A new NBA 2K18 update has hit Xbox One, and it improves the stability of the basketball title’s MyCareer mode. Full patch notes aren’t currently available, so we don’t know what other tweaks it brings. We’ll update the post once we know if the update is also hitting PlayStation 4.
Check out the official announcement below:

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:
You’ll also likely feel gross after being tempted to purchase virtual currency for the 50th time. Sure, it’s all optional, but when nearly everything is tied to it, and progression grinds to a halt, it stops being simply an”easier” way to progress. Instead, it’s the preferred method, and one that 2K is expecting players to use if they’re serious about playing. It’s a really damning state of the industry that I’m feeling pushed away from a game that I really enjoy playing due to a poorly executed business model.
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.
