You know the summer months are coming when the new baseball season starts. And with that comes the latest MLB The Show. Coming in slightly before the new MLB season starts, MLB The Show is out today in early access on Xbox, PlayStation and PC. The power of Game Pass is pushing this one along too.
Once again, MLB The Show 23 allows players to live out their baseball fantasies. Take in Franchise mode, which now features the updated MLB Postseason formats and a revamped Draft system. There will be new commentary and in-game presentations to give you the most authentic baseball experience yet.
New features this year includes the World Baseball Classic, which allows you to create your ultimate team from stars of the past and take on the other participating countries. And, for Xbox Series X|S owners, the Stadium Creator mode returns giving you the opportunity to create your own field of dreams.
MLB The Show is the third iteration to appear on Xbox Game Pass, following on from MLB The Show 21 and MLB The Show 22. Subscribers will be able to download the game at no extra cost upon street release, whilst a Game Pass Early Access Bundle for £41.74 ensures access today, ahead of the official 28th March release date. That bundle includes… Four Days Early Access for Xbox Game Pass Users; 2 Gold Choice Pack; 10 Show Packs; 1 Ballplayer Pack; Double Daily login rewards; 10k Stubs.
Early access for MLB The Show 23 begins today if you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition too, on the Xbox Store for £89.99. This not only nets you four days early access, but also the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game, plus a whole load more:

Baseball fans wanting to play through Xbox Game Pass for free will have to wait a little bit longer until March 28th, along with those who have purchased the standard editions. But hopefully our review coming soon will make it feel like that wait time has shortened. Let us know in the comments below if you will be picking this game up.
