Sometimes a news day is just NBA 2K21. On top of news about NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles, Visual Concepts rolled out a 28 GB patch this morning.

In today’s Patch Update 3, the NBA 2K neighborhood became a little bit… scary. Which is nice, since it’ll be much safer celebrating Halloween in the Neighborhood than in my real life neighborhood. The NBA 2K team continues to improve player likenesses, this time including Steph Curry. You can find the full details below.
