    WWE 2K18 will feature two features called MyPLAYER and a new mode entitled Road to Glory (RTG).

    MyPLAYER - a staple in 2K titles - features more customization and options than ever before. This year, fans can use their MyPLAYER in both MyCAREER and Road to Glory. It is worth noting that as users begin to create their MyPLAYER, the initial options in the MyPLAYER Wizard will be limited but the user can go into greater detail through EDIT MyPLAYER and UPGRADES. Users can also unlock more parts and moves from new Loot Crates which can be acquired by spending in-game Virtual Currency. This form of VC can only be earned by playing the game and not through cash purchases, such as in the NBA 2K franchise.

    Per the blog: Road to Glory is completely new online experience where MyPLAYERS from all over the world battle against each other. Players can compete daily in a variety of match types to gain stars, boosts, Superstar parts and VC. In addition, by increasing their levels, they can further customize their MyPLAYERs to gain the advantage over others. Overall, players are encouraged to see if they have what it takes to secure entry into pay-per-view events and defeat their favorite WWE Superstars to earn special rewards.

    The update adds in HDR Support, but more importantly addresses some gameplay issues and concerns such as increased 'break on throw' reactions in zone coverage, decreased effectiveness of Ball Carrier special moves, increased pass rush when QB holds the ball for longer times in the pocket, and more.

    At an event in New York City populated by invite-only, primarily members of the NBA 2K community, 2K Sports announced the keystone mode for NBA 2K18: Run The Neighborhood (RTN). RTN merges MyCAREER & MyPark into one mode as players work towards progressing their player on the 'Road to 99' (OVR rating).

    While no longer narrative-driven, players can now navigate around a semi open-world environment to determine their path/daily activities, while also having some surprise elements/interactions in the mode. Featuring product branding, some of the locales users can visit in this world include: a Ruffles court (featuring a 4-point line), Gatorade Training Facility, Mountain Dew NBA 3X court, Foot Locker (to purchase/attain in-game apparel), Spalding store, among others. Users can also play NBA games per the norm in MyCAREER, giving them the option and freedom to play the mode as they see fit.

    2K Sports has released a trailer showcasing and the full rosters for the All-Time Teams in NBA 2K18. Each NBA squad will have an All-Time Team featuring the best to have ever played for that particular franchise.

    While taking criticism historically for their reliance on Virtual Currency, the NBA 2K franchise has been relaxed and geared towards the consumer when it comes to allowing players to use Legends and All-Time players in the open and not behind a paywall or comparable MyTEAM mode as other developers do.

    However, some players who have/will not sign licensing rights put a dent into this new feature. Some of the more high profile former players missing from the All-Time Teams include Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller, Moses Malone, and Rasheed Wallace.

    It is also worth noting that the All-Time Oklahoma City Thunder team contains numerous players from the Seattle Supersonics who did not get their own All-Time team as some fans had hoped.

    NBA 2K's Mike Wang has written the first gameplay blog of the year for NBA 2K18 detailing on the court improvements coming to the title.

    The most noteworthy item of the blog is the change away from an animation-driven system to a new motion engine that is driven by stick input and player's attributes all done on the fly. One of the more long-standing complaints of the NBA 2K franchise was their reliance on animations, some long and drawn out.

    Other points of interest from the blog: improved pull-up jumper game, new triple threat jabs and fakes, walking size-ups and combos, Receiver Control, improvements to steals and blocks, more varieties and outcomes in hustle plays, and more.
