IGN has posted a new MLB The Show 16 video, featuring Sony San Diego's Ramone Russell walking through the recently released trailer and going over many more details about the game.
Below are some of the details, but watch the entire video here.
All appropriate stadiums will have open and closed roof options (option for open or closed in Exhibition/Online games, for RTTS and Franchise, it will depend on the weather for that day)
Physically Based Rendering - Makes wood look like wood, glass look like glass, concrete look like concrete, etc...
Showtime - Slows down critical moments (dive plays, hot corner reactions, steal attempts, pressure batting moments) to give the user more precise control. Showtime is only seen in RTTS in Player Lock and it will be an optional feature you can turn on/off.
Added over 100 signature home run swings, tons of new pitcher reaction animations, so they get out of the way of the ball and not get hit as much.
Briefly went over HumanIK, which fixes transitional animations from years past, but more will be revealed in the future.
Added over 50 new double play animations, over 100 dive/throw animations, 3 brand new running styles (small, athletic, lumbering)
Conquest mode - More to be revealed later, as it is too big to cover in this particular video
Another mode that wasn't shown in the trailer, will be revealed at a later date.
Return of classic stadiums - Forbes Field, Shibe Park, Sportsman Park, Polo Grounds, Crosley Field, Griffith Park
6 new legends revealed, but more to come. All legends from last year will return.
2 new Diamond Dynasty card types - Rookie and Prime
