2K have released a new patch for the PC version of NBA 2K16 which feature fixes specific to the platform as well as previous console fixes.

A patch has been made available for NBA 2K16, and the notes have revealed a big list of fixes. Featuring some fixes specific to the PC version, it also includes some issues that were fixed for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

  • Addressed an issue on the main menu where the title would freeze for a period of time before proceeding to the selected action (e.g. loading a MyCAREER save).
  • Players will no longer slide/skate when pressing the block button during an inbound state. It was funny while it lasted.
  • Tuned crowd excitement and intensity on made buzzer beaters.
  • Resolved a case where certain players (e.g. Kristaps Porzingis) would have their hairstyle change slightly when zooming in the camera very close in replay.
