MLB 14: The Show is looking mighty nice in this video dev-blog which highlights new features to get more gameplay in a shorter amount of time. The series is introducing quick counts and a Fast Play mode. When players set the Presentation Mode to Fast Play, it will speed up the gameplay by skipping most of the fanfare and pleasantries. However, if you wish to pretend you’re watching the game on TV, just stick with the Broadcast Mode. Also new to the series is the Player Lock feature, which will allow you to play a single character for the entire game.
Watch the video for a quick breakdown on what’s in store for MLB 14: The Show before it hits PS3 and PS Vita on April 1. Sadly, ballplayers on the PS4 will have to wait until May 31 to throw their first pitch.
