The original Super Mega Baseball will be given away for free to all Xbox Live Gold members as part of the Xbox Games With Gold scheme for October 2016. Probably the best time to announce its sequel then eh!?
Indie developer Metalhead Software have today announced that Super Mega Baseball 2 will be making its way to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2017. Building upon the original, you’ll get a more realistic presentation, new features and, most excitedly, online multiplayer.
New features include:
- Revamped Graphics: Complete with enhanced character models, new and updated stadiums, and a modernized interface, Super Mega Baseball 2 has a fully rebuilt look that carries forward the personality and spirit of the original.
- Player & League Customization: Build the ultimate fantasy baseball league with full customization of your league, teams and players. Choose the number of teams in your league and customize each team’s logos and uniforms. Then dig deeper by customizing individual player stats and appearance.
- Online Co-op & PvP Play: Play cooperatively or head-to-head with online multiplayer. Or take it offline and play couch co-op or solo. In cooperative modes, teammates alternate batting/running each time at-bat and alternate pitching/fielding each inning, challenging ballplayers to stay on their toes in every play.
- Refined Gameplay: Just like its predecessor, Super Mega Baseball 2 features solid controls, but this time around features more refined gameplay and a more realistic scale.
“With the launch of Super Mega Baseball we received an overwhelming and positive response from the community, confirmation of sustained interest in this style of streamlined gameplay in sports games, and some excellent feedback.” said Metalhead co-founder Scott Drader. “That feedback was consistent with our roadmap for the product and that has made decisions on where to improve the game rather easy – we’re improving upon the original largely with the set of features most requested by the community.”
We will of course bring you more, including a nailed down release date, as and when we have it. For now though, look forward to picking up the original game for nothing in just a couple of days time. You may as well have a read of our review too!
