What We Expect In MLB The Show 21



Game Informer. ©. April 6, 2021.

MLB The Show 21” releases on April 20th for “PS4 (PlayStation 4),” “PS5 (PlayStation 5),” “Xbox One,” Xbox Series X,” and “Xbox Series S.” 


The video game is right around the corner where the series is going multi-platform on “PS4 (PlayStation 4)” and “Xbox” platforms. The realism from the players and stadiums are set to keep many fans in awe while others can only expect such improved details (like lighting). There are over 100 new animations added to the game. 

The gameplay styles are “Casual” for beginners, “Simulation” for difficulty, and “Competitive,” which is a more advanced edition. The “Competitive” mode is a new standard for the online player. 

Choose who you want to dominate the field with. Maybe you may choose Mike Trout from the Los Angeles Angels, young and old Ernie Banks, or (number ‘47’ pitcher from the Atlanta Braves), Tom Glavine. Either way it goes, there are over 150 legends to choose from, captured in 4K.

Choose your own pitching styles, upgrade your stats, and keep your eyes on the gam with eye-hand coordination. The “Stadium Creator” allows you to pick between 30 different base stadiums. Maybe you would prefer to design everything from the “Blank Canvas” stadium. 

After you select a base stadium, there is the choice between “Easy Editor” or “Pro Editor.” You get full control of the park with “Pro Editor,” so maybe that is your preference. Edit the scenery (inside and outside of the stadium and select from a list of 1,000 props to put in the park. Well, at night, you cannot play in these parks. Soon, playing in these parks will be available. 

Another feature “MLB The Show Series” fans are excited about is the “Sounds of the Show,” where you can import your own songs to use for player walk up music, stadium sound effects, etc. Just get creative with the music and put on “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred. 

The good news is that while your players are about to swing the bat, a woodpecker will not be pecking it (as a distraction). That may not be me giving hilariously odd ideas away. Well, it would be odd for every mess up, an animal came out of the blue to inflict harm.
