Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Baseball fans,  MLB The Show 21 launches tomorrow! With that in mind, let’s talk about the modes and a few tips to get you started.

Road To The Show and Ballplayer

Are you interested in more of an RPG experience? Then, Road To The Show has everything you need. For the first time in MLB The Show, your Ballplayer can be a 2-way player – a hitter and a pitcher – which creates flexibility in player position options. Enjoy a revamped player progression system that emphasizes adaptability and variety. Customize your ballplayer to start your career, develop your skills, earn your Major League call-up and make a case to be enshrined in the Hall of Fame.

At the start of the game, don’t forget to apply your equipment. This may feel like a basic step, but every great Ballplayer needs good equipment on their Road to the Show.

March To October

Jump into gameplay action when your MLB team needs you the most – in critical moments and pressure-packed at bats. Swing for the fences and shift the momentum during your Postseason run! As you advance through the season, unique narrative commentary content will progressively and dynamically unfold the essential story of your chosen MLB club’s campaign.

User performance in these games will really count, as the outcomes of the games you play will swing a “team momentum” factor, influencing how your team performs between each played episode and the next.

You will be delivered from episode to episode with maximum action and intrigue, and minimal menu interfacing. It’s all about getting your team to the Postseason and beyond. Can you elevate your performance in the biggest moments down the stretch? Your poise under pressure will determine the fate of your chosen team’s season.

Stadium Creator

Available on next gen consoles only, MLB The Show 21 gives you the ability to build and customize stadiums with more than 1,000 props ranging from foul poles, signs, buildings and much more. We have designed specific stadium kits ranging from realistic to fantasy, giving players the ability to create bespoke layouts, dimensions, wall heights, and more while being able to use created stadiums in both Diamond Dynasty and Franchise modes. With an internet connection, the fun doesn’t stop. Players can share, edit and play in stadiums created by fellow MLB The Show community members, too.

Diamond Dynasty

In Diamond Dynasty, you can build your all-time dream team from the ground up. Play single player or online games with more than 150 legends – Ken Griffey Jr., Jackie Robinson, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron! Mix Hall of Famers into your lineup with current-day players, Flashbacks and your custom Ballplayer.

Gain XP by playing anywhere in MLB The Show 21 to unlock a variety of rewards in time-limited Programs. Those rewards help you upgrade your squad and customize your look. Equip yourself with new uniform options or bat skins to play in your dream ballpark in Stadium Creator (Next-gen consoles only).

New NieR Replicant gameplay showcases intense 2-on-1 boss fight

We’re excited to show you more about NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, the predecessor to NieR:Automata, where you’ll follow the journey of a young man on a quest to cure his sister from a deadly disease. During your adventure, which features different endings over multiple playthroughs, you will have many memorable encounters with an unlikely cast of characters, including Grimoire Weiss, a mysterious talking book with a somewhat snooty attitude and Kainé, a fierce fighter with a foul mouth.

Speaking of Grimoire Weiss, Square Enix partnered with the PlayStation team for a new episode of PlayStation Underground featuring the verbose tome. Watch below for a new slice of NieR Replicant gameplay:

New NieR Replicant gameplay showcases intense 2-on-1 boss fight

The original version, titled NIER (also known as NieR Gestalt in Japan), released in 2010 on PlayStation 3, and became a cult hit thanks to its unique setting, engaging storytelling, and outstanding soundtrack. It was followed in 2017 by NieR:Automata for PlayStation 4, which quickly gained vast critical acclaim thanks to its fluid combat and mind-blowing narrative. With the success of NieR:Automata, we’re happy to bring you an enhanced version of NieR Replicant (the 2010 version that was previously only released in Japan), so you can experience the original story with revamped combat, enhanced visuals, newly recorded voice-overs largely featuring the original cast, a re-arranged and re-recorded soundtrack, and more.

How to become a glorious warrior in Chivalry 2’s closed beta

Buy Chivalry 2 on PlayStation 4 and you’ll get a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version. 

Chivalry 2 is enhanced for PlayStation 5 and features 4K visuals and DualSense controller adaptive triggers and haptics. A few examples:

  • On the left trigger, holding block gets harder as your stamina falls
  • The right trigger will increase pressure for bows as you hold back the string
  • Localized haptic feedback on strikes let you feel where every hit lands

Chivalry 2 is a multiplayer first person slasher launching June 8 that throws players into the thick of epic, medieval warfare. Fight in massive 64-player battles across a variety of maps that feel straight out of the best medieval movies of all time. Whether you’re sieging a walled city to assassinate the heir to the throne, or setting a village on fire while peasants (and chickens) scream in protest – in Chivalry 2 you’ll use the freedom of traditional FPS-style control to become a whirlwind of steel on the battlefield. 

Our team Torn Banner Studios is composed of industry veterans as well as members of the original development team for Chivalry: Medieval Warfare (2012). Chivalry 2 began development in 2017 and we’re so excited to finally unleash the full game in June 2021.
