2K Sports yesterday released a new patch for NBA 2K14 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It marks the fourth update to the game since its release with earlier ones having to address numerous serious issues. The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions did not get a single patch as the company moved its focus almost entirely to the new systems once they had shipped.
This patch primarily works to improve The Park mode, but also fixes a particular freeze bug in MyCareer, and prevents duplicate players from being used in a MyTeam lineup.
The post-release support related to The Park is probably not surprising considering the mode may rise to even greater prominence in NBA 2K15. The update does not appear to have addressed in any manner server outages, the rate of which seem to have risen as of late. Continue on for the full list of fixes and improvements delivered in the latest patch.
♦Voice Chat should now be much more reliable when three or more people on a team are voice-enabled.
♦Fixed an issue where users would not see server-based content (thumbnails in the store, NBA Today video, clothes in The Park) when signing into a first party account after having already booted the game.
♦Fixed an in issue in MyCAREER where an in-game save (specifically, in the game before you were set to receive your own signature shoe) would freeze when attempting to later load the file.
♦In MyCAREER, the On-Court Coach signature skill will now properly allow you to call plays when equipped.
♦In MyGM, fixed an issue where no players would appear (in specific circumstances) in the list when attempting to propose a trade.
♦Fixed in issue in Online Leagues that prevented some users from being able to matchmake against select other users. Online Leagues in general should be much more stable now.
♦Duplicate players (the same player from different years) are no longer allowed in the same lineup for a MyTEAM game, as was originally intended.
♦The default quarter length in MyCAREER has been reset to 6 minute quarters, as originally intended. Users are welcome to re-adjust as necessary.
♦Addressed an issue where specific player types were unable to complete alley-oops.
♦Users will no longer experience a freeze when loading into The Park after previously playing a different MyCAREER file that was terminated by quitting out of the Rookie Showcase.
♦Fixed an issue where players would sometimes stop moving or even skip/glitch around the court when spectating a game.
♦Fixed an issue where a game would sometimes disconnect when another player quit the match.
♦Players will no longer get stuck after lining up to start a game if another user drops/quits right as the game is about to start.
♦Addressed a very rare crash that would occur when users would spam their controllers while waiting on a ‘Got Next’ spot.
♦Fixed an issue where a user playing on controller two will not up in The Park on other user’s screens.
♦A number of other smaller Park changes have been made to increase the stability and overall performance of this feature.
