Sony unveils new PS4 stadiums video for MLB 14: The Show

Posted on April 7, 2014 AT 01:00pm

With the 2014 Major League Baseball season now entering its second week, fans are understandably antsy to play the PS4 incarnation of MLB 14: The Show, which won’t be available till May 6th. For those who can’t wait to experience what this version has in store, Sony has released a video showcasing the park upgrades that players will see as they take the field in each revered (or, in the case of places like Coliseum and Tropicana Field, not so revered) hardball cathedral.

One of the big upgrades the PS4 affords is the use of specular maps—in layman’s terms, technology that helps accentuate the shininess of objects—throughout each stadium, which will help emphasize iconic features like Chase Field’s sometimes-Dodger-infested pool and the centerfield LED sign featuring the jovial, handshaking-across-the-Mississippi Minnie and Paul at Target Field. Players will notice more realistic crowds, too, with “up to 1,000 different character models,” including kids tagging along with Mom and Pop and enjoying the ballgame for the first time in the franchise.
