MLB The Show 20 Closed Beta Details Revealed, Along with Twitch Livestream Schedule Dates

Sony San Diego Studios has just revealed some of the closed beta details for MLB The Show 20, during their brief Twitch livestream. If you missed it, you can watch the archive here or in the embedded video below. We’ve also posted some of the details as well.

Just to refresh your memory, the closed beta for MLB The Show 20 starts tomorrow, January 14 and ends on January 20. Players that get selected can download the closed beta as early as today. The modes available in the closed beta include: Events, Battle Royale, Play with Friends, and DD vs CPU.

Watch MLB The Show 19 Livestream from SonySanDiegoStudio on www.twitch.tv

Submitting Feedback

A brand new forum, specifically for the closed beta will be setup at The Show Nation Forums. These forums will be created on Tuesday. This is the ONLY authorized site to post impressions and discuss the closed beta.

You are not allowed to Twitch stream the closed beta or discuss it on social media, this includes any form of content creation. You are not allowed to post screenshots or discuss it on any form of public post. If you do post something outside of The Show Nation Forums, your account will be subject to getting banned.

Take the Surveys

Not only can you provide feedback in the official Show Nation Forums, they will also offer players to fill out surveys. This will also give the team valuable feedback and information.

Where are the Closed Beta Invites?

MLB The Show 20 closed beta invites are going out right now. So check your PlayStations, you might have to restart it. The invites are going out all day today, so keep an eye out.

What is the purpose of the closed beta?

It is for gameplay testing and tuning, specifically for hitting, fielding and throwing. Feedback is very important for those 3 areas, for final balancing, prior to shipping the game out.

Are there any issues in the beta we should be aware of?

Yes, there are issues, the team is already aware of and they are very well defined. Those details will be revealed in the beta forums at The Show Nation. None of the issues will stop you from playing the game, they are simply things they know about and will be fixed before the game ships.

How do you provide feedback?

Just by playing the game, you are providing valuable feedback, as they can view the telemetry data, which include hits, strike outs, home runs, etc. The dedicated forum area at The Show Nation will become available once the beta arrives tomorrow morning (you should see a red button in the top right area of the screen). The plan is to go “LIVE” with the Forums at 10:00 AM tomorrow. There will be dedicated threads for throwing, hitting and fielding, as well as an area for surveys. The surveys will go “LIVE” on Thursday.

Here’s the schedule of events for the MLB The Show 20 close beta.

Ramone also teased the Twitch livestream schedule for MLB The Show 20. While the titles have been replaced by question marks, it will be fun to guess what they could be. Either way, at least some dates and times have been revealed.

    If it's the same pattern, 3/4 is probably March to October.
    I don't see anything for franchise...unless it is labeled something different or the ??? Mark's do not correlate to characters, although they have in the past.

    Hope it's in. No need to buy if franchise has. Ot been touched....I'm really hoping it is. I could not get into the game this year. Boring and repetitive. Fixes from previous years were even gone.
    Nothing worst than seeing a player sign a long term deal and retire mid contract. I'm sure 30 teams wish that would happen in real life.
    Hate when I have an injury late in the season have to play playoffs short handed.
    Offseason is boring.

    Dont quote me on this but im pretty sure MTO is transforming into the new franchise. I was upset at first but to be honest franchise has been a bit stale the past few years so if they drastically improve MTO with franchise elements then im intrigued. Last year was just the start of the transformation.

    There stupid little marketing nonsense is starting to piss me off. Why play games? Just announce what you’re going to talk about and when.

    No big deal here but i do agree it’s a bit childish. And from another thread somewhere, most of us are now all over 40 :cool:

    I would be really disappointed if that is all. Unless the changes take place in the "old" franchise mode as well.

    MTO feels more like a knockoff of season mode than a opportunity to morph into a new franchise mode. I really wanted to enjoy MTO in 19, but it has a loong way to go before I get seriously involved. if it returns in 20, I'll give it another fair shake

    I think there’s some potential if both well integrated. MTO with 90 players roster, injuries, full trades etc would be fun.

    They said "Greater Customization", I hope they took a page from MyLeague and incorporate the amount of customization you see in MyLeague on 2K into Franchise Mode for MLBTS 20. I skipped 19 due to minium Franchise improvements so hopefully there is enough for me to buy it this year.

    Seems beyond unlikely that franchise mode is getting a stream on the opening day. Much more likely is that it's like last year and they have a separate hitting and fielding stream. First days streams have always been gameplay oriented iirc, then mode specific streams later

    It looks like no one who actually signed up for the beta got an invite.
    Only people who never signed up are getting invites.

    I didn't realize there were even signups for this. They randomly pop up for me every year, so I assumed they sent them to people who played the mode. Interesting.

    I signed up last year and didnt get one, looks like I will be this year!
    Lol, sounds like a classic SDS balls up where they've accidentally invited a bunch of people who didn't sign up, but no one who actually did, so now are just going to invite everyone who signed up and play it off as intentional.
    Alls well that ends well though, hopefully this gets one of their gaffs out of their system before the actual game comes out

    Signed up the first day, didn't get an invite. That really sucks, especially when people who didn't sign up are getting invites.
    They did say they were having troubles getting invites out, and they extended the beta for another day bc of it. Maybe you'll still get yours!

    I got an invite last year and this year. I didnt participate last year because, as a casual player, I didnt think I could add anything of value. But this year, I'm going to participate and hope to provide some "for what it's worth" feedback from a casual players perspective.

