General

  • The “Hoops” 2v2 mode has been added as an unranked playlist, and is also available in Private Matches and Exhibition mode at any team size.
  • Exhibition and Private Match now have a “Game Mode” selector. The mode you select determines which maps you can choose – for instance, “Hoops” can only be played on the “Dunk House” map.
  • During Overtime, the in-game UI clock now counts upwards to indicate how long the overtime has lasted.
  • New “Cosmic” Arena has been added to the “Rocket Labs” playlist
  • After scoring in Free Play, there will no longer be a 3/2/1 countdown.
  • “Dunks” stats has been added with this DLC.
    • When a player scores a basket/goal with any NBA flag equipped, it will increase your stat on that NBA flag.

UI/UX

  • Players can now trigger an automatic replay save mid-game, so they don’t have to wait until the match concludes and remember to save it then.
    • Auto-Save is triggered by holding the activation button during gameplay. When triggered, the save will be queued and a message will appear in the chatbox indicating the action. A replay tick mark is automatically added to the replay at the timestamp the player triggered the autosave.
  • Players can now manually name (and rename) replays.
    • Select “Save Replay” at the end of game and the user can now provide a custom name.
    • Users can also rename replays in the frontend.
      • Mouse/Keyboard – A pencil icon appears when mousing over a replay. Clicking the Pencil brings up the rename dialog.
      • Controller – Pressing Triangle button on the Replay menu brings up the rename dialog.

General

  • Spectators will no longer see Camera Shake in Player View if the option is disabled
  • Fixed a rare issue that would allow the ball to exit the arena
