NBA 2K18 update 1.03

Update: An additional patch note from Ronnie 2K has come in:


Exciting news for basketball fans, as NBA 2K18 update 1.03 is scheduled to drop later today. The news was confirmed by the face of 2K’s basketball sim, Ronnie 2K, on Twitter. “NBA 2K18 Patch 3 will drop on PS4/XB1 this afternoon with notes,” wrote Ronnie 2K.

Read the full patch notes below:

– Fixed a case where game framerate would drop for the remainder of the game following a called timeout.
– Gray indicators have been added underneath the feet of your teammates in the Playground; it is now much quicker and easier to discern your teammates from your opponents.
– Global settings/options will no longer reset to default after entering a MyTEAM game.
– Users will no longer lose their facial hair when re-scanning their face.
– Addressed a case where Draft-and-Stash players in MyLEAGUE/MyGM would be signed to a $0 contract, while simultaneously being duplicated in the upcoming rookie draft (new save required).

– Improved framerate in the court area of the Playground when games are being played on most/all of the courts.

– (Switch) Improved framerate/audio syncing during tunnel/locker room scenes in MyCAREER.

For more on the basketball title, check out our NBA 2K18 review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about the game:

Rarely have I had as many conflicting feelings about a game as much as I do with NBA 2K18. So much about the basketball sim is top-notch, but there are also so many elements that make me want to put it down and never touch it again. From gross business decisions that get in the way of enjoying modes to adding so many elements that get in the way of simply enjoying the on-court action, it winds up being its own worst enemy. Those who just want a solid basketball game to play exhibition matches won’t find anything better, but the rest of the package winds up stepping on its own feet all too often.

NBA 2K18 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
