The second NBA LIVE 15 title update is now available on the PlayStation 4, EA has announced. The company said that the update came in light of fan feedback on social media, and it addresses gameplay and presentation issues. While the update introduces over 400 improvements, the most notable ones are listed below:

NEW PLAYER HEAD SCANS

Added 15 scanned player heads including:

Noah Vonleh

Shabazz Napier

Gary Harris

Elfrid Payton

Zach LaVine

Dario Saric

James Young

Nik Stauskas

T.J. Warren

Doug McDermott

CHRISTMAS DAY UNIFORMS

Added uniforms that teams will wear on Christmas Day

LIVE ULTIMATE TEAM

More than 50 bug fixes, as well as an improved interface for LUT Fantasy Challenges. Also added Quicksell Value view to Items, as well as Pack Bundles.

THREE-POINT SHOOTING

Adjustments to three-point shooting percentage and effectiveness, for both CPU and User controlled teams.

CONTESTED LAYUPS

Tuned collisions and contests when driving the lane and going up for a layup for more varied results. Expect more misses if there is heavy contact in the paint.

SIGNATURE JUMPERS AND FREE THROW ROUTINES

Added more authentic shooting animations for players around the league.

SHOT TIMING

We’ve made timing for releasing your shot more forgiving for both online and offline play. Now, the timing feels more natural and predictable.

BALL TRAJECTORY AND PHYSICS

Tuned the shot arc and rim physics for more organic shot types and results. Gone are the days where every made three-pointer is a swish.

DEFENSIVE BITE AND PUMP FAKE ANIMATIONS

Players will recover much quicker and have better overall positioning while defending dribble moves and fakes.

INBOUND PLAYS

Tuned the AI during inbound plays to be more responsive and initiate more movement.

SHOT FEEDBACK METER

Enhanced the feedback system to include your player’s rating for that particular shot type and whether you were open or not.

INVISIBLE BOUNDARIES

Cleaned up some of the invisible boundary issues when moving along the baseline with the ball.

STEAL ATTEMPTS

Tuned stealing to address spamming issues with results in more fouls being called.

END OF GAME AI

Address late game AI issues where players would not react or respond naturally – often causing them to dribble the ball out or not attempt a shot with the clock winding down.

INTENTIONAL FOUL

Adjusted the intentional foul animation to address player warping issues.

The update will also affect rosters, the details for which you can read here.
