It’s the bottom of the ninth and we’re ready to knock it out of the park… by announcing that MLB The Show 16 will launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 consoles on 29th March, 2016!
Experience baseball’s most epic moments like never before with ShowTime. ShowTime, offers gamers a powerful new tool to help them excel in those big baseball moments. You’ll be able to slow down critical moments for maximum control and make diving plays, react at the hot corner, and step up for a clutch at bat with finer and more focused control.
For a glimpse of ShowTime, along with a couple of other new features take a look at the trailer from PSX 2015.
That’s not all we’ve got for you! The Road to the Show is back and better than ever – we’ve made it more personalised and rewarding in this year’s game!
A revamped training system gives you the chance to unlock Gameplay Perks as you work your way through Road To The Show (PS4 only). It’s also a more streamlined Road To the Show experience, as a new paradigm for base-running and fielding opportunities will maximise the time you spend in situations that matter. For the first time ever in the MLB The Show franchise, you can now also play an entire series of Road To The Show games without ever having to navigate the main menu between games.
As you may have already seen in the announcement in the US, this year’s cover athlete is the one and only… Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays! 2015 was a monster year for Josh, winning the American League MVP along with the MLB Players Association’s Player of the Year award and the AL Outstanding Player award. He also set a new record for most votes ever received for an All Star Game performance…so he really is something special, and we’re excited to have such a dynamic player represent The Show in 2016.
There’s a lot to be excited about in this year’s MLB The Show 16 and we’re counting the days until 29th March! In the meantime we’ll be sending out news and updates on The Show Nation and through our Twitter and Facebook accounts all year, so make sure to follow us to join the conversation.
