A lot has just changed in the world of NBA 2K21, with a wave of new players ready to download and start playing.
Epic Games has just released the latest basketball game from the popular 2K franchise for free as part of a new offering.
This is only available for PC gamers, but it also means more gamers are trying it for the first time.
And that wasn’t the only big change announced today, with 2K also choosing to release patch 1.11.
NBA 2K21 update 1.11 is currently only available on PS4 and Xbox One consoles, but will soon be rolled out to other platforms.
And even though 2K only listed a few changes in the official patch notes, it’s still worth taking a look.
As the development team said, “Things are heating up on the court, with this latest update bringing the summer vibes back to 2K Beach. We’ve also been working on updating player likeness, and with the recent start of the WNBA season, we’ve updated some of the uniforms and floors.
“Many other fixes have been included to improve the overall NBA 2K21 experience in all game modes.”
The full list of NBA 2K21 1.11 patch notes can be found below:
- 2K Beach updated with a summer theme
- Updated another set of player likeness for current NBA players.
