NBA 2k21: Update #3 Is Live, What Is New?

The third major update for NBA 2K21 has arrived on October 9 with a lot of changes and improvements for the game. Visual Concepts teams are still using the players’ feedback to make the game more fun and fix its biggest issues. What is in store for us in Update #3?

It is Halloween season and the update has brought Halloween vibes to the game. When visiting the Neighborhood and 2K Beach you will see the Halloween decorations give a spooky vibe to the game. It is mostly cosmetic changes, but still fun. The update will also improve the likeness of more than 60 players in the game from both the NBA and WNBA; users have been complaining for months about the lack of resemblance of some of their favorite players. The update has also changed the default teams for Quick Play; it is now Heat vs Lakers.

Gameplay-wise, Update #3 follow the same trend as its predecessors. It improves several aspects of the game making it less frustrating for the majority of players. The set screen movements are now more realistic for example. The issue that caused the side step pull-up jump shots to be inconsistent is now fixed, while the Shot Aiming system has been slightly modified to prevent exploits. You now need the Hall of Fame Tight Handles badge in order to be able to perform Park dribble moves.

Concerning the game modes, the update affects MyCareer, MyTeam and MyLEAGUE / MyGM. In MyCareer, the update fixes two issues; MyPlayer will now win over new fans when he is supposed to, in addition, the game should no longer freeze when you exit MyCourt after a 2v2 or 3v3 game. In MyTeam the update improves The Exchange system and makes preparations for the $250K tournament and for Season 2 of MyTeam. The game now warns you when you skip silver or gold badge upgrades for Hall of Fame badges.

Finally, in MyLEAGUE / MyGM, the update fixes an issue that made an incorrect logo appear when using the Save Sharing feature to download another person’s save. The game will also no longer hang when you use Play WNBA or NBA Today coming from the WNBA Season mode. Update #3 is not yet available for Nintendo Switch but it is already available for all the other platforms.
