It seems that 2K Sports have heard gamer sentiments about their latest professional wrestling sim. WWE 2K17 Patch 1.02 is now out, aiming to address the numerous issues that plagued the game since its release.
The game was just released earlier this month, on Oct. 11 to be exact. It was created by game developers Yuke’s and Visual Concepts, with 2K publishing it for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Not long after the game came out, it has become apparent that a patch is desperately needed, and so WWE 2K17 Patch 1.02 was developed.
The initial release of the game have been littered with bugs, much to fans’ dismay; those that paid good money to see their favorite wrestling superstars duke it out on the ring. Bugs ranged from minor, which affected gameplay and may cause mild inconvenience, up to the very drastic and game-breaking. Some players even experienced their save files being wiped out completely.
The patch also reportedly fixes frame rate issues that some players experience. The drop in FPS was really apparent when, for example, a wrestler’s entrance sequence triggers or when a character tries to execute a pin on another character while near the announce table.
While there are no big issues with online play in particular, applying the patch was also said to offer improved online stability. This, among various atmospheric fixes, like the individual wrestlers’ entrance and victory animations and inappropriate crowd reaction, were included in the patch.
The patch release has already been approved by Sony and Microsoft, and it has been rolled out to owners of the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One gaming consoles. Those interested in the full changelog is advised to visit the official 2K forums for the full patch notes regarding WWE 2K17 Patch 1.02.
The next patch has been approved and is scheduled to launch tomorrow morning (U.S. Pacific Time). Stay tuned for patch notes at that time.
