Posted May 2nd, 2016 at 4:30 pm


The fifth post-release patch for NBA 2K16 went out today on PS4 and is expected to follow soon on Xbox One. It does not appear this is the possible “Steph Curry Patch” first discussed back in March based on the provided notes, however instead it will heavily affect the sketchy ongoing “Road to the Finals” competition by addressing heavily utilized gameplay exploits.

♦Updated player portraits for a number of players.
♦Tuned the effectiveness of long outlet passes for players with the Break Starter badge.
♦Delay branching from Kobe Bryant Back size-up.
♦Re-worked size-up dribble launches to prevent unnaturally explosive first steps.
♦Tune miss chances for deep downcourt and cherry picking.
♦Dock vertical and rebounding when you go behind the basket. Don’t reset 3-in-the-key offense timer in baseline behind paint for human controlled blacktop players.
