Sony San Diego Studio (SDS) released details on a brand new game mode for MLB The Show 19, which drops for Playstation 4 on March 26. Each Monday leading up to the game’s release, SDS will partner with Gamestop to bring fans information on new features in this year’s game. Today’s video was an in-depth look at the all-new ‘March to October’ game mode. Here’s a full breakdown of the news from today’s Gamestop Monday video, which you can watch below.
MLB The Show 19 March to October Mode
March to October is a brand new mode in MLB The Show 19. Similar to season mode in other sports games, March to October takes you through one season with whichever team you choose. Upon selecting a team, you’ll see a short video about the team’s recent history and outlook for the 2019 campaign. The mode is vastly streamlined, as you’ll only be asked to play a small amount of moments or games out of the grueling 162 game regular season. Based on your performance in these “episodes,” your team will earn or lose momentum, which will directly impact the results of the season’s simulated portions.
This is hardly a replacement for online franchise mode, but it does give gamers a faster option than playing through a single season in an offline franchise. Road to October will have limited interruptions and notifications, so you won’t have to spend a lot of time clicking through menus. The ultimate goal is obviously to win the World Series, and this mode features rewards for online play. Each reward is team-themed, and the quality of the reward directly correlates to the difficulty you select.
