NBA 2K24 expands their inclusion of WNBA more than ever

Posted on August 23, 2023

NBA 2K24 is not far away, and a series of Courtside Reports (deep dives) are giving us plenty for basketball fans to be excited for, including how its inclusion of the WNBA is expanding more than ever before.

There will be new ways for players to control how their WNBA unfolds, including competing in casual 3v3 street games, chase new prizes and more.

“Elevating The W in NBA 2K is always an exciting part of our work every year,” said Felicia Steenhouse, Senior Producer at Visual Concepts. “We look forward to seeing how players choose to unfold their career in The W while pursuing greatness on the court.”

According to the press release, the W will also add a variety of new features for the women’s game, including:

  • Choose Your Path: Players can choose their path towards WNBA stardom with two options: to enter the league as a college hoops sensation or an up-and-coming player with valuable international experience. It’s up to the player to decide how their WNBA career unfolds;
  • In Pursuit of Greatness: An all-new feature – “In Pursuit of Greatness” – will be added to The W this year, where players can be pitted against some of the WNBA’s most gifted stars to see how they compare to their rival;
  • Pick-Up Games: Instead of last year’s Contact Challenges, this year, players can earn exciting badge perks by competing against a veteran from their own team, a star player they’re in a position battle with, and historic legends;
  • The W Rewards: New rewards and content will be available in The W and The W Online, earned by winning games and completing challenges to unlock updated 2K Breakthrough Skins, MyTEAM Jersey Cards, and player-enhancing MyTEAM Shoe Cards and more exciting rewards.
