2K Games today revealed new details about The Jordan Challenge mode, which is returning to NBA 2K series for the first time in over a decade. 

NBA 2K23 is just around the corner and keep that hype train at full speed, 2K Games have today shared more details about the game's Jordan Challenge, which is returning to the series after a long break. 

The Jordan Challenge is a game mode which allows players to experience some of the greatest moments of Micheal Jordan's career including the 1998 NBA Finals where The GOAT hit that iconic 20-footer to give the Bulls their third consecutive NBA championship.

2K Games say Jordan Challenge features completely rebuilt challenges from 2K11 and has five, brand new moments. 

Here's the breakdown of the Jordan Challenge mode and what it brings to the game: 

  • Recreation of a bygone era, from the 1982 NCAA National Championship to the 1998 NBA Finals. Each challenge features a pre-game interview with a luminary that was a part of what made every game special
  • A complete presentational package including a video filter system that recreates the television experience of these games as they were originally broadcast during the 1980s and 1990s, showcasing the look, feel and sound that takes players back to the original game
  • Key gameplay changes to fit the era, such as a heavier focus on the post and mid-range game and reworking the transition game for the 1980s feel, including tighter transition lanes and more players cutting to the basket with a numbers advantage, as opposed to the spotting up for three you see in today’s NBA
  • More physicality modeled on the floor and in the paint, along with new signature style upgrades for classic greats like Magic Johnson and Larry Bird, featuring all-new jump shot, layup and dunk packages
  • Hand-checking and hard-hitting body-ups for a different feel to the one-on-one battles with accurately represented regulations that mirror the 1990s basketball era, like the "Bad Boy" Pistons with their famous "Jordan Rules" and more.
