The launch of NBA 2K22 is almost here and its preload date and download size has been revealed.

There’s no demo for this year’s instalment, which is disappointing for everyone who was hoping to play before committing to a purchase. Although the lack of a prelude is unfortunate, 2K Games has assured fans that there are significant improvements to gameplay as well as underwhelming features from last year such as the City and WNBA.

Fans should know the differences between console generations and bundles before buying, but – if you’re already committed – you can get ready to hit the court soon.
