NBA 2K18 update 1.03 has been released across PS4, Xbox One and PC, and it fixes a few preliminary bugs with the game’s various modes. MyCareer attribute upgrades display a few more details, but don’t expect any major changes to microtransactions. Read the official patch notes below.

  • Fixed a case where game framerate would drop for the remainder of the game following a called timeout.
  • Users are now able to view the individual attributes and their values when upgrading their players in MyCAREER.
  • 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).
  • Generated prospects in future seasons of MyLEAGUE/MyGM will now always have heights appropriate for their position (new save required).
  • Free agents 32 years or older will no longer pass up big money offers to sign for the MLE in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.
  • Users will no longer display negative badge progress following an exceptional performance in MyCAREER. For those currently experiencing this, continue playing and your tally will be incremented towards your next bonus.
  • Fixed a hang that could occur when the user was scrolling down the list of available shirts in the T-Shirt Kiosk.
  • Improved framerate in the court area of the Playground when games are being played on most/all of the courts.
  • Addressed a hang that could occur when bringing up the squad menu in a completely full Neighborhood.
  • Fixed a soft hang in Live Practice where the ball would not get picked up when using the ball machine.
  • Fixed an issue where the camera would always point to the middle of the court if the user had the Auto Flip option enabled while in the broadcast camera(s).
  • (Switch) Improved framerate/audio syncing during tunnel/locker room scenes in MyCAREER.
  • (Switch) Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Local Play from commencing when there were four participants.

NOTE: All patch fixes will work in your existing game mode saves unless noted otherwise.

The listed Switch update doesn’t appear to be live yet, but the developers note that the changes will be available “soon.”

While these adjustments are appreciated, update 1.03 does not officially address any of the game’s major issues, like lost MyPlayers and the controversial microtransactions across most modes. While the previous update intended to resolve the former issue, there are still plenty of online reports of lost progress. It’s possible the 2K team has reevaluated the problem, but there’s no mention of it here.

As for microtransactions, community members and reporters alike are waiting with bated breath to see how 2K plans to rework one of the most criticized gaming purchase schemes to date. The cost of in-game haircuts has been reduced significantly, but that only amounts to one small fix for the much larger systems in play.

NBA 2K18 is available now on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Switch and PC.
