Rarely will you see me praise 2K games, but it would seem the backlash they received from NBA 2K18 was the push they needed to get back on track. Today a new trailer dropped for 2K19 highlighting this year’s MyCareer story.
It involves your journeyman not being drafted and going overseas to play where he’s eventually picked up by an NBA G-League team. This year’s mantra is “find your way”, so it’s all about making your way into the NBA. If you missed the trailer click here to watch it. The news that slipped past most peoples radar is the official 2K twitter account announcing that you’ll be allowed to skip cutscenes in this year’s game. The icing on the cake is being able to skip the entire prelude after your first playthrough.
From the outside looking in this may not seem like a big deal, but those in the 2K community know this is God’s Plan. NBA 2K18’s grind was too intense for multiple reasons. VC, rookie mode removed and too many annoying cutscenes lead to many players burning out early. Skipping cutscenes will cut down on the grind which means you can focus more on improving your MyPlayer. Now, let’s just hope the VC grind is reduced and rookie mode returns!
You can skip cut scenes in #NBA2K19 and in your second and subsequent careers, you can skip the entire Prelude.
