MLB The Show 16 will continue the franchises strong string of games

Spring is right around the corner and so is a new installment in the MLB The Show franchise. MLB The Show 16 looks to build on one of the more impressive sports gaming franchises and, if any past year is an indication, it is not likely to disappoint. A slew of new features have been added to this year’s edition of The Show and returning is the carry over saves from last year’s edition. Let’s go into depth on those features to see what is in store for us this year.

Carry Over Saves

Introduced in last year’s installment of The Show, carry over saves allow you to continue your Road to the Show or Franchise campaign from last year’s game. So, instead of restarting from the minors or from scratch, you can continue on your path to Cooperstown.


This brand new feature will allow players to slow down time during a game. That’s right, you can make your player go full matrix mode in order to dig out a ball in the hole or properly see the ball go from your bat and into McCovey Cove.

Road to the Show Improvements

The best career mode in any sports game will be getting some new features this year as well. These features include a new training system and new animations once your player completes season and career milestones. Another new underrated feature is the ability to play an entire series without returning to the Road to the Show menu.

MLB The Show 16 will have a lot to offer when it comes out March 29th. Along with the regular version of the game, an MVP edition along with a digital deluxe edition have been announced and the details of what is included in the both editions can be seen in the image at the top of this article. MLB The Show 16 hits PS4 and PS3 soon so get ready to play ball!
