The patch notes for 1.03, which can be seen below (via Eurogamer), never use the words "bugs" or "fixes." However, they do note that "gameplay mechanics" have been adjusted. In addition, textures for "many" of the game's characters "have been updated."

Check out the complete Pro Skater 5 1.03 PS4 patch notes below. Presumably, the Xbox One is also getting this patch. The game's Xbox 360 and PS3 versions have been delayed indefinitely.

Pro Skater 5's release in September was not what Activision would have wanted. The game was blasted by critics across the board for its glitches and other issues. GameSpot's Pro Skater 5 review scored it a 3/10. Days after launch, Activision acknowledged the problems and said it hopes to fix them.
