MLB 15 The Show patch fixes serious online bug and other issues

MLB 15 The Show developer Sony San Diego patched the game to version 1.02 this morning, fixing a number of problems including a pesky bug that could cause online games to hang, the studio announced today.

The v1.02 update, available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, is the first post-launch patch for MLB 15. It's led by a fix for an online bug that has become a tool of jerks and sore losers in the three-plus weeks since the game's launch at the end of March. Online games would occasionally hang after a walk, intentional walk, balk or hit by pitch, so players who were losing but didn't want a loss to show up on their online record would purposely try to get MLB 15 to freeze.

Today's patch also addresses some home run detection issues at Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs, where some foul balls down the first-base line were being counted as dingers. Injuries will now occur during Online Franchise games. The home and away teams in ranked Play Now and Diamond Dynasty games will now be assigned randomly. And Sony San Diego also tuned bunts in all games — it was too easy to execute them perfectly before the patch.

For all the details on update 1.02, including information on Andrew McCutchen's new 'do, check out the full patch notes on The Show Nation. You can read our MLB 15 review for our full appraisal of the game, which maintains the series' stellar track record.
