There’s no doubt that baseball isn’t the most appreciated sport in gaming (that title goes firmly to football), but the MLB want to cover their own bases this year by releasing R.B.I. Baseball 18 – promising realistic visuals, a whole host of player and ballpark likenesses and many modes for baseball fans.

Such modes include the popular Franchise Mode, where a player takes their favourite MLB team to the top, signing new players and managing trades throughout, the new Home Run Derby mode where you can challenge a friend in a no-holds-barred slug fest, and ranked and friendly online exhibition matches.

If authenticity is what you are looking for, and it is almost a must in today’s big hitters of sporting titles, then having over 300 digitally modelled players, hundreds of animations and all the 30 MLB ballparks to play ball in shows that R.B.I. Baseball 18 is not messing about!

A further 100+ playable ‘Legends’ plucked from history and the ability to import your in-progress Franchise to R.B.I. Baseball 18 makes the game a dead cert to consider if you want some baseball action on Xbox One.

Check out R.B.I. Baseball 18 on the Microsoft Store as of today for £23.99, or alternatively pick it up for PS4, or Nintendo Switch.
