The baseball season is long and gruelling and there ain’t no one got time to play through that on the PlayStation 4 – but fortunately Sony San Diego has a solution. MLB The Show 19 will feature a new mode named March to October, which will enable you to play the key moments in your chosen team’s campaign for World Series glory.
“As you advance through the season, unique narrative commentary content will progressively and dynamically unfold the essential story of your chosen MLB club’s campaign,” senior narrative game designer John Livingston wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “The outcomes of the games you play will swing a ‘team momentum’ factor, influencing how your team performs between each played episode and the next.”
Playing through the episodes will unlock up to 100 unique, team-themed awards, with higher difficulties rewarded bigger spoils. This sounds like a smart way of almost transforming the traditional Seasons mode into more of a story-driven campaign, and it’s good to see the developer continuing to innovate around its best-in-class on-field gameplay. You can check out a trailer of the new mode embedded above.
