The new March to October mode for MLB The Show 19 has been revealed

Posted March 5th, 2019 at 9:00 am

When Season Mode was found to have been removed from MLB The Show last year – a surprise that was left for consumers to discover only after the game had released – there were many disappointed that they would no longer have the simplicity and flexibility that it had offered.

The announcement of a mode called “March to October” looked to be a possible Season Mode replacement with MLB The Show 19. In some sense it is – offering an abbreviated experience when compared to Franchise Mode – but it doesn’t follow the traditional Season Mode model.

Essentially “March to October” takes an option already present in Franchise Mode and stretches it out into its own contained mode with some added elements and the elimination of roster and management responsibilities.

March To October is a brand new game mode for MLB The Show 19. In March To October you will take the controls only for your team’s most key games and moments. As you advance through the season, unique narrative commentary content will progressively and dynamically unfold the essential story of your chosen MLB club’s campaign.

User performance in these games will really count, as the outcomes of the games you play will swing a “team momentum” factor, influencing how your team performs between each played episode and the next.

You will be delivered from episode to episode with maximal action and intrigue, and minimal menu interfacing. It’s all about getting your team to the postseason and beyond. Can you elevate your performance to meet the increasingly big moments that emerge down the stretch? Your poise under pressure will determine the fate of your chosen team’s season.

March to October comes with more than 100 unique, team-themed rewards, earned by winning the World Series with your team of choice. The harder the difficulty, the bigger the spoils. Are you up to the challenge in March To October?
