PS4 Exclusive MLB The Show 16 Details Two New Modes: Battle Royale and Conquest

I’ve never been much of a baseball game, but I will be damned if Sony San Diego isn’t trying to win me over. According to a recent PlayStation Blog postMLB The Show 16 will introduce two new game modes: Battle Royale and Conquest.

Battle Royale is a more traditional PvP mode within Diamond Dynasty, where players will take part in rapid-fire, 3-inning game modes. After buying into the mode with in-game currency, players will go through a draft (as seen in the trailer below) and go head-to-head with other players for highly-valuable rewards.

On the other end, Conquest merges the traditional baseball gameplay with a turn-based strategy game. Yeah, you read that right. Pictured above and in the video below, players take on the computer in a takeover quest to conquer the United States via their fanbase.

MLB The Show 16 is available exclusively on PlayStation 4 on March 29, 2016. Check out the features in more detail below:
