2K Games has released a fourth patch for its troubled NBA 2K14. It addresses issues with the MyGM and MyCareer modes, among others.

2K community spokeperson Ronnie 2K wrote a blog post detailing the fixes instituted by the patch. Below is the complete list:

  • Addressed an issue where some users were unable to load/play any previously saved files.

  • Addressed an issue where some users were unable to properly negotiate contracts in MyGM.

  • Users are now able to advance to the next round of the playoffs when playing the series deciding game in MyGM.

  • Addressed an issue with Friend invites that was preventing some users from entering into Head-to-Head and Team-Up matchmaking.

  • Corrected a case where the game would exit out after the first change of possession during the Rising Stars challenge in MyCAREER mode.

  • Improved performance in The Park by fixing a number of hitches that would occur during gameplay.

  • Fixed an issue where the title would be unresponsive when booted without being signed into a profile.

  • Fixed an issue where the game would occasionally exit out shortly after boot when there was a large number of content update notifications queued up.

  • Corrected an issue where thumbnails in the MyPLAYER Store and Dressing Room would fail to appear in some cases.

This patch is for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of the game. It is currently out on Xbox One and Ronnie 2K promises that the PS4 patch should be out "shortly."

Our Take:
While it's good that 2K has kept up its efforts to fix an excellent game that was also very broken at launch, it's a shame that all these technical issues are obscuring the game's quality in the eye's of consumers. Let's hope next year's version runs a lot more smoothly when it hits retail.
