I don’t know if people go to the “Field of Dreams” in Iowa to watch a baseball game played in a cornfield, or if they are there to see ghosts. It’s probably a mix of the two. This unique setting is part of MLB The Show 21. True to the popular line “If you build it, it will come” from the Field of dreams movie, you will have the chance to build your own stadium and plant your own cornfield using the new stadium creator from The Show. While this destination looks like the iconic Iowa location, I doubt you’ll see the spirits of legendary baseball players on the field, but we’ll have to wait and see what Sony has planned.
The stadium creator gives you a high level of freedom to make each baseball stadium distinct. Using 1000 different parts, you can choose the types of walls (determining their height and distance on the fly), define the location of the foul stakes and also design the stands, including the props positioned on the fly. inside and outside the stadium. As the trailer above shows, you can even make the horizon look like a scene from an alien invasion movie with a spaceship hovering ominously above the city.
Anything you create can be shared online. If you like someone else’s stadium and want to make a little change, you can download and edit it. I’m sure there will be no shortage of people inspired by Fenway’s green monster, only in every other color possible. Although The Show is launching on current and next-gen machines, the stadium-making feature is only available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S. However, all of these versions have cross-play functionality, so it will be interesting to see how Sony handles user-created stadiums in the online space as they will be usable in Diamond Dynasty and Franchise modes.
If you’re planning on playing MLB The Show 21 and spending some time in the stadium creator, I recommend two experiences: one with short walls as close to the infield as possible, and one with standard distant walls that are so high that no player could ever. hit a home run. It will be interesting to see how the games play out in these two locations.
MLB The Show 21 arrives April 20 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, and Xbox One. A Collector’s Edition starring the great Jackie Robinson will be released for all of these releases.
