Usual concept of a game demo is to give an overview of the game. This is about to change with NBA 2k17 “The Prelude”. It will be available for free starting September 9th, 2016. This upcoming NBA 2K17 will allow its gamers to continue their progress from demo in to full game. “The Prelude” will give early access to MyCareer mode and allows one to play college games, interact with coaches etc.
Gamers who download “The Prelude” will have to choose from multiple authentic Divisions I collegiate programs and will have ability to boost their stocks from NBA draft. It will also include enhanced MyPlayer personalization using its new mobile phone face scan technology (via MyNBA2K Companion App). It will also have all-new tutorial mode in 2KU, which features Mike Krzyzewski, 2016 USA Basketball coach.

Alfie Brody, VP of Marketing for NBA 2K said –
The incredible excitement during the first week of NBA 2K16’s launch showed us there was an opportunity to connect with even more fans prior to the formal release of NBA 2K17, We think we’ve given our passionate community something special with this year, and can’t wait to see the response from not only existing fans, but new ones as well.
