Season 5 of NBA 2K22 has officially been revealed, giving players a full-fledged, in-depth preview of what's to come in the next six weeks starting this Friday.

The new theme for Season 5 is Power Within, inviting players to awaken a rare, legendary power that only a few possess. The anime-inspired journey features two-time champion Kevin Durant, 2019 first-round pick Rui Hachimura and, for the first time in 2K history, a college basketball star in Paolo Banchero. Anime culture will soon be coming to The City and Cancha Del Mar, where players can experience Japanese-inspired apparel, a futuristic hoverboard and a "powerful" Grand Prize. Season 5 also includes new music added to the soundtrack in partnership with UK-based label Ninja Tune and lots of new content and updates across MyCareer, MyTeam and The W modes.

The road to Level 40 starts once again, with all-new quests, rewards and environment updates (e.g. new murals and court floors) to experience along the way around the City and the Cancha Del Mar.

While Animation Packs, Seasonal apparel, Badge Points and a futuristic hoverboard will be collected as players level up, the ultimate reward for Season 5 is a mascot for your MyPlayer. Those on Next Gen will receive either a Wildcat, Viper, Knight or Beast Affiliation Skin mascot depending on which Affiliation they’re associated with, while those on current-gen players will have the option to select the mascot they prefer.


The headliner for MyTeam in Season 5 is the return of Dynamic Ratings cards, which fluctuate and receive regular updates for the remainder of the regular season depending on each players’ real-life performance. This is the final base set of NBA 2K22 MyTeam, featuring all 30 current NBA teams with over 400 new player cards.

Players can compete against the entire set in a new Dynamic Ratings Domination tier to earn players from each team. Jump in and pick up all 99 Stars in this new tier to unlock Galaxy Opal Paul Millsap.

Those who reach Level 40 will earn Dark Matter Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooters of all-time, from his early days as a Buck.

Lastly, to celebrate the NBA's 75th anniversary, Season 5 will also bring six MyTeam collections spanning six decades and an NBA 75 Domination tier:

  • 2010 - Present
  • 2000 - 2009
  • 1990 - 1999
  • 1980 - 1989
  • 1970 - 1979
  • 1960 - 1969

Beginning Tuesday, March 1, the 2000s and the 2010s will be the first collections completed, with the ‘80s/’90s and ‘60s/’70s to follow suit.
