MLB The Show 18 – Feature Talk: Road To The Show Progression | PS4


We’re evolving Road
to The Show this year, and this is a mode we have in
the game for people who don’t want to use everybody. Some people just want to create
their player like the RPG and just use him. So you’re basically trying to
start in the Minors and make it all the way
to the Majors, right? After you create your guy, you’re going
to pick an archetype. This is a big change
for Road to The Show. This is going to govern the
type of player that you want to become. So here’s The Wizard. The strengths are
fielding and speed; weakness is power because you can’t do everything. You have starting caps and max
caps on all of our attributes. Those max caps, you
can’t improve upon those. Those are going to be locked
unless you put on some dope equipment like some
shoes, some cleats, and you can go past the
cap, but it’s a tradeoff. Do you want to hit for contact? Do you want to hit for power? Do you want glove? Do you want speed? So you’re going to
choose Ball Hawk. Why the Ball Hawk? Because you can improve them. A lot faster to improve a
Ball Hawk than a Powerhouse. Power Corner?
Absolutely. Hit home runs. Power corner. Something told me you
were going to pick that. Let’s try Mr. Reliable. Mr. Reliable?
All right. I’m going to go Good Hands.
They’re kind of in the middle. I want to be somebody that can
help out the team in multiple ways. Gotta go Plain Filthy. I think it’s just the guys
with the nastiest pitches. You know what I mean? When you have nasty
pitches, you get outs. This is dope. Oh, almost. So if you start to increase your
speed and your reaction time, you’ll eventually be
able to get to that ball. And that’s what’s really
fun about Road to The Show. Everything you do, that’s
how make your guy better. You want to hit for power? You need to hit
doubles, triples, and home runs. All of the points
are autospent now, so you can’t create that 99 guy where you’re like I want that
99 speed. I want 99 contact. You have to do it all
in realtime in the game. Cool.
My guy rakes. It does.
So you got Batting Clutch. So these are all
attributes going up in realtime. So we’re looking at the Base
Gain screen which is all new
to MLB The Show 18. So you can see on the screen
here your Contact went up. And your Contact went up because
you got base hits against right-handed pitching. Your Power also kind
of stayed the same, but it went up a little bit. So let’s go down here to
Arm Accuracy which went down. Why did this go down, Trea? I might have thrown the ball to
third base when I was supposed to
throw to first. I don’t know. I know where to throw
the ball in real life. So another thing is players
learn stuff from being on different teams and
having different teammates. Let’s say you get
drafted by the Yankees, you are going to have
opportunities to train with really good players that hit a
lot of home runs and that will help you hit more home runs just because you’re
on that team. It’s realistic man. It’s cool. And that’s a small snippet of
what’s in Road to The Show this year. Pre-order now.
