Details on Latest Patch for NBA 2K15 Finally Released Following Arrival on Xbox One

Posted April 1st, 2015 at 11:45 am


A third post-release patch for NBA 2K15 went out three weeks ago on PlayStation 4 and PC. Today it finally made it to Xbox One after what may have been a failed certification which caused the delay, though 2K Sports would not comment on its status over the three week period.

All that had been previously identified from the patch was a fix so shoes could be applied to MyPlayer characters and a change to shooting percentages. The precise details of the update were being held back until it had reached all platforms. Response to the patch has been mixed with some feeling it has ruined shooting in the game by making it far too easy, while others have expressed appreciation at the reward that comes with taking open shots.

♦Tuned shot percentages for a more obvious distinction between open and covered shots. Slight increase to contact dunk frequency for high level dunkers.
♦Made a number of improvements to the player progression/regression systems that drive player ratings in MyGM/MyLEAGUE/MyCAREER.
♦Fixed rare case where user team would trade for the upcoming pick mid-draft (MyGM/MyLEAGUE) but the team that traded away the pick would retain the rights to the player.
♦Fixed an issue where some users were unable to access specific Online Leagues.
♦Removed “auto-hesitation” dribble animations that played when driving near defenders. Smoothed out the sprint to jog transition in the back court.
♦Corrected an issue in MyTEAM where improved player badges were not appearing in the correct color when viewing a head-to-head game. The correct badge level with appropriate gameplay adjustments are now being made.
♦The ‘Bruiser’ and ‘Hardened’ badges will now unlock properly in MyCAREER when the appropriate conditions are met.
♦Fixed a rare case where some users would occasionally see the title hang during the series of legal screens at the start of the game.
♦(XB1) Online games will no longer disconnect during gameplay when one or more users had minimized the title and returned while sitting on the Team Select screen prior to playing.
♦(XB1) Corrected an issue where Park Chat through the My NBA 2K15 app would not work for some users.
♦(XB1) Fixed an issue where a user’s gamertag would not update in the Roster Creator interface when the gamertag was changed outside of the title.
