NBA 2K22 Update 1.8 Live, Patch Notes Revealed

2K Sports and Visual Concepts have today pushed out a new update for NBA 2K22 across both last-gen and current-gen platforms. In the present, this patch brings about a vast number of changes to the ever-popular basketball sim, but what this update is really laying the groundwork for is Season 3 of NBA 2K22, which starts later this week.

Across all platforms, this new NBA 2K22 update, which is version 1.8, brings about a number of lingering tweaks and fixes to the overall game. Visual Concepts has also pushed out some minor gameplay changes as well, specifically when it comes to how dribbling works.

As mentioned, though, the real reason for this update is to pave the way for Season 3 of NBA 2K22. Kicking off this Friday, December 3, Season 3, which is called “Iced Out”, will add a number of new features to all modes within the game. The season will also primarily center around Damian Lillard and “his ability to be unfazed by any situation”.
