MLB The Show 22 PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Sony San Diego Studio hasn’t revealed too much about the improvements we can expect in MLB The Show 22, which will launch 5th April on PlayStation 5 and PS4. However, pre-orders for the new-gen version on the PS Store do confirm some tantalising new details, including the return of Stadium Creator. Once again, this will be exclusive to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

“Build your dream ballpark with a streamlined user interface and enjoy night games in your stadium,” the blurb reads. Presumably this means there’ll be a ton of new lighting options, too, as you can’t exactly play ball in pitch black conditions, can you? Well, you can, but it probably wouldn’t be pretty to say the least.

The game will run in 4K at 60 frames-per-second on the PS5, and it’ll support all of the console’s flagship features, including the DualSense controller and 3D audio. To be fair, it was supremely satisfying to hit perfect-perfect home runs in MLB The Show 21, as you could physically feel the wood wobble in your hands.

A series of Feature Premieres will debut in the lead up to launch, so we’ll find out a few more firm details then. Of course, if you missed the cover reveal trailer, then you can watch that through here.
