Your player begins his journey in the Chinese League, and Visual Concepts spared no expense making that international environment feel real. “We drop you into an entire Chinese experience with a full Chinese environment and commentary set,” Thomas said. “Each game is actually called in Chinese, which really sucks you into that feeling of being there.”
Your MyCareer takes shape after earning a spot on the Mad Ants roster.
After making waves in China your player gets a call from Los Angeles, but your hopes of a tryout with the Lakers are quickly dashed when you’re immediately pushed down to the South Bay Lakers. That same day, the Lakers trade you to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, a G League team with a cast of unique characters. Maintaining authenticity, your games with the Mad Ants also have their own G League commentary. Outside of gameplay, you attend state fairs and ultimately come to respect Indiana’s hometown approach.
“This year we put a lot of effort into building that pre-pro environment around you,” Thomas said. “It sets the stage for an unbelievable Career mode that comes after that.”
