The next iteration of the Major League Baseball videogame has been officially confirmed by Sony. MLB 14: The Show is being developed by Sony Computer Entertainment San Diego Studio and will come out in the second quarter of 2014.
Though it is no breaking news that the next version of the game is in development at San Diego Studios, it sure is big news that the game will be released to all three Consoles of Sony i.e. PlayStation 3, Playstation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The platforms were confirmed through a post on the US PlayStation Blog yesterday.
A detailed post on the blog gives away some screenshots from the work in progress for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, the latter taking a boisterous stance.
The cover athlete was chosen last year through a fan voting system which ended picking up Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates as the superstar to grace the cover of MLB 14: The Show.
Currently the game is available for preordering at Gamestop. For a price of $19.99 you will get Universal in-game Currency along with the game upon release.
In the MLB 14 you will be able to carry your saves from the previous games you have played to the MLB 14: The Show and onwards in the future. This means your Seasons, Franchises, and Road To The Show players are now secure.
The post goes on “we’ve created an all-new Quick Counts option, which utilizes generated pitch counts allowing gamers to play through full games faster than ever.” In practicality, this will mean that “users will now be able to play a full 9 inning game in less than 30 minutes.”
Some of the additional features that have been confirmed through the announcement post include “a new advancement system, new intuitive player creation process, and all new pre-draft prospect showcase.”
