Details on the fourth patch for NBA 2K17

Posted November 22nd, 2016 at 7:00 am


The fourth post-release patch for NBA 2K17 is now available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well as on PC. The earlier updates made to the game have addressed the ability to release roster updates, added PS4 Pro support, fixed the shot meter and various bugs, and tweaked gameplay and presentation. Despite that major issues have remained most notably related to CPU defensive AI and the game’s online Pro-Am mode.

The new patch doesn’t note any changes to the big defensive AI concerns that have been highly discussed by the community and also doesn’t claim to have fixed the connection problems plaguing Pro-Am. Instead it focuses heavily on MyPark gameplay adjustments while fixing the bug that prevented passing icons from displaying with PS4 Pro systems. 


♦The Hornets will now have their correct court projection during the pre-game presentation.

♦Fixed an indefinite simulating screen that would occur when your MyPLAYER retired after the completion of his 20-year MyCAREER.

♦Fixed a hang that would occur in MyGM/MyLEAGUE when attempting to enter the Staff Signing experience when the team had no Assistant Coach (retired) and an expired Head Coach.

♦Addressed an issue in MyGM/MyLEAGUE where a league filled with Classic and Euroleague teams would sometimes hang late in the season when simulating.

♦Fixed a MyTEAM Challenge case where the in-game overlay would claim the challenge was not successfully completed when it actually was.

♦Addressed a case where a MyTEAM card that was sent to the Auction House could still appear in lineup menu as being available (when it actually wasn’t).


♦Fixed an issue where pass icons were not appearing for users playing in 4K on the PS4 Pro.

♦Removed some long, drawn out dribble loss (pickup) animations from the body up system to improve responsiveness.

♦Made some aggressive bump back dribble collisions MyPARK only.

♦Prevent defenders from being able to steal the ball from an inbounder immediately after checking it in when playing in MyPARK.

♦All players are in position before checking ball when playing half-court MyPARK games.

♦Sped up the CPU’s ability to get into its offensive sets and run plays.

♦Fixed an issue that would sometimes cause CPU-controlled ball handlers to run out of bounds when attacking the baseline.

♦Cleaned up issue with unrealistic speed bursts in some size-up escape and combo moves.

♦Fixed a case that caused the wrong dribble move to queue up when attempting to perform driving combo moves (e.g. double crossover).

♦Updated Broadcast Stadium cameras for Bucks, Mavericks, Kings, and Clippers.

♦Beluba camera updated to zoom out more in transition and to have a wider range of zoom and height adjustment settings.


♦A number of performance improvements to solidify the Pro-Am experience.

♦Fixed issue that would cause some users to hang when hopping from one park to another.

♦Users can now unequip the skateboard and mascot outfits from their MyPLAYER.
