Good news sports fans, as the latest update for NBA 2K21 is here! Not only does it bring the usual wave of improvements and fixes to the game, but it’ll also bring in a few Halloween-themed elements and decorations to the Neighbourhood too. Since trick or treating with the kids seems to be cancelled for 2020, I’ll take as much spooky goodness as I can thanks.
Of course, it’s not all pumpkin and skeletons. Player models have been updated for more than 60 NBA players. There are new NBA Finals to enjoy, and other pre-event goodness.
Furthermore, there’s been a wide range of bug fixes and improvements, all of which are detailed below. Check them out!
