More on the Changes to Diamond Dynasty Mode in MLB 15: The Show

Posted February 19th, 2015 at 10:45 am


It’s apparent this year that SCEA is making a strong effort to turn Diamond Dynasty mode into a lucrative revenue generator. It has failed to be that for them in the past, due to some perplexing and confusing design decisions and poor online experience, while Ultimate Team in EA Sports’ games has become a massive force and grown exponentially over the same period.

Work done this year includes getting rid of the expiration of MLB cards and reducing “Dynasty” (fake) players to one per team that can now play any position at any time. Even features that apply elsewhere in MLB 15 – the addition of “Legends” and Universal Rewards – are in part intended to raise awareness of Diamond Dynasty and funnel some new players in its direction.
