NBA 2K17 Patch 1.03 has rolled out on the PS4 and PC versions of the game, while those rocking to it on the Xbox One will have to wait for a little while longer.
Have you been having plenty of fun with NBA 2K17 ever since it was released late last month? Hardly half a month since its release, the game has already received a patch update, which means that whatever noticeable major glitches and bugs ought to have been fixed. Those who are rocking to the Sony PS4 and PC versions of NBA 2K17 would find patch 1.03 available at their disposal, although those who parade their sporting ability on the Xbox One’s virtual court will need to wait a little while longer until Team 2K Games release patch 1.03 for that platform.
No doubt the new NBA 2K17 patch 1.03 will bring with it changes to the game, some more significant and noticeable than the others. This patch was released after a fair number of complaints from NBA 2K17 gamers who have placed a pre-order of the title earlier on. Basically, the 1992 Dream Team which was originally unplayable can now be accessed, letting you relive the moments of that legendary batch of court kings right smack in the middle of your living room.
Apat from that, the new patch 1.03 will also ensure that rules and violations of the Euroleague in NBA 2K17 will be somewhat different from those found in the NBA. This patch will pre-set the rules and mechanics of the Euroleague automatically whenever the Euroleague mode is selected, so you might want to make some changes to your gaming strategy when dealing with opposing teams from across the pond.
Not only that, players should also notice that the five-second closely guarded rule will only result in a penalty for players who actually hold the ball, as opposed to those who are dribbling it around.
Of course, the above are the more notable mentions, but you can be sure that the NBA 2K17 patch 1.03 update will also be accompanied by its fair share of fixes and squashed bugs along the way. For instance, the proper controls for "Orange Juice" has been fixed, while the Ankle Breaker badge is also no longer buggy, so you need not have the coach being his overbearing self should your player or players skip a game because of injuries -- it is common sense in real life, so it is nice to see that a similar level of logic is applied in the virtual world to your team of digital players, too.
Not only that, those who love to keep in touch with your teammates in a live co-operative match will be pleased as punch to know that voice chat in the Pro-Am Team Arena is now enabled. This opens the doors for players to hold a conversation and communicate with one another while playing the game. The patch will also affect the Custom Wall progress in a good way, where it will continue to be shown despite the players changing the basket types in the Pro-am Team Arena. Do take note that the turbo meter will now come with flashing red lights should the player start to feel exhausted.
The NBA 2K17 patch 1.03 is a rather hefty download at 7.1GB, so make sure that your PC or PS4 has an adequate amount of space before downloading it.
