Apart from the best-in-class gameplay, one thing that NBA 2K gets right is its top-notch soundtrack, and it’s about to get a new approach for NBA 2K22 to keep the experience fresh and dynamic.
NBA 2K22 has revealed that the in-game soundtrack will be integrated into its seasons, switching up tracks and playlists to promote growth and discovery of new artists and tracks through what they call “First Fridays”, a time when new songs will be added to the soundtrack every first Friday of a new season.
“Basketball and music are so intertwined and have become an integral part of our game,” said Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global Marketing for NBA 2K. “NBA 2K has become a global platform for music discovery and that continues with NBA 2K22. This year, we are creating a dynamic soundtrack, complete with early access to unreleased tracks, new artists, and opportunities for fans to become part of the experience and solidify their place in video game history.”
An initial lineup of artists was also revealed, including some big names like Travis Scott, Megan Thee Stallion, Migos, Saweetie, and much more.
NBA 2K22 will release on September 10 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch, and PC.
