I preordered NBA 2K18 on Steam, so I will be using that platform to show you how to access the DLC. The same logic applies to both Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Once you preorder NBA 2K18, you will receive two codes: one for the base game and one for your DLC items.

On Steam, go to the games tab and click on the “Activate a product on Steam” option. This will open the product activation window. Click next on the window and select I agree, this will take you to a Product Code field. Copy paste or type your NBA 2K18 DLC code into this field. This will tie your DLC to your account.
