  • MLB The Show 16 will have a draft mode of its own in Diamond Dynasty
    Posted March 5th, 2016 at 4:15 pm 9 Comments »
    One of the most popular additions to any sports game last year was Draft Champions in Madden NFL 16. That mode allowed people to creatively craft a team's roster through a limited draft and then use the team without any lengthy commitment being required. EA Sports followed that up with a similar mode in FIFA 16, known as FUT Draft, though instead of being independent it was contained within Ultimate Team mode. Now it appears MLB The Show 16 will have its own "draft" mode to be associ...
