The highly anticipated Major League Baseball (MLB) video game being developed by Sony San Diego and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment has today exclusively and officially launched on the PlayStation 4 providing the 12th entry of the MLB: The Show franchise.
MLB The Show 17 is the first game in the series to be exclusively available on the PS4. Matt Vasgersian returns for The Show 17, commentary, although Harold Reynolds and Dan Plesac will replace Eric Karros and Steve Lyons. The official PlayStation blog has provided 12 steps to get you started :
Step 1: Get MLB The Show 17. Can’t play if you don’t have the game, right?
Step 2: Kiss Griffey for good luck.
Step 3: Do 17 jumping jacks.
Step 4: Load up MLB The Show 17 on your PS4.
Step 5: Warm up with a few games in Retro Mode, kickin’ it Ken Griffey Jr. style. Mash that X button and hit homers all day.
Step 6: Boot up Road to the Show and start building your character. Will he get a gnarly beard or a good ol’ fashioned stache?
Step 7: Use training points to make him harder, better, faster and stronger.
Step 8: Roll out of the minors when your agent calls you with an offer to head to The Show. But be careful: the path to the majors may not always go the way you want, and is greatly determined by your choices.
Step 9: Want to play only the best bits? Jump into Franchise Mode and cut directly to those nail-biting, game-deciding moments with Critical Situations. Or use Player Lock to hop on the field and follow one specific player throughout the game.
Step 10: Build your Dynasty. Step up to the plate and compete against your friends in Battle Royale with short three-inning games to settle your grudges.
Step 11: Conquer the U.S. and take over rival territories in Conquest Mode. Dominate in quick three-inning games to energize your fans and take the world by storm!
Step 12: Do a victory dance. Repeat.
