Posted on May 7, 2014 AT 10:35am

NBA 2K15 is coming to consoles and PC October 7 and will feature Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Kevin Durant as this year’s cover athlete, 2K Games announced.

“I’m honored to be selected for the cover of NBA 2K,” Durant said in a press statement. “I’ve been an avid fan and player of NBA 2K since I was a kid, and being selected as the sole cover athlete of NBA 2K15 is an amazing accomplishment at this point of my life. I feel like my time has come.”

This marks Durant’s fourth time as a videogame cover athlete. Two years ago, he appeared on the cover of NBA 2K13 alongside the LA Clippers’ Blake Griffin and the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose. Before that, Durant alone graced the cover of 2010’s cancelled NBA Elite 11 and 2007’s NCAA March Madness 08.

NBA 2K15 is set to launch across PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 October 7 in North America and October 10 internationally.
