2K has revealed some of the new features coming to NBA 2K23's ‘The W’ mode for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, introducing new ways to be involved in how the league expands and community challenges, as well as a bunch of all-new content.

“This year The W provides an even more authentic WNBA experience that players can enjoy, from choosing how to expand the league to leading the community to new heights,” says Senior Producer Felicia Steenhouse.

The following are among the new features coming to The W in NBA 2K23:

  • Community Goals: Every Season will feature six weekly goals the community can work together to reach. If the community is able to reach the collective goal in four out of the six weeks in that Season, every NBA 2K23 player will receive a reward.
  • League Expansion: Progressing in The W to the maximum level 10 in League Popularity will unlock two Expansion Team slots. From here, players control how the league expands. Pick the city, build the arena, create the logo, and design the uniforms.
  • The W Rewards: New content and epic rewards, including WNBA Jerseys, Logo, and Coach MyTEAM cards, can be exclusively found in the W Online. Players can flaunt their jerseys, brand new historic gear, and more in both The W and The City;
  • Game Changers: Players who dedicate an immense amount of time and effort to achieve the community goal will earn Game Changer status. Game Changers will be granted exclusive access to rewards such as Team Takeover Boosts and will have the ability to imbue other players in The W Online with Player Boosts.
  • Contact Challenges: As players progress through the mode and gain contacts, they will be issued challenges.These challenges will have players circling certain games on the calendar, teaming up with new players in Contact Workouts, aiming for season-long stat goals, and stretching their game in new ways.
  • All Star & Commissioner’s Cup: For the first time in The W, players will have the opportunity to make the All-Star team and participate in the All-Star game, as well as the Commissioner’s Cup.

NBA 2K23 will be coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 9th September, with the return of Jordan Challenges and the new MyNBA Eras mode.
