HAWK23 has released V35 of the Ultimate Base Roster for NBA 2K12 PC. In addition to updating the current season rosters accurate as of December 23rd 2012, the latest version also includes three new retro season mods, adds more art for both current and retro teams, and makes several minor fixes and tweaks. A rundown of the major updates in V35 is as follows:
- Added the following Season Mods: 1986-1987, 1985-1986, and 1984-1985
- Includes a “UBRV35 Association.ros” roster file which strips out all of the retro teams for those of you who just want the updated roster with flawless Season/Franchise mode. Don’t worry the normal Ultimate Base Roster V34 with all the retros is still there too.
- All players on current teams have real portraits
- More accessories tweaked, and some ratings/sig shots edited for accuracy – courtesy NickQuick
- Added 50 new cyberfaces for players in the 1980’s Season Mods
- Tweaked ages across ALL Season Mods for better accuracy
- 7 new retro courts added/6 new sets of retro jerseys added (most new jerseys/courts from the 1980’s)
- Added the 2012 Christmas jerseys for the 10 teams playing on Christmas
- Fixed rookie/sophomore teams for the 2000 Season Mod
- Tweaked ALL Season Mods for minor updates. We now have 19 full season mods, the ABA mod, and the UBR all compatible without affecting regular NBA2K12 files and they all work in season/association.
- Current NBA Teams Rosters/Rotations up to date as of Sunday December 23rd, 2012

A new official roster containing lineups updated through December 21st 2012 has been pushed through for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions of NBA 2K13. The rosters will come through automatically as long as your computer or console is connected to the Internet, though PC users may also choose to update their game manually using this pack, which contains the latest rosters and online data files.
The latest update also includes the Kobe 8 ID shoes, which carry a +5 Strength boost. Kobe is wearing the shoes by default in the new rosters and they can also be accessed via the NIKEiD menu.
The Wii U version of NBA 2K13 has received the official patch (v1.02) that was made available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game last month.

For a laundry list of all the fixes, please see below.
There is still no word on the patch for the PC version, beyond Ronnie 2K’s speculation that the PC will be receiving a combined update once all the planned updates for the console versions have been released.

IGN have started handing out their end of year awards and have named NBA 2K13 the Xbox 360 Sports Game of the Year. They referred to the game as “the latest in a Jordan-esque dynasty of hoops greatness”, touting the pre-game and mid-game animations, attention to detail in the presentation and the inclusion of the Dream Team as some of the highlights of this year’s game.
Do you agree with the pick? Would you have selected a different Sports Game of the Year, on Xbox 360 or otherwise? Let us know in the comments below and be sure to join in all of the NBA 2K13 discussion here in the NLSC Forum.
