Editions & Cover Players
On June 5th 2018, LeBron James was revealed as the cover player for the 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19. The cover art is a departure from the usual style for NBA 2K, and notably features LeBron wearing a generic black jersey. On July 2nd, the cover player for the Standard Edition of the game was revealed to be Giannis Antetokounmpo. The cover art featuring Antetokounmpo had been inadvertently leaked a week prior. Ben Simmons was announced as the first Australian cover player on July 4th. The 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19 retails for $99.99 USD, while the Standard Edition costs $59.99 USD.
NBA 2K19's pre-order bonuses were revealed on June 5th, alongside the announcement of the 20th Anniversary Edition featuring LeBron James on the cover. Unlike previous years, only customers who pre-ordered the 20th Anniversary Edition were able to play the game four days early on September 7th.
