How to Get to The Neighbourhood/Park in NBA 2K20

The Neighbourhood is back for NBA 2K20. Here’s how to unlock it.

NBA 2K20 features a huge variety of modes to enjoy. For purists, there’s MyTeam, where you can build and level up a team of your own. There’s also a brand new story to play through in MyCareer mode, though if you’re looking for something a little more casual, you’ll want to head into The Neighbourhood. The Neighbourhood/Park is back for 2K20, with new features to keep you busy. Unlocking it isn’t exactly obvious either, as you’ll need to play through a certain amount of the Career first. To point you in the right direction, we’ve put together this guide on unlocking The Neighbourhood in NBA 2K20. We’ll show you exactly how to do so, so that you can start hanging out in the Park with your pals.

How to Unlock The Neighbourhood in NBA 2K20

If you’re looking to unlock The Neighbourhood in 2K20, you’ll need to head into MyCareer Mode. We played roughly three hours, though this will vary for you because The Neighbourhood is unlocked after your first game as a drafted player. This means you’ll need to play through the drafts, and all of the tests associated. If you get drafted first then congrats, you can now head to The Neighbourhood.

Once you complete your first drafted game, you’ll head out to a new career overview menu. This is where you can cycle across to The Neighbourhood tab. From here you can select ‘Go To Neighbourhood’ or access your MyRep account.
