NBA 2K22 Isn’t Messing Around With ‘The W’

Last year, NBA 2K22 announced they are diving into the WNBA with the next installment of NBA 2K22. Which immediately got me hyped up. It’s about time that these athletes got some recognition and open the basketball world to a whole new side of gamers not always represented…women. This basically doubles the size of NBA 2K22 with a ton more players, customizations, and new modes. Check out all of the new features announced below!


Anyone, Anywhere can ball with the WNBA’s greatest and level up skills with new player progression features, off-day experiences, and updates to The W Online
2K today unveiled new features and updates coming to The W* in NBA® 2K22 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. The WNBA mode will introduce an all-new badge progression experience, three playable off-day experiences, and continue to provide ways to connect with friends online.

“Since introducing The W to NBA® 2K, we’ve set out to develop one of the most comprehensive sets of game modes and features focused on a women’s professional league,” said Felicia Steenhouse, Senior Producer at Visual Concepts. “It’s grounded in authenticity and delivers an experience that honors and elevates some of the best ballers in the world: the women of the WNBA.”

Building off last year’s unveil of The W*, this year continues to enhance the WNBA mode with added realism and more ways to experience the league both on and off the court:

  • New Player Progression – With a new badge progression feature, players will be able to earn badges to improve their games as they embark on the journey to become WNBA legends. Competing on the court or grinding it out in practice, players will be able to equip and upgrade badges to customize their MyPLAYER builds based on their unique specialties;
  • Off-Day Experience – The W introduces three new playable activities to make off-days count. Scrimmages, team practices, and contact workouts provide the opportunity for players to hone their craft as they develop throughout the season. In a franchise first, historic and current WNBA stars can be challenged in contact workouts to acquire new skills on one’s own path to greatness;
  • The W Online – Returning to NBA 2K22 for PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S consoles, The W Online brings new ways to connect with the 2K community. Players will be able to link up with friends before the matchmaking process to take to the court as a team. By playing games in The W Online, players will be able to earn Season XP as they level up to earn new prizes and awards.
