MLB The Show 18 Gameplay Stream Recap

MLB The Show 18

Sony San Diego Studios recently held another Twitch stream on February 15th, going over a number of new features coming to MLB The Show 18.

The stream, which you can watch in full below, goes over what the developers called “the little things” in this year’s game.

Those things include the new batting stance creator, the amount of new throwback uniforms, stadium changes and improvements, a custom practice mode, and more.

Also discussed were animations. There are hundreds of new animations ranging from tags to catches, home run swings to pitching.

In addition to that, a small yet major addition comes to MLB The Show 18 this year in the form of rain delays. It’s something fans have been wanting for years, but it just never made its way into the game. This year, that all changes as delays will be implemented. That being said there won’t be game postponements or doubleheaders just yet.

Lastly, it was also announced that “The Big Hurt” Frank Thomas will be a new legend available in this year’s game. He joins the previously announced Babe Ruth as the newest big-named legends to join The Show.

There’s plenty more that was covered in this week’s stream, and it’s well worth the watch. For more on “the little things” in MLB The Show 18, check it out below.

MLB The Show 18 launches on March 27 for PlayStation 4.
