NBA Live 14's second patch will start to deliver on dev's promises
With NBA Live 14's second patch, which could arrive as early as Feb. 10, developer EA Tiburon will start to deliver on its promises about improving the game.
Shortly after NBA Live 14's debut as a launch title on PS4 and Xbox One, executive producer Sean O'Brien addressed the game's poor reception in an open letter posted to the NBA Live website. O'Brien acknowledged that the team at developer EA Tiburon hadn't accomplished what they'd set out to achieve.
One of the main pieces of the patch addresses a notable complaint from fans: the lack of a dedicated tutorial. The patch adds a mode called Shootaround that lets players take any NBA athlete onto a practice court so users can familiarize themselves withNBA Live 14's controls.
"Don't think that we're doing all this work at the expense of the next NBA Live," said O'Brien. "Instead, we're building for next year's title and including everything we can in the current game right now to improve the experience for our loyal fans."
