety of useful rewards. The Dunk the Halls event will encourage players to get in the giving spirit when participating in community games. When a player with a higher level teams up with a player of lesser level anywhere on the ship, the entire team will earn double XP.

This is great timing considering there will also be a new event debuting in Season 3 called Fire and Ice. During the new event, park games will speed up the rate you earn a takeover perk in-game to be ten times faster. At the start of the game, all players will have their takeovers activated, but with every point scored, the takeover will begin a timed cooldown. This will keep the competition level balanced and give less-experienced players the chance to get familiar with their takeover perk.

For those on NBA 2K22 Next Gen, players can head to middle of the city on Dec. 25 to find a lush, full Holiday tree laced with ornaments, twinkling strands of lights, and presents abound sitting at its base. There, players can claim their present, which has notoriously given hundreds of thousands of free VC to lucky players in past titles.

Aside from that, and the updated, festive look of the City, 2K hasn't said much else about what's coming to Next Gen other than that an "avalanche" of winter events will be coming as well.

For now, NBA 2K22 Next Gen players should be sure to check out the new City Slam single-player rooftop game mode.
