On Thursday, PlayStation put out new information on their blog about the highly-anticipated release of MLB 14: The Show. The game will feature a number of improvements, including year-to-year saves, community challenges, simplified add-on purchases and all-new high-definition beards:
PlayStation went into further detail about the addition of Stubs, their new universal currency system:
We want to be very clear with this, however, since it’s a frequent question and concern among the community: not one cent needs to be spent on Stubs for users to enjoy a full experience in any of our modes.
What’s more, Stubs are earned through general gameplay (just like XP) and tied to your Universal Profile. Most importantly, the rate at which Stubs are earned is intentionally generous. We are not designing the system to pressure players into spending money. It will be the same system it’s been in years prior, just all rolled together with a new name.
PlayStation will be rolling out more information on the game later this month (when hopefully we'll find out if it includes a replay system for questionable calls). IGN has already said it might be PS4's best-looking game.
The game debuts for the PS3 in April and the PS4 in May.
