There have been very few changes to the gameplay side, which isn’t a surprise considering the developers don’t want to focus on that part unless necessary for a few months. The update tightens the perimeter defensive coverage checks to reduce “ghost contests” players were experiencing in-game. The window size of open meter dunks has also been increased.

As for the MyCareer mode, the “RISE-specific Heat Check Booster” has been adjusted to activate after 3 made shots in a row, which was previously 5. A bug that caused an indefinite hang when loading a MyCareer save has been fixed. Another issue that prevented players from receiving rewards upon completing quests, including Rebirth and Badge Perks, has been addressed.

When attending practice after the final game of the NBA season, a loophole occurred that caused issues getting through the offseason, which should be fixed after this update. Aside from that, adjustments have been made to ensure that Flashback games can be played at any time during the NBA season. These and the update released nearly a week ago have significantly improved certain parts of NBA 2K24.

The producer at 2k Sports announced several changes to the highly criticized badge system, which have been well-received by most of the community. Not only that, but the developers seem to be planning consistent updates to improve the state of the game. The patch notes for v1.3 came with a developer note saying that there will be an all-encompassing patch released in early-mid October, which will span the entirety of the game.
