NBA 2K21 – New Challenges and Hero Cards Revealed In The New Update

After a couple of successful months from the lunch of the best NBA game so far, season 5 is here and there are a couple of things you should know about it. First of all, it is called Age of Heroes and it has kind of a cartoonish vibe to it which is nice.

There are many game improvements with the latest update, but most players are mainly focused on the MyTEAM mode. This mode enables you to assemble your team of superstars from the Modern Age and Golden Age of NBA, and with the latest update, we will see new challenges, rewards, hero-themed cards, and even new players.

New Challenges

NBA 2K21 is available to all consoles, but in order to get the most out of this realistic game, you need a next-gen console like the PlayStation 5. The new season 5 update comes with a ton of content including many challenges that will be only available in MyTEAM mode for PlayStation 5 users.

These challenges are updated every season and this season will bring back the iconic legends like T-Mac and Vinsanity. Most of the challenges are very interesting and will give you great rewards.

Hero-Themed Cards

The other more significant update that comes with the new season is the new hero-themed cards. It is an exciting update that will enable you to create an Avengers-like team that will face everything in its path.

The new MyTEAM update will enable to you receive hero-themed cards that can be unlocked by playing games or in-game purchases.

There are 15 collectible cards from the Modern Age of NBA including superstars like Mitchell Robinson and Luka Doncic, as well as 15 hero-themed legends from the Golden Age of NBA.

Signature Challenge

When it comes to signature challenges, it is safe to say that the game would be much better if every legend had a signature challenge. Season 5 will feature Michael Jordan’s iconic moments such as the “THE LAST SHOT”.

You can complete all the challenges to earn a Diamond Jordan shoe and a Hall of Fame badge. Remember, signature challenges can be performed only by the player that has that kind of challenge. So, if you don’t own a Michael Jordan card, you can obtain one for free with this redeem code in MyTEAM “JORDAN-LAST-SHOT”.

MyTEAM Tournament

One of the best ways to boost your in-game progress is by participating in the fun MyTEAM Limited tournament modes every weekend. There is a new lineup of requirements each week, and every card in your collection is important. You can also earn wins in order to pick up a Championship ring each week, and by collecting 5 rings you can earn the Season 5 limited Grand Prize which is a Galaxy Opal Pau Gasol.

If you think you have enough skills you can participate in this tournament alongside the 32 hopeful qualifiers around the globe. The winner will receive a $250K reward and $50K for the runner-up.

New things this season

If that’s not enough you have additional season agendas that will help you earn XP and progress through the Seasonal level which is necessary for unlocking all-star dunk champion Diallo, Joe Harris, and more. David Robinson is also here after you’ve reached level 40 in MyTEAM.

On top of that, there are new players in the Exchange including Khris Middleton, Larry legend, and many more that will help you build the ultimate squad. So, there is a chance you find the NBA players with most triple doubles of all time in the game (click here to find out more).

Final Words

These are some of the latest updates for NBA 2K21 that are mainly focused on MyTEAM improvements and content updates. It worth mentioning that it is a chunky update that will bring a new vibe to the overall game which is always nice and makes things more interesting.

Just make sure you complete all the challenges and earn every reward since there will be a limited time mode which will give you a huge boost in your in-game progress.
