For new-gen console players, the penthouse apartment is one of three rewards that can be earned by accumulating 1,500,000 MVP point. Doing so requires completing various missions in the City and throughout MyCareer mode. The number of MVP points awarded per activity is determined by which class the quest is placed in and the difficulty to complete it. NBA 2K22 also awards players 10,000 VC and a zipline when finishing an MVP for the City challenge.
The new features, playable areas and game mechanics of NBA 2k22 provide players with a variety of enjoyable gameplay options. There are some differences between the current and next-gen games, with the largest of which is the inclusion of the City on the latest systems. Users on older gaming systems will be playing in the Neighborhood as well as on the Cancha Del Mar Cruise Ship instead of navigating the City.
The City offers a large playing area that players can relax and explore. This area is filled with chances for players to interact with NPCs, undertake side quests and upgrading to the penthouse that overlooks the City. As the City grows into an expansive, open-world zone like the City, there comes the need for unlocking spawn points. It will result in an easier navigation process and faster completion.
The players can make use of spawn points to begin playing in a particular area in the City. The capability to unlock them will begin when the side mission Unlock Spawn Point becomes available. There are a total of seven spawning points for players to select from.
The spawn points will be unlocked at the same time when the side quest is complete. Players are required to travel a specific distance through the City in order to finish the quest. The setting of the spawn point may be done on in the City map by selecting the desired area to spawn after which you confirm it.
