2K has announced that NBA 2K18 will be getting a new mode called Neighborhoods, which will allow players to socialise with their fellow gamers.
NBA 2K18‘s Neighborhoods mode, essentially consists of a few city blocks which contain vendors, including barbers and tattoo artists, which will allow players to customise their own character. Of course, being an NBA game, there will also be basketball courts situated throughout the city block too. These will enable players to challenge each other to games. Not only will you be able to have some fun with friends while playing in this mode, but you will also be able to improve your character’s rating while partaking in certain activities.
