MLB The Show 20 gameplay trailer was revealed Wednesday. With Spring Training starting for pitchers and catchers in just a few weeks, Sony's San Diego Studio decided to reveal the first gameplay trailer for the upcoming game.
The video doesn't go into much detail, but mentions a few new aspects for players to look forward to, such as a new game mode called Showdown, more realistic fielding mechanics, and of course, plently of new celebrations.
The gameplay reveal was intentionally vague to set the stage for a series of events and streams where new aspects of the game will be explained in detail.
What to expect in MLB The Show 20
From the developer live stream schedule, it's evident that the developers of MLB The Show 20 took player feedback to heart. For example, the Franchise Mode will now allow players to change their team's name, location, and logo, something players wanted to see in MLB The Show 19.
MLB The Show 20 will also include more rewards that allow players to grind for months after the game's release and more realistic fielding and throwing mechanics to avoid the frustration that comes from physically impossible CPU defensive plays.
The game will launch on March 17, 2020, but will be available on March 13, 2020 for those who pre-order the MVP Edition, GameStop Exclusive 15th Anniversary Edition, or the PlayStation Store Exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition.
