If you haven’t gotten the chance to play NBA 2K20, Allstar Weekend is the best time to do so! 2K has announced that NBA 2K20 will be free to play for Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate members from February 13th to February 16th. An option to purchase a standard, deluxe, or legends edition of the game is available for those who opt to keep it after the promotion ends.
Prices are also discounted significantly by 67% on the Microsoft and Playstation store for the duration of All Star Weekend. The standard edition of the game dropped from $59.99 to $19.79, while the deluxe and legends edition clock in at $26.39 and $32.99 respectively. With attractions like the dunk contest, and the celebrity game, NBA basketball is sure to be a hot topic for the next 4 days. Players can even join the festivities in NBA 2K20!
Play Now mode offers the chance to play the Allstar Game set to take place Sunday, as Team Lebron or Team Giannis. The game also features the dunk contest and three point contest, though only playable through myCareer mode and GM mode. As pretty much the only game in town, NBA 2K20 is widely the go to for simulation basketball. Any progress made in the game will carry over to the paid version if users do decide to keep it. Largely considered to be deteriorating in quality since the demise of their only real competition, NBA Live, 2K most likely hopes to earn some good will from the community with this move.
All Star Weekend begins tomorrow, Friday the 14th, and lasts until Sunday the 16th. Fans can view the games on TNT and ESPN, and watch coverage on NBA TV and NBC. Follow 2k on Twitter for updates on NBA 2K20 and promotions related to All Star Weekend.
