NBA 2K22: How to play with your friends online?
The previous versions of NBA had a Play With Friends tab which NBA 2K22 lags in. However, that doesn’t mean you can not play the video game with your friends. After all, it is the most fun feature of NBA 2K. So, how do you play NBA 2K22 with your friends? Keep reading to know the process.
The developers have not advertised the Play With Friends feature as much in NBA 2K22. Many have said that the feature seems hidden and strangely placed. However, it is not as hard to access. Launch your NBA 2K22 game. On the main menu, click on Play Now, and the first tab will be for Quick Play. Click on Quick Play. You will be taken to the Quick Play lobby, where you can easily invite friends to play with you. To do so, look at the bottom left of the screen. You will find a menu with a few options: Random Team, Load Roster, Advance, and Invite Friends. Obviously, the Invite Friends option is what we are looking for.
So, select the Invite Friends option. Doing so will open up your friend list. You will be able to see the status of your friends on the list. So, if your friend is engaged in a game already, you will know. Clicking on your friend in the list will send him an invite to join your lobby. So, that’s all. If he accepts the request, he will be in your lobby. You can then start the game with your friend. However, fans are not happy with the user interface of NBA 2K22. We think 2K could have implemented a more straightforward way to play with friends and added some customizable settings. Let’s wait for future updates!
