MLB The Show 2020 FORBE

PlayStation exclusive baseball game, MLB The Show 20 received a massive patch last Friday. The 1.10 update fixed tons of UI and visual bugs, it also introduced the Mercy Rule in League games. Now leaving a League match mid-game should not be as punishable as before. The update also reduced the amount of XP players received from Play vs. Friends, Home Run Derby, and Retro Mode. This move was made to makes these modes ‘more in line’ with other modes.

The home menu of Team Affinity now has a progress tracker and text display has been improved so it doesn’t get cut off. Presentation and Bullpen Camera angles have been polished and multiple crash issues are resolved. The update also improved multiple uniforms and made several play-by-play adjustments.

Complete patch notes are mentioned below and on the official blog.
