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