Here's a summary from NBA 2K21 MT blog of what the City is:"Imagine a map that's many, many times bigger than preceding Neighborhoods. A layout that looks like a modern metropolis, complete with towering skyscrapers, sprawling plazas, along with a town center. Oh, and it houses four different boroughs that are controlled by four rival Affiliations. And with that, I am incredibly proud to declare that Affiliations are BACK! I will go into more details on Affiliations a little further below. For now, let's keep painting the image of exactly what The City is. The City is the most ambitious execution of a virtual basketball community. . .ever. The sheer amount and wide range of buildings and basketball courts which we were able to create and fit in the map still amaze me to this day!"
Here's a peek at some of the other standout points. Here's a quotation from that portion of the site:
"The City is large. The return of Affiliations, however, might be just as big - if not bigger. For some years now, one of the most requested features from the NBA 2K community has been Affiliation-based gameplay. Obviously, we're incredibly excited to bring it back in a meaningful way that provides competitive thickness to the City. This is something we have wanted to do for several decades now, and the energy of this next-gen consoles eventually makes it possible for us to view our vision through."
