As revealed over on Reddit, a new gameplay patch for NBA Live 19 is currently in the works. According to the developers, the update will include some of the biggest requests and suggestions that have been put forth by the community. Some of those changes include (and I quote):
- Shot contest impact
- Open layups and inside shots missing
- Better balancing of dribble bumps and dribbling
- A new feature to combat ball hogs online
- Some other stuff
It remains to be seen what is meant by “other stuff”, but no doubt we’ll get more information soon, and it’s great to see NBA Live 19 still receiving substantial updates this far into its life cycle. The new patch is slated to drop in early June, right around the tip off of the 2019 NBA Finals. The last update, Patch 1.24, was released back in April.
