Hello, Ramone Russell here. I’m the Game Designer and Community Specialist on MLB The Show.
One of the most common pieces of feedback we get each year from our fans is that they’d like to play complete games faster. That’s why we’re excited to bring two new options into MLB 14 that allow for you to experience The Show without having to make as big of a time commitment as in the past: Quick Counts and Player Lock. Watch the video below for an in depth look.
- Quick Counts and Player Lock are game options; they aren’t mandatory.
- Quick Counts and Player Lock are available in most game modes.
- Player lock will allow you to play a full game in as little as 10 minutes.
- With Quick Counts on, you will cut your game completion times in half if used in conjunction with the Fast Play presentation setting. Games can now be completed in as little as 30 minutes.
- Realistic stats in Quick Counts have not been compromised. However, you may see a slight increase in strike outs and walks.
- To customize your Player Lock experience, visit the Options page and access the RTTS Options.
- Player Lock fielding uses fielder-perspective controls, so all bases are mapped opposite of non-Player Lock games (i.e. Square = First, X = Second, Circle = Third, Triangle = Home)
