A reminder that NBA 2K18’s free demo, The Prelude, will be released this Friday.
The Prelude will be available to download on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from Friday, September 8, 2017, and gives players a chance to experience NBA 2K18’s brand new mode, The Neighborhood.
The Neighborhood is the franchise’s new shared world that brings together a variety of multiplayer modes, a jump shot game, social engagement with other users, special events, and a licensed Foot Locker store with over 2,000 pairs of shoes to buy.
You can get a comprehensive overview of what The Neighborhood brings to NBA 2K18 in this detailed infographic from 2K Games, and take a closer look at the game in action in this new trailer.
Any progress made in The Prelude prior to NBA 2K18’s official launch on September 15, 2017 can be saved and carried over.
At the time of writing there is no word on a demo for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, which apart from a slight graphical downgrade and 30FPS gameplay, is feature complete.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
