R.B.I. Baseball Returns To PS4 This Spring
MLB Advanced Media announced today a followup to last year’s R.B.I. Baseball 14. Due out this spring on PS4, R.B.I. Baseball 2015 aims to build on the two-button arcade-style gameplay found in the previous game with a host of new additions. Headlining the changes is the inclusion of a much demanded online multiplayer feature:
BALLPARKS: Completely redesigned authentic Major League ballparks for all 30 franchises, each crafted with detailed design characteristics fans will easily recognize.
FULL ROSTERS: Play with complete 25-man Major League rosters for all 30 teams, modifying your batting order or pitching rotation at any point. Set the active 25-man roster from each franchise’s 40-man roster.
STAT TRACKING: Track batting and pitching statistics in season mode for the first time ever, including viewable team, player and season league leaderboards.
ONLINE PLAY: Choose to play in online multiplayer mode in friendly and ranked games.
GAMEPLAY SETTINGS: Pick your competition level – Easy, Medium or Hard.
Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo has signed on to be R.B.I Baseball 2015’s cover athlete. Being the first ever cover athlete for the series, Rizzo also becomes the first Cubs player to adorn the cover of a video game in over 10 years. MLBAM have also announced that Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martínez will promote the game.
Nick felt last year’s game had a solid base that was spoiled by a no-frills approach and some cheap AI. It looks like MLB Advanced Media are looking to address a lot of his complaints in their sophomore effort.
