MLB The Show 21: Here’s What Comes in Each Edition – IGN

MLB The Show 21 is heading to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S on April 20. You read that right, this year marks the first time the previously PlayStation-exclusive franchise is branching out and appearing on Xbox consoles as well. The game will be available in an array of editions, each of which gets you different extras. We have the full breakdown below. All editions are available for preorder now (see it at Best Buy).

Note that, unlike many games released during this transition period between console generations, there is no upgrade path between previous-gen and next-gen consoles for the standard edition of the game. The Jackie Robinson edition does get you the game both on previous-gen and current-gen consoles.

In addition to appearing on Xbox platforms for the first time, MLB The Show 21 will feature cross-platform multiplayer, so you can play against anyone, regardless of what console they’re using. It also supports “cross progression,” which lets you pick up where you left off on another platform, even if it’s a different console generation.

As for what new features MLB The Show 21 will have, we don’t have much to go on. The game’s official description says it will offer modes for players of all skill levels. It will include Road to the Show and Diamond Dynasty. You’ll also be able to play as new Legends. The development team says additional information will be presented in six “Feature Premier” streams, the first of which will arrive in March. So stay tuned.
