The latest NBA 2K19 trailer shows more of the individual journey you can take in the game. The trailer titled “The Way Back” tells the story of a player trying to succeed overseas in order to make his way back to the United States in order to play in the NBA. Among those helping him are a few celebrities that have assumed roles in the game in order to deliver a more fleshed out experience.
It’s surprising to see the star power involved in the latest NBA 2K title. Names like Anthony Mackie (Avengers) Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), Aldis Hodge (Straight out of Compton), and Michael Rapaport (Atypical) are just some of the names that will make appearances in the game. They are also shown in the trailer below. This also follows the announcement that rapper, Travis Scott, was going to be curating the soundtrack.
If you plan on downloading the Prelude to the game, you’ll have the chance to play the first chapter of “The Way Back” for free. The download will be available on August 31, 2018.
NBA 2K19 releases on September 11, 2018. This is also the 20th anniversary for the franchise. It is available to pre-order on PC via Steam.
