Spring is just around the corner and that means life is about to get a whole lot better. Baseball fans across the world relish the return of America’s great pastime along with the return of peanuts, Yasiel Puig, Matt Vasgersian, and of course, MLB 15: The Show.
Major League Baseball’s biggest stars will descend on Target Field in Minneapolis, MN next week for the 2014 All-Star Game. With the 85th Midsummer Classic around the corner, we felt it was only right to try and predict the outcome of tomorrow night’s game using the highest rated and most realistic baseball simulation available, MLB 14 The Show for PS4. Here’s a look at some of the video highlights from the game, courtesy of The Show.
The Dodgers and the Giants have the longest standing rivalry in baseball. Over 2,300 matchups; only 22 wins separating the two teams. In the tradition of this rivalry, MLB 14 The Show — in partnership with IGN — would like to start a new one… Puig vs. Pence. On Monday, April 14th at 11:00 AM Pacific, San Francisco Giants Right Fielder Hunter Pence and Los Angeles Dodgers Right Fielder Yasiel Puig will face off in MLB 14 The Show for PS4.
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 for an in depth look.
We know anticipation is high, especially given we’re making our next-gen debut this season, and this week we were able to share a glimpse of what we’ve been working on for the past 10 months. Here’s a look at some of the things we’ve got planned for MLB 14 The Show.
Hitting is such an important aspect in baseball, and it’s an area we continually strive to make as realistic as possible. Last year we introduced our True Ball Physics engine to the franchise for ultra-realistic ball physics. This year we’ve done even more work to really make this area of the game as dynamic as possible with true to life outcomes. Take a look at what we’ve done to make hitting in MLB ’13 The Show more accessible to everyone.
We really want to make hitting more streamlined for players. Beginner mode allows people who have never played The Show — or have struggled with it — to learn the fundamentals of hitting. It’s meant to teach you the basics of Plate Discipline, Pitch Recognition and Timing.
It may only be the first week of January, but to us at San Diego Studios that means we are just two months away from bringing you the latest installment of the number-one selling and rated Major League Baseball video game franchise, MLB 13 The Show. We’ve been hard at work improving the best baseball video game on the market and we want all of you to check out our first trailer.
We can’t wait to show you more in the upcoming months. But, before we do, don’t forget to vote for one of these seven ballplayers to be on the cover of MLB 13 The Show next week by clicking here.
