Here's the First Gameplay Trailer for NBA 2K19

All hail the king.

The first trailer for NBA 2K19 gameplay dropped this morning. Titled, "Take the Crown" the trailer showcases the first footage of what NBA 2K19 looks and runs like.

Visual Concepts is celebrating 20 years of NBA 2K in a big way by highlighting some of the biggest stars of the game. NBA 2K19 already announced that LeBron James would be on the cover of the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19, while Giannis Antetokounmpo will be on the standard edition cover.

The trailer doesn't reveal much for actual features, but you get a good idea of what graphics and visuals are like for NBA 2K19, along with a song by Jay Rock. You can see that NBA 2K19 is going hard on LeBron, highlighting some of his "personally chosen" words written out across the screen during the gameplay trailer, with the crown symbol.

Xbox also announced two new Xbox One bundles for NBA 2K19, a 1TB Xbox One S bundle for $299.99 and a 1TB Xbox One X bundle for $499.99. Both bundles include a digital copy of NBA 2K19, 1-month trial of Xbox Game Pass, and 14 days of Xbox Live Gold.

NBA 2K19 is coming out on September 11 but getting the 20th Anniversary Edition for NBA 2K19 gives you a four-day early access to the game. So, you can play it on September 7. For more, check out our NBA 2K19 guide.
