By Andy Mills, 1 year ago
2K have announced the player that will star on the cover of this year's instalment of the NBA 2K franchise, NBA 2K17. With a career best average of 23.1 points per game this season helping lead his team to the playoffs, the cover star is the Indiana Pacers' Paul George.

As well as being a passionate gamer himself, Paul George has history with the NBA 2K series, both as the star of a companion app for NBA 2K16 and as a guest commentator at the NBA 2K16 Road to the Finals championship.

Those who pre-order will receive a MyTeam Bundle pack that will have a card of the cover star, as well as 5,000 in the game's virtual currency and early access to play the game starting on September 16th. While a full release date was not officially confirmed, NBA 2K16's early access lasted for four days, meaning NBA 2K17 should launch on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One on or around September 20th, with the presumption that a similar wait is in store.
