The Prelude is essentially a demo for NBA 2K18, and is sure to take the PS4 and Xbox One’s top spots for free games. It’s just enough for you to dip your toes into the new game, and is a great idea to bring in new players as well. It’s got a focus on street ball, which makes sense in that street ball feels a bit more open to everyone, not just pros or long-time fans.

It also makes sense in the way that real pro basketball players likely spent a whole lot of time practicing their jumpshot at a set of hoops down the street or near their local school. The trailer is pretty cool, and as someone who hates most of the popular sports, it even looks fun to me, so that’s gotta say something, right? Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think or if you’re excited for the new game!
