NBA 2K15 Patch Attempts To Fix MyPark And Other Online Functions

by Mike Futter on Oct 27, 2014 at 12:59 PM

2K Sports recently rolled out a patch for NBA 2K15 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The purpose of the update is, in part, to fix the problematic MyPark and other online modes plagued with server issues.

We noted the online problems in our review of NBA 2K15, mentioning that they are a carry-over from last year’s version. The update also fixes problems with the free agency period, Doris Burke’s rapid hustle to an on-court interview, and a problem with re-watching 2KTV episodes.

Here’s the entire list of fixes included in the new update:

  • Made a number of stability fixes to improve the quality of the MyPARK experience, and online as a whole.
  • Improvements have been made to the face scanning experience.  Please ensure you have plenty of balanced lighting (natural light is best) for best results.
  • The correct animation will now be shown in Edit Player when scrolling through the available list of animations.
  • Fixed a rare hang that would occur when changing the in-game language from the Options menu.
  • Fixed an issue where the user who invited would sometimes hang at the conclusion of a playoff game in Online Leagues.
  • Addressed an issue in MyGM/MyLEAGUE where, in certain cases, the game would not allow the user to exceed 13 players during the free agency period of the offseason.
  • Fixed a rare occurrence where Doris Burke would warp off the screen prior to an on-court interview with a player/coach.
  • Addressed a number of locations where voice chat icons and Online IDs were not properly displayed during the online experience (PS4).
  • Users are now able to re-watch 2KTV episodes that have already been watched to completion. 

Let us know if you find the online experience to be improved after this patch. For more on NBA 2K15, check out our review.

Our Take
Publishers need to get their server issues under control. As the online components of games become more important and more deeply integrated, failure in these features impacts more of the experience. There are some developer/publisher combinations getting it right, but these problems are still all too common.
