A part of its “early tip-off” promotion, NBA 2K17 is available this weekend ahead of its official September 20 launch for those that placed pre-orders.

Access to the game is available on all editions – The base game, Kobe Bryant Legend Edition, and Kobe Bryant Legend Edition-Gold. For those that just want to try out the game without pre-ordering, an application called “The Prelude” is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. Prelude allows players to try out features in the game’s MyCareer mode.
