It’s been a year since the previous instalment, R.B.I. Baseball 19, brought authenticity of the sport to the masses. Granted, it wasn’t so well received in other areas of the experience, but now is the time for the latest offering to put things right. R.B.I. Baseball 20 is here on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC, ready to step up to the plate and bat away any potential criticism. But what can we expect it to deliver?
First and foremost, R.B.I. Baseball 20 boasts brand new controls for batting, pitching and running controls. These include the choice to power up for a massive swing or merely play a safety shot, decide upon pitch types fuelled by real pitcher information, and a streamlined approach to base running. Furthermore, there’s a fresh approach to the camera perspective during pitching that’s inspired by a broadcast style. Whilst on the topic of visuals, a whole host of player model improvements have been implemented such as revamped hair as well as more minor details like eye black, pine tar on helmets, and stains after performing dives and slides.
Amongst the game modes available to delve into are the likes of Exhibition, Franchise, Online Multiplayer and Home Run Derby. Within these modes you’ll notice even more authenticity than ever before; prepare for enhanced stealing and pickoffs, superior MLB ballparks, tailored cutscene animations and camera angles, better crowd behaviours, and improved ball collision. Considering it also promises weekly updates to the rosters all season long, in addition to a whopping 165+ MLB Legends being included, there’s plenty to look forward to.
The only way you’re going to batter up in R.B.I. Baseball 20 though is by spending £24.99 over on the Xbox Store. Unless you’re on another platform of course, in which case we’d suggest a visit to the respective digital store you’d prefer to use. As always, be sure to let us know if you purchase it by getting in touch and sharing your thoughts!
