Earlier this month, 2K Sports said that it’s adding a mode that will let users play some of the NBA’s most historic games, re-creating not only the classic teams, but also the hairstyles and uniforms of the past.

Players who get the game early will also have access to two bonus teams: the 1990-91 Golden State Warriors and the 2001-02 Sacramento Kings. The title hits shelves on Oct. 4.
