March 8, 2016 Written by Alex Co

In case plain ‘ol baseball isn’t enough for you, MLB The Show 16 will introduce two new game modes called “Conquest” and “Battle Royal.”

Over on the US PlayStation Blog, Sony San Diego Game Designer Lance Leahy explains the two new game modes which is accompanied by a video shown above.

Battle Royale is the most challenging and competitive game mode Diamond Dynasty has ever seen. In this player-versus-player experience, you’ll be challenged to draft a team and outlast opponents in a double-elimination tournament to acquire unique rewards.

Conquest is like a classic turn-based strategy game that pits you against the 30 MLB teams on a map of North America. You’ll be tasked with the challenge of defeating MLB teams and conquering territories in order to complete specific missions that contain team-specific rewards.

Additionally, Sony San Diego will do a live-stream this coming Thursday on their Twitch channel to give fans a deeper look at both game modes.

MLB The Show 16 will bat its way out this March 29 exclusively on the PS3 and PS4.
