The team released yet another update on Friday, Patch 1.1.2 for Steam and PS4. It adds some new dunks, a loading screen to explain the new shot meter, and changed various challenge requirements, among other details.

  • Adjusted: The steal action has been re-balanced based on your feedback to better fit the intended gameplay. Overall, succeeding with a steal action became harder.