    I think this is invaluable. The bulk of the people who buy the game are ‘casual’ players and I suspect many of them aren’t even aware of the beta. The true hardcore fans (whether offline or online players) make up a fraction of the audience and their feedback often is not in the best interest of the game as a whole.

    As one who only plays franchise, and sometimes RTTS, I am saddened that the Beta does not contain these modes. One would think, logically, that if any significant changes or improvements were made, they would need beta testing. If, on the other hand, they have pretty much left these modes untouched as they spend nearly every resource on card-collecting and microtransaction modes, there would be (as we see) no need for Beta on them. Disappointing, but largely expected. I guess MLB 15 on my Vita remains my primary, with MLB 19 on the PS4 as backup. No need to buy this one, it appears.

    No...actually it doesn't.
    If they were to include franchise mode or RTTS the download would be massive to be able to include all of the resources/content needed to be able to use those modes. It would require more time and effort to make available a BETA to the public.

    I think it could also be a practical move too. I ‘believe’ SDS is able to make server side gameplay tuning changes for DD, so they can tune during the beta based on feedback vs doing a patch like for offline.

    * Events
    * Battle Royale
    * Online vs Friends
    * DD vs CPU
    My guess is they wanted to provide some substance to the BETA to keep the community engaged to keep playing so they can obtain as much feedback as possible.

    Being very clear....I'm speaking in generalities about DD, this is not a Beta-specific point.
    It is VERY easy to put together lineups in DD with players rated in-line with what you'd see in franchise (i.e. just use guys without any ratings above 99 - some can go up to 125 on DD). From there, playing vs CPU lineups (which will be the current-day team) gets you pretty darn close to franchise style gameplay.
    That is how I tested during last year's Alpha. Much like how people over-adjust sliders and adversely imbalance gameplay in odd ways, I think the inflated ratings of many DD cards cause some weird effects. I try to bypass that potential imbalance and assess based on more appropriately rated players.

    Those are all DD modes aren't they? Or is online v friends using real teams instead of your DD team?

    That's not actually true though I'm pretty sure, speaking as someone who plays DD and franchise a lot. The gameplay isn't the same in the two modes even if you have the same players, they have previously said that they adjusted DD gameplay to factor in the higher rated cards, so a 70 power DD card doesn't play like a 70 power player in franchise.

    No matter if they are or not the premise is still that the focus of the BETA is gameplay not game modes.
    They have 4 primary areas of focus

    Ah, okay, thanks! I was not that familiar with the beta process.
    I can’t get into these betas because of it being DD. I’d rather just be able to select the road team and play as the real mlb team in their uniforms. I have no interest in DD!
    If all of the teams are in the game why can’t I just play a regular game with two MLB teams???
    Played maybe 3 innings of last year’s beta and shut this one off after an inning and a half. Just have no interest with controlling a DD squad. Can’t focus on game play because the uniforms are generic and I’m not wasting time making them, and the rosters are all over the place with players I’ve never used so how am I supposed to know how the game is meant to be played vs. the results I’m seeing.
    The link provided to the official forums doesn’t even work for me so I can’t even provide this bit of “feedback” to them. Quit shoving DD down our throats! You’re going to lose a lifetime of sales and players who have literally purchased systems just to play this franchise. I’m not alone, there’s a contingency of us out there. We do matter. And it may not be instantaneous, but the effect of us not playing this game will he felt down the line should this continue on its current trajectory.

    You're correct, but we're talking two different things. In the actual game, sure, there will likely be different tuning setups....but there is only one tuning setup in this situation...so everything is on equal footing.

    I have no idea what the Feb 6th stream is about, and frankly don't care.
    I'm just ready to hear about what is in store for '20.
    The ability to choose season length is the only feature that matters to me. If they don't have it, I'm not sure I can sit back and buy this game... It's such a deal breaker knowing I have to play 162 games or sim and lose some immersion without the option to play 29-56 games. Crossing fingers, that's for sure.

    Saw that too. How does a development team warrant patching a beta?

    I would assume they warrant patching a beta by finding something they want to change to obtain data that would be closer to the final version?
    Am I misunderstanding your question?

    Thanks. The question is, it's a beta. Why patch a beta version that's only available for a few days? Why not release the beta, collect the data, fix the issues, release with your normal 37 patches?

    Yes, we do. They put notes up at the top of the beta forum page. I'm not gonna say what the patch did bc I don't wanna break any rules haha

    Because they want feedback on the changes made via the patch in the Beta or they went ahead and fixed a known bug or a bug found in the Beta.

    They patched the Beta. Lol.

    Yeah it’s common practice
    Most game companies that release public Betas will patch them based on community feedback so they can receive feedback from the community on the changes made.

    It did not add additional stadiums to play in. I'm on it right now and the same ones are the only ones available.

    You have to get them in a pack.

    Yes.
    The patch fixed a bug that was found during BETA testing and added additional stadiums to play in.

    Now I realize why I kept getting the same stadiums in packs, I was getting angry when all I was getting were 6 Busch Stadiums and Yankee Stadiums. :lol:

    I just opened roughly 50 packs and still only got the same 4 stadiums as before. So I still don't see where all of you are saying they added others.

    Did you download the patch? Are you on version 1.03?
    If so, go to MY INVENTORY and then MY STADIUMS and you'll see the cards for the new stadiums added (they are Ironhorse and Shippett)
    I just played a game in Ironhorse last night.
    They are there.

    I thought you referred to MLB stadiums. I did get the MILB stadiums.

    No I just said two additional stadiums to play in
    I'd love to see some lighting improvements. This game seriously needs better lighting and grass. It will completely transform its looks. I'd settle for even the most minor improvements so it doesn't look so boxy.
