NBA 2K20 hasn’t gotten off the best of starts. Following a review bomb across the likes of Steam before it even launched, post-launch sentiment surrounding microtransactions, glitches and bugs, and load times has driven much of the discussion around the game.
Thankfully, 2K Sports is well up to speed on what needs to be addressed in-game, and Patch 1.02 is the first albeit small update to the game.
Now rolled out across PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch (in the coming days), Patch 1.02 appears to focus on player speed, whilst also implementing a slight stamina buff.
Unfortunately, no patch notes have been posted, but this information comes by way of Mike Wang, NBA 2K20 gameplay director, on Twitter.
Interestingly, the update led to some not-so-intended consequences.
“The park speeds were boosted a bit further than desired and will be toned down asap. Apologies,” Wang said.
Additionally, a bug impacting hop steps has also been addressed.
“If you’re getting unwanted hop steps when trying to dunk, you need to hold the RS diagonally up right/left (2 or 10 o’clock).
“Don’t push directly left or right or it’ll feel random.”
So how big is this seemingly small update? It clocks in at around 7GB.
