Shaquille O'Neal's legacy

NBA 2K22 Season 8 celebrates Shaq's legendary combination of athleticism and finesse that has dominated everywhere and shows that greatness is earned, not given for free. The Season also brings exciting updates to MyCAREER and MyTEAM, as well as other new features:

MyCAREER has new courts, new equipment, new rewards and more. Level 30 players can ramp up The City and Cancha Del Mar with the new go-kart slime skin, while level 40 players can dash through MyCAREER mode with a brand new pair of winged Dash2K I shoes. In addition, in Season 8 they can dress up completely in gold in the motto of the NBA Finals - with golden glasses, golden basketball jersey, golden long shorts, golden arm sleeves, golden hat, golden shirt and golden suit.

This season, MeinTEAM focuses on some players who have had a decisive impact on the community over the past decade. There is also an endgame Jokic, an Invincible Dr. J in the Token Market, an Invincible Dominique Wilkins reward for 2000 Triple Threat wins, and more. There's also a Kobe and Shaq pack at launch, and brand new Signature Challenges themed around AI, Kobe, MJ and LeBron. Last but not least, a final Domination stage for MyTEAM is introduced, where you play for an endgame James Harden.

The W* features two former WNBA stars-turned-coaches in Sheri Sam and Taj McWilliams-Franklin. In Season 8, players can rely on their basketball experience to gain Hall of Fame rank and receive their contacts as rewards, including a takeover perk picker. There's also 2K Breakthrough gear to earn, an Extra Points decal, a total of 4.000 VC, a seasonal apparel bundle, and exclusive W gear.
