It’s no secret at this point that Microsoft has been going hard with money to acquire games for Xbox Game Pass, but this is up there with the biggest.
In its latest announcement, Xbox announced that MLB The Show 21 will be launching on Xbox Game Pass on day one on April 20th. This might not seem like a big deal here in Australia, but MLB The Show is developed by a Sony Studio (San Diego) and has previously been exclusive to PlayStation consoles.
It’s a big deal as it’s one of the best-selling games in the USA, and this marks the first time that a game developed by a Sony Worldwide Studio has become available on Xbox Game Pass.
With another thrilling Opening Day in the books, Major League Baseball fans around the world were treated to all the nail biters, dingers, and bat flips they could handle when teams took the field to kick off the 2021 season. But if you thought that was all the big news we’re bringing you this week, you’d be wrong!
We’re delighted to announce that MLB The Show 21 is coming to Xbox Game Pass on day one and will be available on April 20 for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as on Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) for Ultimate members. Both MLB The Show 21 Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S Standard Editions will be included with Xbox Game Pass so members will be able to play the best version of the game regardless of which console they’re on. And with cross-platform play and progress, you can play against others online, and earn and use content across the platform and generation you choose.
