The launch of Super Mega Baseball 2, the follow-up to the popular Super Mega Baseball is right around the corner, and fans can get their hands on a copy of the game absolutely free.
That’s right. Free.
In a partnership with Microsoft, Super Mega Baseball 2 will be part of the company’s Games With Gold promotion for the month of May. That means Xbox One owners that are also Xbox Live Gold members will be able to download the game starting on launch day May 1st for free.
The launch promotion isn’t unlike what Psyonix did when it launched Rocket League back in 2015, as the game launched free on PlayStation 4 for PS Plus members.
The Games with Gold deal lasts from May 1-31, so players will have some time to get their hands on the new title. But that deal won’t last forever as it will soon be back to the full $29.99 price tag on the console.
Unfortunately for the PS4 and Steam players, Super Mega Baseball 2 will be full price at launch.
SMB2 features a number of major changes from the initial title that was released back in 2014. These features include:
- Cross-platform play between PC and Xbox One, and between PC and PS4
- 8 brand new stadiums
- Overhauled presentation
- New character models and animations.
- Full customization of teams, players and leagues
- New competitive and co-operative online modes with dedicated servers
- Refined baseball simulation with visceral physics and realistic play outcomes
- Enhanced image quality on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro
