Major League Baseball 2K12 features a new dynamic ratings system designed to enhance the battle at the plate; revamped throwing system that makes fielding more realistic; new hit distribution system that allows for more varied and realistic hits; and an enhanced My Player mode.
2K Sports announced Tuesday, March 6, that Major League Baseball 2K12 is now available on the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, Wii system, PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, PSP (PlayStation Portable) system, Nintendo DS hand-held system and Windows PC.
This year 2K Sports announces the all-new MLB Today Season Mode that lets players complete an entire season at the same pace as their favorite MLB team. Using the MLB Today engine, fans can track and compare their stats and record to their real-life counterparts. Gamers can play through their team’s real schedule, one game a day, and see if they can play their way to a World Series title.
Developed by 2K Sports’ Visual Concepts studio, Major League Baseball 2K12 will once again feature the $1 Million Perfect Game Challenge. This year’s contest, which returns for the third consecutive year and begins on Major League Baseball’s Opening Day, April 4, 2012, elevates the competition by staging a live, eight-person single elimination tournament to determine who walks away with the $1 million grand prize.
The finalists will be determined by a dynamic leaderboard ranking the top perfect games thrown. Gamers can repeatedly attempt to improve their position on the leaderboard through April 30, 2012. For more on this year’s Perfect Game Challenge, visit facebook.com/mlb2k.
