In NBA 2K23, a big part of the MyCAREER experience is the online mode that comes with it that grants your created player a chance to participate and play in the NBA 2K community.

This year, the online community you’ll play in will be based on the console generation you own. For next-gen users (PS5 or Xbox Series X), ‘The City’ will be the online mode you will play in. Per the announcement below from NBA 2K, you’ll see that The City will have its own special reveal coming up next Wednesday on September 7th.

Updates on #NBA2K23 until #2KDay

However, for those that play on current-gen consoles, including the PS4 and Xbox One, the online neighborhood you will have exclusive access to is what NBA 2K23 is calling, the ‘G.O.A.T. Boat’. NBA 2K23 will reveal the latest features for its current-gen online mode tomorrow, September 2nd. Be sure to stay tuned on NBA 2K’s social media platforms for more details.

For those of you that played NBA 2K22, the G.O.A.T Boat appears to be a similar online neighborhood representation of what the ‘Cancha Del Mar’ cruise ship was, a feature that was a big success in the previous edition of the franchise.

On that note, here’s everything you need to know about the G.O.A.T. Boat leading up to its reveal tomorrow.

      What is The G.O.A.T. Boat?

      The G.O.A.T. Boat is NBA 2K23’s online neighborhood for current-gen users. In case you don’t know, the neighborhood is the online feature connected to MyCAREER that allows you to upgrade your player in various ways and immerse yourself in several engaging online modes with your player as well.

      At the moment, there hasn’t been much leaked about what the G.O.A.T. Boat will entail and how it will differentiate from last years’ Cancha Del Mar neighborhood cruise ship. But if there’s anything we can use in order to anticipate what this new online feature might consist of, it’s none other than the Cancha Del Mar and the features that were added last year.

      NBA 2K22: Cancha Del Mar Neighborhood

      The Cancha Del Mar cruise ship was a successful first attempt at what fans could be getting from the G.O.A.T. Boat that’s coming to NBA 2K23. There’s no guarantee that will be the case. However, it wouldn’t come to a surprise if the Cancha Del Mar served as a blueprint for what the G.O.A.T. Boat will be.

      There was a lot introduced in last years’ cruise ship online neighborhood. So to get a better idea of what we can potentially expect NBA 2K23 to build off of, we’re going to review the key features that were added in last year’s installment of the franchise.


      MyCOURT was a really neat feature that granted fans the chance to build and customize their own court. From colorful murals, different court styles, and a bunch of scoreboards to pick from, MyCOURT was a great way to build your own personal court that could be a spot for you to improve yet be creative.

      Season Excursions

      Arguably the coolest new feature from the Cancha Del Mar last year, was the ability to travel to different places across the globe and visit scenic courts for an excursion. By doing these excursions, you had the chance to earn special rewards and unique experiences that enhanced your MyPLAYER progression.

      There’s no knowing whether excursions will be available to try in NBA 2K23’s G.O.A.T. Boat neighborhood. But considering how big of a hit it was last year, it would be surprising if they didn’t bring it back.

      Game Modes & Rewards

      A neat component about the neighborhood in NBA 2K22, was the layout of the game modes and the rewards you could get for doing simple things. Each game mode was on a certain deck of the boat, whether it was 3v3s, 2v2s, or ProAm. This provided a plethora of different games players could try out and explore.

      In addition, the rewards you could earn provided a nice flare to your experience. Aside from the Daily Spin or Daily Pick Em rewards, you could also prizes twice per season by visiting restaurants on board. The two-for-one perk of nourishing your player while getting reward was a good add on that NBA 2K23 could bring to G.O.A.T. Boat.
