On Sunday, Major League Baseball named the players for this year's All-Star Game. To celebrate the annual summer gathering of baseball's best, a fresher version of MLB The Show 18 is being released, while existing players will have a few All-Star activities to engage in.
According to PlayStation.Blog, the MVP Edition of MLB The Show 18 has been phased out of the PlayStation Store and has been replaced with the All-Star Edition. This version will include the full game, along with:
- 11,000 Stubs
- Mission Starter for Gold Player
- Mission Starter for Diamond Player
- 3 Gold Sponsor items
- 2 Gold Equipment items
- 1 All-Star Equipment Item
- 1 All-Star Flashback Item
- Jump Start Pack (24 Silver player items)
- 10 Standard Packs
- 30 MLB The Show PS4 Themes
- 1 Classic Stadium
Those 10 Standard Packs, in particular, may look enticing to MLB The Show owners. Fortunately, if they already own the game and are active PlayStation Plus members, they can pick up 10 Standard Packs from the PlayStation Store at no extra charge from now through August 7.
What else can existing Show owners look forward to? New All-Star missions are available right now, allowing players to pick up All-Star Flashbacks and Legends. Three online All-Star events will also pop up between now and next week's big game.
Those who still need to pick up MLB The Show can pick up the All-Star Edition for $49.99 or pick up the base version at a reduced $39.99.
