    With less than two months until launch on March 27, we’re excited to finally give you a first look at MLB The Show 18 gameplay.

    The moment a great many devout baseball fans have been waiting for is finally here: Babe Ruth. He is arguably the greatest player ever and is one of the new Legends coming to MLB The Show 18. He’s not alone; did you catch any of the other new Legends we teased in the trailer?

    This year we’re bringing back Road to The Show, Diamond Dynasty, Battle Royale, Conquest, and Franchise Mode, and will have a major gameplay engine tune-up among other features.

    Baseball is a game of details. At its core there’s pitching, hitting, catching, throwing, and tagging. All of those areas of the game have received major development resources this year. Below are a few changes we’ve revealed in our trailer:
    • Expansion of Road to the Show
    • Dynamic crowds like Judge’s Chambers
    • New unique home run celebrations
    • Revamped hitting engine with improved physics
    • Rewritten player tagging system
    • Over 1,000 new gameplay animations
    • More legends

    Some of these changes we get the most excited about are the unflashy ones under the hood, the ones that seem like little adjustments but can make huge strides in terms of authenticity.

    We’ve got a lot more to discuss — updates to major modes and a new feature the community’s been demanding for years — and over the next 60 days, we’ll tell you all you need to know. Can you spot all the feature teases in the trailer?

    2018 Twitch and GameStop Monday’s Schedule

    One of the most fulfilling moments in game development is when we get to show our faithful fans what we’ve been working on during the offseason. Our goal is to make each year’s game the best baseball video game on the market. Over the last three years, we’ve started to tease our work-in-progress updates in a series of video blogs and Twitch live streams.

    We have a handful of streams planned before The Show 18 releases on March 23 for the First Pitch Weekend. The 2018 video blog and Twitch live stream schedule can be viewed below. All dates and stream topics are tentative and are subject to change at a moment’s notice. Also, please note all of our live streams start at 2 PM Pacific!
