Start your 'NBA 2K19' MyCareer before the game is even out

NBA 2K19 doesn't come out until September 7th (Anniversary Edition), but those of you who are impatiently waiting for the game can get a good taste for it starting today. Thanks to the Prelude demo, you can can play the first chapter of this year's MyCareer mode on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and you'll be able to take any progress you make with you once you get the full copy. In 2K19, the story mode is called "The Way Back," which will let you take your custom player on a journey from China to the G-League and, finally, the NBA.

Your goal, naturally, is going to be to develop your skills quickly so you can make it back to The Association, where you'll be able to play with one of the 32 NBA teams (and hopefully not be a benchwarmer for long). If you have an PS4 or Xbox One, just go to your respective game store to download the NBA 2K19 Prelude demo. Just try not to get through the chapter you're allowed to play too fast, otherwise you're going to be twiddling your thumbs until the official launch.
