Every Sunday, we will get you caught up on the sports gaming news you might have missed, during the busy week. This includes the latest videos from our content team and featured articles from the staff.
In the lead image, former champion Scott Quigg has a badly swollen right eye, but it appears that’s just one example of the damage that can be dished out and absorbed in the game. Our video team is a huge fan of following this upcoming boxing game, so be sure to also check out the create-a-boxer comparison video from last week as well where Prince compared eSports Boxing Club to Fight Night Champion.
Although the college football season has wrapped up in real life, Wolverine Studios has given the community a chance to relive it all over again and be part of the action as we continue to ride the high of college football being brought back to consoles by EA. Draft Day Sports: College Football 2021, one of the many simulation-based titles that Wolverine Studios has in its arsenal, has now left Early Access and is set to give simulation-style fans a chance to relive the last college football season — and much more.
There has been a lot written about EA Sports College Football so far, which is why we’re putting together this EA Sports College Football FAQ. NCAA Football 14 came out in 2013, so we’re in year seven of a college football drought. Things like College Football Revamped and the amazing roster editors here at OS keep that game alive to this day — and should be applauded for helping to show EA and game publishers overall there is still an unquenchable thirst for college sports games — but the masses have been hankering for something new for years now.
Welcome to another edition of the Tactics Room. This time around we will be putting together a PES 2021 wing rotation strategy guide. This is the third in a series of articles aimed at helping to explain some of the intricacies of PES 2021, specifically as it relates to tactics. If you’re unfamiliar with PES or new to the sport, tactics are simply: “An action or strategy carefully planned to achieve a specific end. In a football context, tactics can be described as how a team manages space, time, and individual actions to win a game.”
Baseball fans, rejoice! February is now upon us and aside from being one month closer to Opening Day, that means we just received news from SDS on MLB The Show 21. Nobody knew exactly what sorts of features and updates to expect from the this year’s edition up until the announcement was made, but that didn’t stop us from speculating on what kinds of ideas we might hear from the developers. But were we right? Let’s have a look at seven MLB The Show 21 predictions we made in our editorial Slack prior to the news, and whether we we were proven to be correct, incorrect, or if maybe it’s still too soon to tell.
SDS also announced an MLB The Show 21 beta and tech test for users beginning in two weeks. Starting on February 23 and lasting for about a week, this closed beta will involve a limited number of selected users who will be chosen to participate in a “technical test” for the game. This test will help stress test the servers, online matchmaking, cross-platform play, as well as gather miscellaneous feedback on the game itself. Anyone who wants to participate in the closed technical test, can sign up today.
On top of the official news today from SDS, a leak made the rounds on Twitter last night, courtesy of content creator Healy, teasing a new MLB The Show 21 create-a-stadium feature. While we generally don’t like to report on unverified leaks, the source of this information came from the San Diego Studio YouTube page on a video description that has since been taken down. The assumption would be this video description was a boilerplate one written for once the general public knows all the features. However, we don’t know all the features yet, so the YouTube description is out of step with the marketing and PR plan.
