NBA 2K23 Xbox Series X|S 'MyNBA Eras' Mode Unveiled With Classic Teams, NBA Legends, and Iconic Moments to Relive

Richard Walker

2K has unveiled the new ‘MyNBA Eras’ mode for NBA 2K23, available exclusively for the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 versions of the game. In MyNBA Eras, you'll be able to rewrite NBA history, creating new ‘what if?’ moments using classic teams and legendary NBA players.

Eras will enable you to start a MyNBA save file from a specific point in NBA history, at which point you can play through it solo, or with friends to relive or rewrite key moments. These include the following NBA Eras:

  • The Magic Vs Bird Era: Starting in 1983, players will find themselves in the heat of the Magic Johnson vs. Larry Bird rivalry that took over the league. Fans can rewrite 1980’s NBA history while they compete to draft the likes of Michael Jordan, Akeem Olajuwon, or any of the other NBA legends who were drafted in that legendary decade;
  • The Jordan Era: Beginning in 1991, The Jordan Era puts players right at the beginning of Jordan’s dominant run with the Chicago Bulls. They will battle with Isiah Thomas’ “Bad Boys” Detroit Pistons, John Stockton and Karl Malone, Olajuwon’s Houston Rockets, and Patrick Ewing’s New York Knicks for a chance to claim 1990’s basketball supremacy;
  • The Kobe Era: The Kobe Bryant era takes fans back to 2002, where a new generation of talent had emerged in the West, including Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs, Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, and of course, the Black Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant. In addition to competing against the legends of this era, players will also be fighting for draft position in anticipation of the legendary 2003 draft class;
  • The Modern Era: The previous MyNBA experience is now dubbed the Modern Era. Longtime fans of the mode can continue to start with the most up-to-date rosters available and enjoy the traditional MyNBA experience.

Each MyNBA Era will aim to replicate the atmosphere of the times in which they're set, with at least one unique court for each team, alongside their corresponding uniforms, while a visual filter system will recreate the TV experience of watching each game as they were originally broadcast. Every expansion team and franchise relocation will also be accounted for.

You'll also find more classic NBA content in NBA 2K23 in the returning Michael Jordan Challenge, featuring ten rebuilt challenges from the original NBA 2K11 Jordan Challenge, and five all-new ones.

You can find our more about My NBA Eras - exclusively for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 - in the trailer below, and the latest Courtside Report here. NBA 2K23 will be heading to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 9th September.
