Sign Up For Super Mega Baseball 2 Closed Beta on Xbox One, Online Multiplayer Trailer Revealed

Metalhead Software has announced Super Mega Baseball 2 will release a special closed beta, allowing select Xbox One fans to get a taste of the sequel to Super Mega Baseball, prior to its release in the spring.

The closed beta is scheduled to launch within the next two weeks, as a series of closed tests on Xbox One. All players interested in being selected to play in the closed beta, can sign up here.

NOTE: The closed beta will only be available in the U.S. and Canada.

During the multi-week closed beta timeframe, selected players will experience Super Mega Baseball 2’s reworked presentation in select modes of play. The initial tests are expected to feature Exhibition and Pennant Race modes.

“We’ve tackled an ambitious feature set on Super Mega Baseball 2 and view this Closed Beta as a way to make sure the game and its online systems are ready to party on launch day,” said Metalhead Co-Founder Scott Drader. “We expect we’ll get plenty of fantastic feedback that will help us polish and balance the experience on the way to the launch of the full game.”

To celebrate the closed beta, Metalhead has released a new trailer showcasing Super Mega Baseball 2’s online multiplayer. Click here, if the embedded video above, isn’t working for you.

Super Mega Baseball 2 is scheduled to release in the coming months on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam.

  1. Cant believe no ps4 beta.
    The game started out on ps4.
    Ive been waiting for info on this beta for months then they pull only xbox one.
    Maybe they figure ps4 is going with mlb the show??
    XBOne only...

    Welp, have fun guys. See you for the release day.
    Edit: I caught the words "Cross-platform" in that trailer?! Oh OK, can play vs PC on both but PS4 and XBOX can't play each other.
    Well, this stings pretty bad for PS4/PC users, especially after being strung along. Wonder if it will show in sales. Metalhead's reasoning for this is releasing the game "ASAP"... So we SHOULD see the game sooner than June as I had been worrying we might. Last way for them to save face imo, this is a pretty bad look...

    The game is coming out on PS4 and Steam still. It's just the beta that Xbox One only.

    For anyone wondering why the beta is only on XBOX One, here is what they said on Reddit:
    We just couldn't manage multiple betas in the end, it's so much extra non-dev work to run a beta - and we decided to prioritize getting the full game released asap, rather than pushing it to get in multiple betas. I know it's a little lame for non-Xboxers, but hopefully it's all worth it when the game gets released.

    Considering there's no competition on the XB, it makes sense they chose that console for their Beta testing.
    I asked on twitter if it would be possible to share user made rosters, the answer "we aren't sure yet", so there is still some hope for this.
    They also said they are working on a new reveal video covering core gameplay so everyone can get a look.

    So when is release?

    There is nothing concrete yet. The last release date is Spring 2018. My guess is it will release sometime in May in order to give the beta testers time to provide feedback and the SMB2 team to make tweaks.

    does anyone know where any beta footage is??
    I just wanna see some gameplay footage of this game that is supposedly coming out next month.

    Pretty sure anyone who was accepted for the beta had to agree not to share information and certainly not any footage.

    They'd be able to see who did it pretty easily and would quickly revoke access. Trust me.

    Sucks i didn’t get a code yet. Been itching to play this!

    Make sure you check the email you used when you signed up because that's where they sent out the steps to join. There were no codes.

    It's a separate one from that. I got in, but think there have only been two smallish waves sent out thus far so keep looking.
    I just got an email that I got in the beta, but when I go to the insider hub it isn't there. Did it take a while to appear for those that are already in?

    Got my email around noon... Just logged in now and it was there. So roughly 4 hours for me...

    Keep trying. It does take a little time to appear.
