As promised, details about the "G.O.A.T. Boat" and MyCAREER for NBA 2K23 on current gen were finally revealed Friday.
From The G.O.A.T. Boat’s three-deck layout, to new Seasons, Environment Changes and more, here's a breakdown of everything you need to know about the NBA 2K23 current-gen MyCAREER reveal.
NBA 2K23 Current-Gen MyCAREER Details Revealed
For those on PS4, Xbox One, PC or Nintendo Switch, the Cancha Del Mar has been replaced by The G.O.A.T. Boat as the Neighborhood in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER.
The G.O.A.T. Boat is said to be an "entirely new experience," equipped with a more accessible, three-deck layout that features more game modes and courts, broader lanes and hallways for smoother traversal and a more centralized Promenade:
Platinum Deck: Trips
- Six 3v3 Courts
- Four Elevators
- Two "Showers" (Server Refresh)
- Gatorade Training Facility
Platinum Deck: Deuces
- Six 2v2 Courts
- Three Elevators
- Two Showers
Platinum Deck: MOAT
- Two 5v5 Courts (One more than last year)
- Two Elevators
- Two Showers
- Entrance to Excursions
Silver Deck: Promenade
- Jordan Challenge
- The REC Lounge
- The Cages
- NBA Store, SWAG’s, Rowe’s Sporting Goods, Wheels, Doc’s, The Paint Tattoo, Partnered Stores
- The Galleon 1v1
- The Bridge 3v3
- Daily Pick’Em
- Daily Prize
- Two Elevators
The Game Room and the Promenade have been merged into a single level this year, which is said to make it easier than ever to visit some of the stores before heading to the other game modes on the Silver Deck.
In addition, players should notice the added "Showers," which allow you to quickly change servers. Elevators have also been updated to include fast travel between key points of interest, and can also be used to access off-shore events.
Aside from the layout, perhaps the biggest change with the G.O.A.T. Boat is the addition of "no-wait gameplay" to complement Got Next spots. Similar to The REC, when you go to join a game you’ll be automatically matched up with fellow players, cutting down on wait times.
The G.O.A.T. Boat is also set to pick up where the Cancha Del Mar left off, inviting players to experience one new excursion and one new on-deck event each Season. Throughout the year, The G.O.A.T. Boat will also receive cosmetic updates to match the vibe of each Season to keep things fresh.
Lastly, the The G.O.A.T. Boat will come with some tweaks to last year's Quest system.
To receive Quests in NBA 2K23, you must interact with NPCs as they won’t automatically be assigned to your Quest Journal.
Additionally, a new type of Quest, Rival Quests, will be added to allow players to compete 1v1 against the AI within an established storyline with authentic dialogue. These Quests will feature key NPCs you will interact with throughout the course of the game.
NBA 2K23 is set to release worldwide for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC (via Steam) on Sept. 9, 2022.
