NCAA Football 10 Patch #2 Details

Posted August 24th, 2009 at 4:28 pm


EA Sports has released the details of the second patch for NCAA Football 10. This appears to be a very substantial patch which is somewhat expected since the first patch addressed little other than fixing the sliders, adding the ability to turn off DLC cheats in Online Dynasty, and making the somewhat more accurate rosters playable online. The patch is expected to be out soon but no official date has been specified as of yet.

As has been pointed out though in the comments there is no mention of player progression. That has been one of the most discussed issues with the game and was anticipated to be fixed but according to the info has not been addressed. I’m also surprised that there hasn’t been adjustment made to the Aggressive (aka Facemask penalty) game planning.

Continue on for the full patch list. Will this patch be enough to change alter your opinion on the game or is it too little, too late? Leave your thoughts on it in the comments!

  • Tuned holding chances on Field Goals and Extra Points
  • Fixed a couple pass coverage issues with Wild Cat plays
