MLB The Show 21 comes out next week. Unfortunately, that means our time with Coach is running short. The good news is, we’ve got one last week of content reveals leading up to the game’s launch. Tomorrow, San Diego Studios will air its feature premier on Diamond Dynasty. As is tradition, today we get a Q&A on Diamond Dynasty in MLB The Show 21 with Coach and Ramone Russell.
MLB The Show 21: Diamond Dynasty
Unlike some previous videos, today’s Q&A rapidly burns though a lot of short questions. Perhaps the most important question is asked second: Battle Royale with friends? “No,” says Russell, but he does tease a better future by adding, “but that’s a good idea.”
Russell starts the video by reassuring players that every single Diamond Dynasty card can be achieved by playing the game. He adds that the team at San Diego Studios has been working on making it easier to earn some of the more difficult cards in DD. Russell also confirmed that MLB The Show 21 will have new Diamond Dynasty card series. We’ve technically already seen a new series, with the reveal of The 42. Today’s Q&A gives us yet another sneak peek at a second new series in MLB The Show 21.
Some things won’t change. Though MLB The Show 21 is finally coming to multiple platforms, there will be one shared Diamond Dynasty marketplace. Roster updates will continue to occur weekly. Showdowns and Moments, which Russell says are a core feature of The Show series, will return. The designated hitter will not be added this year.
Russell closed by revealing that the prestige system is among the many aspects of MLB The Show 21 that are being “completely revamped.” He didn’t reveal too much, since it will be covered in more detail in tomorrow’s feature premier.
Folks who own the Digital Deluxe or Jackie Robinson editions of MLB The Show 21 will be able to play the game starting April 16. The game officially launches on April 20 for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
