MLB The Show 16 Launches March 29th, 2016 on PS4, PS3

The 2015 MLB season just wrapped up with the Kansas City Royals taking (back) The Crown, but we’re not ready to stop talking baseball here at PlayStation. Our team in San Diego is hard at work making next year’s edition of The Show our best console baseball experience ever. We’re proud to announce that MLB The Show 16 will launch on PS4 and PS3 on March 29th, 2016!

We kicked off 2016 at PlayStation Experience, where we gave fans a first look at what’s coming to next year’s game. In MLB The Show 16, you’ll experience baseball’s most epic moments like never before with ShowTime. Using ShowTime, you can slow down critical moments for maximum control. ShowTime offers gamers a powerful new tool to help them excel in those big baseball moments.

You’ll be able to make diving plays, react at the hot corner, and step up for a clutch at bat with finer and more focused control.

We’ve also made the Road to the Show experience more personalized and rewarding in 2016. A revamped training system gives you the chance to unlock Gameplay Perks as you work your way through Road To The Show (PS4 only). You can also expect a more streamlined Road To the Show experience, as a new paradigm for base-running and fielding opportunities will maximize the time you spend in situations that matter. And for the first time ever in the MLB The Show franchise, you can play an entire series of Road To The Show games without ever having to navigate the main menu between games.

We’re also ecstatic to announce our Cover Athlete for 2016: Josh Donaldson of the Toronto Blue Jays! Josh had a monster year in 2015, winning the American League MVP along with the MLB Players Association’s Player of the Year award and the AL Outstanding Player award. He also set a new record for most votes ever received for an All Star Game performance. Now Josh can add being on the cover of MLB The Show to his laundry list of accomplishments. Josh is also the first MLB The Show Cover Athlete to grace both the US and CA cover. We’re excited to have such a dynamic player represent The Show in 2016.

Finally, we’re excited to announce that PS4 pre-orders for MLB The Show 16 are now live! Those who pre-order the game will receive 10 bonus standard-item packs and a MLB The Show Player Rep Rookie Card when you pick-up or download the game. Those who pre-order at GameStop (or EB Games in Canada) will additionally receive five bonus item packs and those who pre order on the PS Store will receive three exclusive MLB The Show-themed PS4 Avatars (in addition to their 10 item packs and Rookie Card).
