The story mode in the “NBA 2K” series, known as MyCareer, is heading into its sixth year with “NBA 2K19.” The narrative-driven mode has involved different paths to reaching the league and many big names from Hollywood.

This time around, the story will include trips to China and the G-League along with star appearances from Anthony Mackie, Haley Joel Osment and much more. The trailer for MyCareer mode dropped Tuesday, offering gamers a first glimpse at what to expect out of this year’s version.

You can get an early start on MyCareer when the free Prologue releases on Aug. 31. All progress made while playing the Prologue will carry over to the full game if purchased.

Even though it’s only the 19th year of the series, this release is being celebrated as the 20th Anniversary, with LeBron James featured on the cover of the more expensive $100 edition that will be available Sept. 7. The standard edition with Giannis Antetokounmpo on the cover will sell for the regular $60 when it releases four days later on Sept. 11.
