We are going BACKWARDS! We've just completed the missing 2014 PBA Governors' Cup roster from Medevenx' hiatus back in 2014 where he was not able to make the update for the PBA roster. Now it's back and is finally made with the same quality as the current PBA rosters. Not only that, we have decided to go back to the 2012-2013 PBA season! Only the 2012-2013 PBA Philippine Cup is available right now, but we will feature the 2013 PBA Commissioner's Cup & Governors' Cup in the next updates.
The 2012-2013 PBA season has an accurate schedule, which however, is placed in 2013-2014 instead because NBA 2K14 cannot read schedules that occur before the 2013-2014 season. The staff, jerseys, courts, are all accurate for the 2012-2013 PBA season.
Updated Rosters & Free Agent Vaults
We add a new feature to PBA 2K, the Free Agent Vault, which is only implemented in the 2015-2016 PBA season rosters. We've also partially updated the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup rosters, adding imports to teams which we can already update now without having to do too much work since we want to wait for the final list of imports in July. We also update the Smart Araneta Coliseum for 2016, with the new Smart logo. TNT also has a new logo, which is implemented in their jerseys as well as the logos, scoreboard logos, and bootup. The Smart Araneta Coliseum from 2012 to 2014 also makes a return.
For the 2012-2013 PBA rosters, we move the 2013-2014 PBA rookies back to their college teams without editing the college teams to their actual lineup during that season. That means the college teams maintain their 2013-2014 season rosters, while having the 2012-2013 seniors as part of the team.
The Gilas 4.0 lineup has been revealed and updated in all of the PBA 2K rosters that have them (2014-2015 season rosters & 2015-2016 season rosters since they both have the same roster format). The new Gilas Pilipinas jerseys have now also been added. The roster keeps the 16-man lineup that they had before finalizing which includes the final 12, Moala Tautuaa, Kiefer Ravena, Calvin Abueva, and L.A. Tenorio.
Over 80 Jerseys!
Over 80 jerseys have been made for the new PBA 2K update which are all by Medevenx. Not only are practice jerseys made for the 2015-2016 PBA season, but missing jerseys for the PBA teams from 2013-2016 were all completed. The new Rain or Shine jerseys also make an appearance. The Tropang TNT also have their new fictional jerseys in preparation for the 2016 PBA Governors' Cup. Only three NCAA teams have their NCAA Season 91 jerseys updated so far, the Mapua Cardinals, Arellano Chiefs, and EAC Generals. Because of the growing population of the jerseys, as well as the pursuit of retro seasons for PBA 2K, we decided to remove the retro PBA jerseys in favor of accurate, per-conference PBA jerseys.
Not only are there 80+ new jerseys, but there are 45 new cyberfaces for PBA 2K as well! Year-specific cyberfaces for the retro seasons such as 2012-2014 Jay Washington, Jared Dillinger, Alex Cabagnot, and even a bald Marcio Lassiter for the 2011 Smart Gilas Pilipinas roster is available. New updates such as long-haired Romeo, Chris Newsome, etc. are available as well.
All of the new and old logos have already been implemented in the re-uploaded PBA 2K Logos & Scoreboards, as well as the PBA 2K Optional Files. The Logos & Scoreboards have the new TNT logos, and all of the old PBA team logos as well. The Optional Files have updated bootups featuring the new logos. We have new TNT logos, a flat Barangay Ginebra logo (no longer shiny), and all of the retro team logos.
Incoming July Update
While we promised to have updated NCAA Season 91 jerseys for PBA 2K v12.0, we did not foresee the workload ahead of us in the jersey department which made only 3 out of 10 NCAA teams have updated NCAA Season 91 jerseys. NCAA Season 92 has already caught up to us and while the team is unsure whether or not to update both the UAAP & NCAA rosters for future updates, we will first make sure to have updated NCAA Season 91 jerseys in the update for PBA 2K in July. Not only that, we will also feature the 2013 PBA Commissioner's Cup & Governors' Cup rosters, completing the 2012-2013 PBA season. We will add two new Import Vaults, and the finalized 2016 PBA Governors' Cup roster.
If you didn't notice, we changed the "PBA 2K14" logo to "PBA 2K" now, read all about it here!Rename to PBA 2K
To download the new update for PBA 2K v12.0, be sure to download the newest PBA 2K Appdata Files and PBA 2K Main Directory Files v12.0. Yes, we will start naming the Main Directory Files per version now.
