WWE 2K17 received an extensive title update earlier today, and an exhaustive list of patch notes to go with it. However, a handful of undocumented changes the patch has brought to the game, for better and worse, have got users talking the most.
Firstly, the 20-per-day community creations download limit, which has been imposed on users for the past several years in order to reduce 2K server strain, has seemingly been relaxed to 50; allowing players who lost their saved data due to one of the pre-patch bugs to start restoring their created superstars, belts and arenas at a faster rate than before.
Another minor undocumented change relaxes created superstar height restrictions, allowing users to create male grapplers as short as 5’6″, and females as tall as 6’8″.
On a more sour note, a number of users have taken to the game’s official forums and social media channels to complain that custom logos used on their created superstars have either changed positioning or been deleted entirely following the update. While WWE 2K17 gives users the option to update their saved game data following the installation of the patch, this doesn’t seem to have entirely alleviated the problem; with many reporting that their downloaded wrestlers have been stripped entirely of their custom logos even after accepting the update.
Finally, the official patch notes confirmed that support for the upcoming Legends DLC pack has been added to the game ahead of its upcoming release. What wasn’t mentioned, however, is that aspects of the pack will be available to users regardless of whether they purchase it or not. This evening, users have noticed that the attires for the superstars included in this add-on, including Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake, Eddie Guerrero, Greg “The Hammer” Valentine, Sycho Sid and Tatanka are now all available to use in the game’s create-a-superstar mode, regardless of whether they own WWE 2K17’s season pass or not.
