Sony San Diego gameplay designer Ramone Russell makes his return to IGN and talks about the new and improved March to October mode. The extra-inning game shows over 40 minutes of gameplay footage.

MLB The Show 20 is scheduled to release on March 17, 2020. For those of you that pre-order any of the collector’s editions: MVP Edition, the GameStop Exclusive 15th Anniversary Edition, or the PS Store Exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition, you will gain access to the game four days early, for Early Access Weekend, starting on March 13, 2020.

  1. This might be a small thing to most people but I am not a fan of this new presentation not showing the batters Number and Fielding position at batter walk up :(
    Sometimes I really wonder what these presentation developers are thinking.
    The new scorebug is the best yet however even if it has to be in the bottom right corner.
    After watching this video all I can say is the PS5 can't come soon enough!!!
    Not a fan of the PCI. I hope all the old options are still available.
    EDIT: Looks like you can keep it solid and no dots in the center. That is what i was looking for.

    I have not watched the video yet.
    Not broadcast presentation maybe?

    I usually turn the pci off, but in an earlier stream, the showed that you can have a lot of customization for it. In addition to changing the inside and outside design, you can change the color and transparency level.

    Saw that. I was worried we couldn't get rid of the 3 dots or keep the PCI solid rather than fading. Found out you can do all of that so I'm good. I'll learn to adjust.
    Wondering where the 250 New Base Running Animations are at. A week a way from the game being launched and all running animations look like all previous years! Maybe SDS misspoke on these new animations!?

    They are still showing some stuff using old builds. Can’t remember which video I just saw it in but Kente Madea was still on the Dodgers. He was traded to the Twins right?

    @Jeffrey Smith,
    I definitely hope you are right. And yes Kenta Maeda was traded to the Twins.
    Gameplay and pace is looking really good. This mode is just a big miss for me unfortunately. I was perplexed when Ramone explained how people struggled to finish season mode and they needed to create this. You set the amount of games you wanted in a season.

    I would probably be more invested in it if there was total roster control. It would be nice to have injuries, draft, and ability to view your minor leagues. It is too restrictive in that trades and call ups are cued and not user controlled.
    If this is the entrance to franchise mode, what tutorial will lead people in understanding the complexities of call ups, waivers, options, draft, scouting, training, initiating trades by themselves in season 2?
    I do not buy this is a entrance to franchise if things like the trade hub is not accessible to the user in year 2.
    SDS has got to be the least innovative and laziest sports game company of all sports game companies if you think about the ideas they have came up with for franchise mode in the past 5 to 6 years is 3 to 4 different ways to simulate games that’s pretty much it and MTO which was created last year while they were working on franchise mode and decided to make it its own mode is just another way to sim games
    Anyone know if that awesome trade hub is gonna be in Franchise mode? Or is gonna be stranded in this shallow watered down version of season mode?
    I really don't get the appeal of March to October. I'm disappointed to see it get more resources than Franchise has the last two years.
    I did enjoy MTO while waiting for OSFM to drop last year. I won the WS with the Mets and Brewers and then lost in the wild card game with the Reds.
    It was a fun way to get through a season full of highs and lows and intense moments throughout.
    I like the changes they made for ‘20. The biggest is the improved situations they’ll drop you in. It felt like a grind being thrown into the 6th inning. I’m expecting these new situations to be engaging, intense and rewarding. They did say they’ll still be the No on No out start of an inning games but not often. This will make the season go by faster and I will be able to do it with more teams I’m interested in.
    The trades and callups are a nice touch. It will be better having a little more control over the direction of the trades you receive instead of it being random and you praying to the show gods to send you an offer for a 2B. And the callups will help keep the rosters fresh and actually allow you to use real life prospects who are expected to make an impact this year be apart of your MTO unlike last year.
    Though I do agree that new trade hub must be in franchise mode

    Like the game of baseball itself, The Show and SDS development has become extremely metrics driven. They've given the stats several times before, but Franchise players only make a small portion of their total players who buy the game. And they track metrics on usage/habits in addition to game modes being played. They know how often people 'X' through presentation. They know how often people Sim, how often people use quick counts, quick manage... How many people complete even a single season in Franchise mode. And so on, and so on.
    I'm certainly disappointed that Franchise hasn't seen much in the way of upgrades or improvements for years. But I do understand SDS's approach of focusing on the game modes that 90% of people play (RttS or DD). At least I understand it from the business standpoint.
    Also, I'm guessing they shifted some of their resources to start working with PS5 dev kit this year, so the game in general on PS4 is approaching its full lifecycle...

    Ditto, I ran through MTO w/Angels and Rockies while waiting for OSFM. Won WS with Angels on All Star. Lost with Rockies in Division Series on Hall of Fame.
    So I do like that you get some rewards even if you don't win the WS this year. And Dynamic Difficulty and/or the ability to change difficulty is nice, as straight Hall of Fame is a bit too difficult for my old eyes and reaction time!

    Yep, this is clearly what I see going on as well. I know it's hard to believe this when you post here, where it seems like we are all franchise guys, but if we were the high percentage of the fanbase, we would see some of these issues (progression/regression, budgets, trade logic, etc) fixed. Many franchise bugs have been known for 5+ years without being fixed. If we franchise guys were the biggest % of purchasers. then this things wouldn't still be broken.
    I still contest that if all you play is franchise, you are better served to but every other year. They do not make significant changes to warrant buying every year and blindly giving them your money does not motivate them to do anything about it.

    It looks like maybe the red fielding gloves look a little brighter this year, and not so maroon.

    I didn’t see the specific red glove you’re talking about, but the leather colors do look much improved this year
