Visual Con Concept will select the game’s first mayor from the NBA2K community to serve the initial term. Each Affiliate will then vote for their representative via an in-game poll – in case you have not filled out the elections in the past week. Each term lasts six weeks, and as mayor you will have the power to determine your faction’s visual identity. A visual concept will allow the mayor to customize the Branch’s uniform, court design, and more.
As you explore the center, you will find basketball rings attached to several buildings. Here, you will be able to challenge other players with RIDE games and half-court games with up to six players in total. Along the way, you will also come across NPCs who will assign you quests to complete. Like their counterparts in most other MMOs, they will have an exclamation mark on their heads to let you know they have a quest for you to complete. Naturally, there are also in-game stores around the world where you can customize the look of your character.
You will be able to view the City once NBA 2K21 launches on Xbox Series X and Series S on November 10, and PlayStation 5 on November 12.
