MLB The Show 20 Pre-Order Guide: Release Date, Anniversary Edition, Bonuses, And More

MLB returns for its 2020 season next month, and you can bet there will another MLB game to accompany it. MLB The Show 20 (the 15th entry in the series) launches March 17 on PS4–a week and change before Opening Day. If you don’t want to wait that long you can pre-order the game, which will get you access a few days early.

Let’s address the elephant in the room first. In December, Sony revealed that MLB The Show would no longer be a PlayStation exclusive. The change doesn’t go into effect until 2021, though. It’s too early to say which platforms MLB The Show 21 will release on, but based on tweets from Nintendo and Microsoft, Xbox One/Series X and Nintendo Switch owners will probably get to play one of the best sports sim series of all time next year.

We recently got to mess with some of the improvements developer SIE San Diego is making in this year’s entry, including instantaneous attribute boost, real time chemistry mechanics, and more. We also learned this entry will have full minor league rosters at its disposal at launch–an exiting first for the series.
