NBA 2K20 Pre-Order Guide | All NBA 2K20 editions and where to buy them

It’s that time again: A brand new edition of your favorite basketball game is on the way! Our NBA 2K20 Pre-Order Guide is here to help you figure out which of the game’s three editions you should buy and what exactly you’re be getting for them!

NBA 2K19 made a splash last year, although it had its fair share of problems. Normally, players would be stuck dealing with this stuff for a few years. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at things), this is a sports game and that means that there’s going to be a new release every year. This year’s edition has finally been announced and our NBA 2K20 pre-order guide has all of the juicy details about the digital goodies you can score when you buy the game early!

This year’s version of the officially-licensed basketball game features Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans on the cover and shares the credit along with Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat. This is the second time that Mr. Davis will be on the cover of a 2K basketball game, as he previously shared the honor with LeBron James and Stephen Curry for NBA 2K16. As for Mr. Wade, he recently retired from the NBA after more than 15 years playing professionally, the majority of which he spent with the Miami Heat.

NBA 2K20 Pre-Order

There will be three distinct editions of NBA 2K20 available for sale. Each of the three editions has different levels of digital goodies available for players. The Standard Edition has bonuses that are only available if you pre-order, but the Digital Deluxe Edition and Legend Edition will grant you some bonus digital items even if you purchase it post-launch.

NBA 2K20 Standard Edition

The NBA 2K20 Standard Edition will be available both in physical and digital versions. Pre-ordering this version of the game will net you the following:

  • 5,000 Virtual Currency

  • 10 MyTEAM League packs
    • These will be delivered at a rate of one per week.

Do note that unlike the NBA 2K20 Digital Deluxe Edition and NBA 2K20 Legend Edition, you will only get the above if you pre-order. If you decide to just purchase the regular version of the game after launch, you’re not going to get any of the cool digital goodies listed here.

NBA 2K20 Digital Deluxe Edition

If you don’t care about having a disc and you’d like just a little extra, the NBA 2K20 Digital Deluxe Edition ups the ante with a lot more goodies.
