In NBA 2K22, you can shoot hoops with basketball superstars like Kevin Durant, Zion Williamson, Rui Hachimura and Luka Doncic. Build your dream NBA team and take to the court with friends in one-on-one online multiplayer, or play 3v3 in Blacktop mode. You can also climb the elite sports ladder in My Career mode. Customize your appearance, position, jersey number and more as you strive for NBA All-Star status.
If you're more of a behind-the-scenes player, you can take on the role of your dream team's general manager or head coach in Association mode. Manage your roster, make trades, sign free agents, scout talent and monitor your team's finances.
Apple's $5-per-month gaming subscription service Apple Arcade now includes almost 220 games in its catalog. Since it launched in September 2019, the service has built up a stack of original, exclusive games, as well as remastered favorites and App Store classics. The games already found in the App Store don't have ads or in-app purchases on Apple Arcade, and any add-ons come unlocked. The service adds new games every week.
If you're interested in trying Apple Arcade, you can get a three-month free trial when you buy a new device, or one month for free if you're signing up for the first time. Open the App Store and tap the little joystick icon at the bottom of the screen to launch the service.
