More Details on MyPark and The Stage for NBA 2K15

Posted October 1st, 2014 at 2:15 pm


Earlier today 2K Sports released a trailer for NBA 2K15’s MyPark and teased The Stage. Now the company has provided expanded details on both.

MyPark and the Jordan Rec Center within it sound compelling. As far as The Stage goes one has to wonder how 2K Sports is getting around this being considered gambling, because it really is, and there are legalities to consider in that. A 45K VC game (the max on PS4) is for all intents and purposes putting $9 on the line – though that cost or the winnings ends up being split between the participants. The Stage is exclusive to PS4 for the first month. 

♦Affiliations: You’ll pledge your loyalty to one of three affiliations: The Old Town Flyers, the Sunset Beach Ballers or the Rivet City Rough Riders. Each has its own eight-court home park and unique flavor of basketball, emphasized by slight boosts to various aspects of your game.

♦MyPARK Rep: After selecting a park, you’ll begin earning a reputation for yourself with MyPARK rep, an earned-only feature which takes into account not only wins, but your teammate grade and opponents. As your rep increases, you will unlock various MyPARK-specific upgrades.

♦The MyPARK Championship: Beginning October 11 and lasting through the weekend preceding the NBA All-Star game, the MyPARK Championship will pit all three affiliations against one another in weekly rounds of competition. Earn points that count toward the MyPARK Championship, where the winning affiliation will receive a newly designed home park!

♦Jordan Rec Center: If street ball isn’t for you, try out the Jordan Rec Center, which features four full-sized courts and five-minute quarters of 5v5, NBA rules basketball. Games played here also count toward your MyPARK Rep and the MyPARK Championship.

♦Squads: Whether you prefer playing on hardwood or the blacktop, form a Squad with anyone currently in your park by viewing the list of players and sending them an invite. Once you have your team, use any designated Squad area located on each court. When that game is over you will all step onto the court together as a Squad.

♦With the new Attribute Upgrades feature, you will no longer see a park full of 99s that are impossible to guard. You’ll become a specialist depending on how you upgrade your MyPLAYER.

♦MyPARK games have been shortened to 15 points, which will shorten Got Next wait times.

♦With the new always-on game score overlay, you won’t have to change camera angles to find out the current score.

♦The teammate grade meter shows how well you’re playing at a glance without having to bring up the game menu.

♦The MyNBA2K15 mobile app makes it easy to send texts to your squad or anyone in your park. Just type in the app and the text pops up on their screen.

♦Matchups are now based on height with weighting for position rather than simple join order.

The Stage
The Park makes its return on the rooftop of a building located in the heart of the city in the form of The Stage. This is a neutral site where the love for your park is set aside for your love of VC. It’s time to put your VC where your mouth is.

Step up to one of the courts and Ante-Up the amount of VC displayed. Win and you split the pot with your team. Lose and you’ll be walking off the court with lighter pockets. Squads are supported here as well. The Stage is available exclusively on PS4 for 30 days.

For those of you that enjoy high-stakes gaming, we have the High Rollers area, where your highest limits will forever live exclusively on PS4, with Ante amounts up to 45,000VC for a single game! Time to step up that game!
