If you’ve managed to pre-order the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19, you would probably have your hands on the game already. For those who ordered the Standard Edition, you’ll be getting the game on September 11.
For those unaware, the NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition comes with 100,000 VCs (NBA 2K’s Virtual Currency), 50,000 MyTeam Points, 20 MyTEAM League Packs and 10 MyTEAM Heat Check Packs (both are delivered 1 per week), Sapphire LeBron James and Sapphire Giannis Antetokounmpo MyTEAM cards and other Lebron James themed items like murals, apparel and footwear.
The 100,000 VCs and 50,000 MyTeam points will be an advantage to MyCareer and MyTeam players as you’ll be getting a headstart to those gamers who’ll be grinding for VCs. Most players who got the 100,000 VCs end up with an 85 overall player, after applying all of them. To put things into perspective, If you were to grind for VCs through the game, it might actually take you 30-50 Career games (an estimate only) to get to 85.
With that being said, here’s 4 reasons why you should go get the Anniversary Edition or Standard edition.
Based from the recent Gameplay trailer released, we get to see the various improvements 2K made to the game. From signature player moves to the signature reactions of players. The gameplay brings us closer to realest thing.
