Can't wait to build your character and hit the court in NBA 2K17's career mode? Well, you'll be able to get started prior to the game's launch, with a free Prelude download kicking things off from 9th September. Available from the PlayStation Store, the client will allow you to experience the opening exchanges of the campaign without needing to pay a penny.

It stands to reason that you'll be able to pull your progress into the final product, but the press release doesn't actually mention that, so maybe temper your expectations a tiny bit. Still, this is basically a pretty way of putting out a demo, isn't it? Will you be dribbling your way to the PlayStation Store as soon as this sampler's available?
