Soften up the mitts and load up the bats with pine tar as Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings from independent developer Metalhead Software launches today on Xbox One via the [email protected] self-publishing program. The newest version of the critically acclaimed game Super Mega Baseball, Extra Innings features a bevy of new content, including stadiums, enhanced gameplay and improved baseball simulation. To celebrate Super Mega Baseball’s opening day on Xbox One, Xbox Live Gold members will receive a 15 percent discount off the regular price of $19.99 USD for the next 10 days.
Following the launch on Xbox One, Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings will be available on PC via Steam on August 21 for $19.99 USD, and fans that purchase within the first week will also be eligible for a 15 percent launch discount. Additionally, all new content will be available for the PlayStation versions of the game via a free patch and DLC in September.
“Super Mega Baseball to us is a celebration of baseball and its culture, and I think we’ve also done the sport justice from a simulation perspective,” said Metalhead Co-founder Scott Drader. “From the beginning we sought to meld realistic baseball action with a fast-paced and accessible gameplay experience. I hope that with Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings we’ve delivered the fresh take on baseball that Xbox One and PC gamers have been looking for.”
