MLB The Show 21 update for July 15 is now out and it’s basically a bug fix for the recent Online Head to Head update.

MLB The Show 21 might not be the only option for Baseball enthusiasts, but it’s definitely the most complete Baseball simulation game in the market at the moment.

Thanks to its launch on Xbox consoles, now even more players can enjoy San Diego Studio’s big-budget MLB title.

Following the recent update that brought some balancing changes and new adjustments for the Online Head to Head mode, the developer has deployed a new patch for the mode that fixes an issue in the Head to Head gameplay.

Also, the new update improves the animations of Edinson Volquez and adds Shohei Ohtani to Home Run Derby. Check out the full patch notes of the new update down below:

The update is now available across all platforms. It’s update 1.12 for PlayStation consoles and 1.63 for Xbox platforms.

MLB The Show 21 directly was launched on Xbox Game Pass for the first time ever this year. It’s yet to be seen whether the next entries of the game would follow the same policy, but the rumors suggest that Major League Baseball association in US has officially asked Sony to launch the MLB games on the Xbox platforms as well.

If it turns out to be a success in financial performance, we might see the series launching on PC as well in the near future.

MLB The Show 21 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.
