First patch out now for MLB The Show 16 and it includes a significant bonus

Posted April 8th, 2016 at 2:00 pm


The first patch for MLB The Show 16 has been pushed live on PlayStation 4. The update includes some bug fixes that have been rushed out to better improve the experience, as it’ll take some more time before a patch in response to community feedback can make it out.

Online gameplay softlock addressed: the game will no longer get into a pickoff state when a pitch is in flight or when a ball is in play.

Extensive work has been done to address the “Challenge failed” issue on PS4.

Fixed an issue where the game would soft lock (freeze) while a user on offense calls a timeout, as a user on defense attempts to pick off a runner on 1st.

Fixed an issue where the game would soft lock (freeze) when attempting to access Pitcher Attributes during an at bat with the score bar display option turned off.

Accounts in PS EU territories should now be able to purchase Stubs within game.

Additionally, in an attempt to make good on how the game has slowed to a crawl in primetime hours due to servers being overloaded, everyone has received 5,000 Stubs and a 10 Pack Bundle. That’s about $15 worth of value based on the in-game currency system. The bonus Stubs and packs are expected to be in all accounts by Tuesday.
