First NBA 2K25 Details Include Cover Stars, Mode Updates, September Release Date

2K has announced details for the first time for the latest edition of its annual NBA 2K series. NBA 2K25 will feature four different covers with three different cover athletes, depending on which edition you pick up. In addition to revealing the cover art, 2K has also provided the first screenshots and high-level details about the upgrades players will receive.

The cover star lineup includes Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum. Tatum, 26, is a five-time All-Star, a gold medalist at the 2020 Olympic Games, a member of the US Men's National Team for the 2024 Olympic Games, and has won his first NBA championship. Tatum is included in the NBA 2K25 Standard Edition.

Meanwhile, those who purchase the NBA 2K25 WNBA Edition will see Las Vegas Aces forward A'ja Wilson on its cover. Wilson has won two consecutive championships with the Aces. She won Finals MVP honors for the 2023 championship and is a two-time WNBA MVP and six-time All-Star. Wilson also won a gold medal at the 2020 Olympic Games and will represent the United States again at the 2024 Olympic Games. Together, Tatum and Wilson co-headline the NBA 2K25 All-Star Edition.

The final cover athlete of NBA 2K25 is recent Hall of Fame inductee, eight-time NBA All-Star and legendary winner of the 2000 NBA Dunk Contest, Vince Carter. Carter graces the cover of the NBA 2K25 Hall of Fame Edition. You can see all four covers below.

This year's entry marks the return of the MyCareer mode along with new updates and a new MyTeam mode. For the new-gen versions on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC (for those with compatible specs), players can expect an additional sixth era in MyNBA, a more compact and interactive City and the return of the women-focused mode The W. Crossplay will also be introduced on the new-gen versions.
