NBA 2K20 Patch 1.06 Addresses Issues in Neighborhood

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.06

Patch 1.06 has come through for NBA 2K20. The patch is currently available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, and should hopefully be out on PC soon. As always, the update should download automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection. If you do encounter any difficulties, try restarting your console (or Steam client once the PC patch has been released).

The patch primarily addresses technical issues with The Neighborhood in MyCAREER, along with some other online glitches. The official patch notes are as follows:

  • Fixes incorrect MyPLAYERs loading when joining friends in The Neighborhood
  • Fixes users getting disconnected during timeouts in some online game modes
  • Fixes hanging when dismissing the phone in The Neighborhood
  • Many more fixes

Among the “many more fixes” are resolutions to blue screen errors on PS4, loading into MyCAREER with the wrong build, and other random crashes. Information on NBA 2K20 Patch 1.06 has been added to the game’s update history here in our Wiki. Feel free to share your impressions of the latest update in the comments section below, as well as join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum. I’ll update this bulletin when PC patch is out.

UPDATE: As of October 16th, the PC patch is now available.

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.05 Addresses Gameplay, Technical Issues

NBA 2K20 Patch 1.05

Patch 1.05 is now available for NBA 2K20. It will come through automatically for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions, as long as you have an active Internet connection. If you run into any issues, try restarting your console or Steam client, or checking for the update manually.

It’s a considerable update, weighing in at 626.8 MB on PC, 20.6 GB on PS4, and 35.8 GB on XB1. Unfortunately the patch notes aren’t very detailed, filing most of the changes under the heading of “Many, many more fixes included to improve the overall experience of NBA 2K20”. However, Mike Wang has provided some additional insights on Twitter regarding changes to the gameplay. In addition to addressing disconnection issues, Patch 1.05 for NBA 2K20 adjusts “full white” releases, buffs the Pick Dodger Badge, fixes baseline dunks that weren’t triggering properly, and widens the speed gap.

You can check out the official patch notes below, along with Beluba’s Tweets. I’ve also added that information to the update history for NBA 2K20 over in our Wiki. Feel free to share your thoughts on the update in the comments below, as well as join in the discussion here in the Forum.

Monday Tip-Off: Always Online Means Servers, Too

MyTEAM Servers Down for Maintenance (NBA 2K19)

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games. This week, I’m tipping things off with a few thoughts on the perpetual problems with NBA 2K’s servers.

There’s an Australian idiom that goes “mad as a cut snake“. It can either mean very angry, or crazy and eccentric; in other words, playing off the two main definitions of “mad”. On this occasion, when I talk about being mad as a cut snake, I’m using it in the “angry” context and in reference to NBA 2K. Last week, I expressed my disgust on Twitter after issues with the MyTEAM servers caused me to waste a Locker Code following a disconnection. I usually prefer to keep my commentary constructive but sometimes, you just have to let off steam.

Look, I can keep things in perspective here. At the end of the day, basketball video games are just that: games. If the worst thing that happens to you in any given week is missing out on some free content in a basketball game, it’s been a pretty good week. Of course, this is a site dedicated to basketball gaming, so those are the matters that we concern ourselves with around these parts. As far as the issues that rank among the most concerning, online stability is undoubtedly up there. For all of the great things that NBA 2K has done with innovative modes and connected experiences, problems with the games’ servers continue to be a major letdown.
