Description

Utilizing its experience in developing Major League Baseball titles EA Sports changes direction to develop a baseball game that is set among the ranks of the NCAA. College baseball features aluminum bats that can produce deep hits, as well as the sought after "ping" from the bat after making contact. Combined with all new swing types, players will have complete control to either protect the plate or swing deep for the fences. Also included are 128 universities from all of the top conferences, as well as 19 ballparks including Rosenblatt Stadium, home of the NCAA College World Series. The right thumb stick controls both the intensity of the players swings at the plate and the precision and strength of their throws. At the plate, gamers use the right thumb stick to first load their backswing and then fire through the strike zone at the right moment. On the field, gamers use the right thumb stick to control the intensity and accuracy of their throws, whether firing one to home plate or gently tossing the ball to first base. The enhanced Creation Zone feature allows for a more personalized experience where players can build a college program from the ground up, while the Custom Ballpark feature allows players to adjust the heights and distances of the stadium walls. Players may also choose between NCAA Rules and Summer Rules, in the latter using wooden bats instead of aluminum. Regardless of the style of play, calling the action from the virtual broadcast booth are the voices of ESPN announcers Mike Patrick and three-time All-American pitcher Kyle Peterson.
