Posted January 17th, 2013 at 5:30 pm


SCEA has released a look at some of the changes coming to Diamond Dynasty mode in MLB 13: The Show. Diamond Dynasty was introduced in MLB 12 as an attempt at creating a team-building/card collecting mode similar in nature to Ultimate Team found in EA Sports titles. Conceptually the mode was sound but there were several poor design decisions and technical issues that made it difficult to enjoy. Check out full impressions of the mode from last year.

In MLB 13 the mode is receiving improvements to areas such as navigation, the marketplace, overall balance, and how online opponent quits are being handled. Roles for pitchers, the ability to choose DH or no DH, and new maximum attributes that can be reached with some player cards are also being implemented. Though certainly shaping up to be valuable changes when considering the sheer number of problems and overwhelming nature of the mode last year hopefully there is a lot more being addressed than just those things. Continue on for the video overview of Diamond Dynasty and leave any thoughts in the comments!
