How do the EVO cards work in the game?

NBA 2K22 MyTeam Evolution cards, also referred to as EVO cards, are exclusive to the mode. These are dynamic player items that allow gamers to upgrade them in the game.

The EVO cards feature specific stats that gamers must achieve with that player card in games across MyTeam mode. This typically means achieving a certain amount of points, rebounds, assists, steals, three-pointers, and/or blocks with a player.

You can go to the MyTeam tab in the mode and then scroll down to “Card Evolution” to see any EVO cards you have that can be evolved. That screen will reveal any specific requirements to upgrade cards.

Once the goals are reached, the player item moves to a higher level item, giving gamers a nice upgrade in their lineups. Typically, the card will move up a tier in terms of color. So for example, that Pink Diamond Shaq in New Year’s Resolution likely upgrades to a Galaxy Opal item.

There were several Evolution cards available in the game ahead of this release, but these become the best of the best. 2K also released the Locker Code below, for gamers to potentially acquire one of the new packs.

As of this report, there is less than two weeks left for MyTeam Season 3: Iced Out. With the New Year coming
