2K has announced that fans who pre-order NBA 2K16 will be able to get their hands on the game several days in advance of its release.
The publisher today detailed what it's calling "Early Tip-off Weekend", allowing those who pre-order to pick up their copy on Friday, September 25. This is four days ahead of its normal September 29 street date, which everyone else will have to wait for.
"NBA 2K16 promises to be one of the most groundbreaking sports titles in video game history, combining exciting new features with uncanny realism," said Alfie Brody, vice president of marketing for NBA 2K. "We're always seeking new ways to excite and ignite our fans' tremendous passion for the franchise, and offering unmatched early access is just another way to bring them closer to the on-court action they crave."
There's a lot of PR speak in there, but the bottom line is you can get the game early, and they're happy to offer that to dedicated fans. We'll always caution pre-ordering any game, given the number of launch issues titles have suffered in recent years, but some dedicated fans of ay franchise will always go for it regardless. Here's what else you get for purchasing in advance:
- 10,000 Virtual Currency (VC)
- MyTEAM VIP Package:
- New-Gen & PC - 3 MyTEAM Emerald Packs each with a guaranteed Emerald player;
- Prior-Gen - MyTEAM Gold Booster Pack with Guaranteed Gold Player and 4 additional Gold items.
