To help explain some of the new features in MLB 15 The Show on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita, the developers released a new video this week all about Universal Rewards, Licensed Equipment, and the 30 Legends.
In addition to rewarding you with XP and Stubs while you play, your Universal Profile in MLB 15 The Show earns you Items usable through a variety of different game modes:
Road to the Show
- Road to the Show is a mode focused on one player’s path to the majors and beyond. As you play, you’ll find different qualities of licensed equipment that can enhance your player’s attributes. Once you find them, you’ll equip them to your player for an instant boost to his skill. Your player has slots for a Bat, Batting Gloves, Fielding Glove, Cleats, and echoing the traditions of our sport, a Ritual item.
- Franchise is a mode focused on managing baseball organizations on every level. Periodically, you’ll find Brand Sponsorship contracts. Once you have the contract in hand, you can choose at any time to partner your Franchise team with the Brand. Doing so will add some Brand flavor to your interface during game broadcasts. The Sponsorship also earns your team budget incentives based on how you performance in a certain statistic.
- Diamond Dynasty is a fantasy baseball card mode where you build a custom team and assemble players you find into a squad. Diamond Dynasty is drastically changed this year so keep an eye out for a more focused blog about it. MLB Player Cards and Stadiums Cards will be rewarded as you play. While playing any mode, you’ll be passively building a fantasy squad of MLB pros.
- Collect an entire MLB team or get really lucky with a pack, and you’ll unlock an iconic alumni player from one of 30 MLB teams.
