View Full Version : MLB The Show 17 - PlayStation Blog: Franchise Mode & Player Quirks

03-07-2017, 04:17 PM
After learning of Franchise Mode improvements such as Critical Situations, Player Lock, and Quick Manage coming to MLB The Show 17, a new entry at the PlayStation Blog provides the first details on Player Quirks (http://blog.us.playstation.com/2017/03/07/mlb-the-show-17-build-an-empire-with-franchise-mode/):


And for all of you stat enthusiasts who want our MLB players to perform even more like they do in real-life, we’ve got one more thing for you, and that’s our newly introduced Player Quirks.

Quirks are very specific traits assigned to a player based on real-life data which give the player a bonus when triggered. As you can see in the screenshot above, Anthony Rizzo has the Breaking Ball Hitter quirk, which means he excels at hitting curves, sliders, and other breaking pitches. When you’re playing as Rizzo, you’ll want to look for breaking pitches to hammer, since you’ll get a hitting bonus when swinging at these types of pitches.

There are tons of different Quirks for both pitchers and position players, and in addition to changing the way you go about at-bats, we think they’ll also change the way you construct your roster.

I have to say that this game is getting better and better. The quick manage and critical situations will move this to a most likely buy this spring.

Thanks for sharing, jaymo. I wish I had known about Quick Manage a week ago. I recently did a bunch of simming to get through my 2016 season since I only played 62 games. :(

Intro stream to franchise mode. It's a 2 hour clip but has a lot of good stuff.
