MLB 14: The Show’s first dev blog explains Quick Counts and Player Lock features

Posted on February 26, 2014 AT 10:55am

In MLB 14: The Show’s first dev blog, community manager Ramone Russell explains the ways in which SCEA San Diego Studios is trying to fit “more baseball in less time” with this latest installment.

Two new features in particular are discussed at length by Russell: Quick Counts and Player Lock.

Quick Counts speed up the game by using an algorithm to generate a pitch count so that at bats start not at 0-0, but at middle counts or late counts, like 2-1 or 0-2.

SCEA San Diego Studios is also blending elements from Road to the Show into the main game through Player Lock, which as the name suggests lets you experience the entire game as just one baseball player, not the whole team.

For more specifics, check out the dev blog (embedded below) and Russell’s post on the PlayStation Blog.

MLB 14: The Show launches on PlayStation 3 and Vita April 1. A PS4 release will follow in May.
