City Slam is a new type of game in NBA 2K22 MyCareer that features 2 vs. 2, 3 vs. 3, and 4 vs. 4 games. It takes place in the City, and offers stiff competition for the veteran player. You can take part in increasingly challenging games for your created players to really test their skills. It’s a bracket-based mode, where the player picks their team from a pool of participants. When you assemble your best squad, you move on to the finals tournament and prove your worth there. Winning the finals gains the player some unique rewards.
City Slam mode is exclusive to next-gen versions of NBA 2K22, so to play, you must go to The City rooftops and talk to Jackson Ellis. The mode will be enabled within the game on Dec. 3, when Season 3 begins.
City Slam mode in NBA 2K22 is one of many side game modes added in the City content. 2K added these new modes to give single players something to sink their teeth into. It’s unclear if City Slam or any other modes will offer season progression or rewards. So while we don’t know a whole lot about it, we expect the rewards to be pretty nice.
But new game modes aren’t all the devs have planned. There’s a third season of post-launch content coming soon. NBA 2K22 Season 3 is going to get a little cold for the holidays. Season 3, titled: Iced Out, features holiday-themed rewards, new hoods, new animations, and a ton of new events. Expect MyCareer to get very festive.
