Playstyles comprise a number of attributes that determine a player's abilities and style of play in The One. The mechanic is set to debut in NBA Live 18.

Overview[edit]

Playstyles are similar to the MyPLAYER Archetypes introduced in NBA 2K17's MyCAREER, and determine a player's key skills and style of play. There are different Playstyles for guards, wing players, and big men. Each Playstyle has its own primary and secondary skills, signature abilities, and Traits. Users are encouraged to choose the Playstyle that best suits the role they want to fill with their player.
