Description

The Boys of Summer return for another season of peanuts, Cracker Jack, and pepper games in MLB 2K13. Gamers can once again take control of every aspect of their favorite team in Franchise mode, while the career-based My Player mode returns to let them create, customize, and guide a player from the minors to big-league stardom. The MLB Today and MLB Today Season modes lets players compete in games and scenarios taken from the real MLB season, complete with updated rosters, commentary, and relevant stats. Player ratings change dynamically in between pitches, at-bats, and games to reflect the hot steaks, slumps, and favorable or unfavorable matchups that occur in real baseball, and gamers can tailor their approach to each opposing player thanks to authentic scouting reports. All of the modes make use of 2K's analog-based Total Control pitching and hitting, including the Home Run Derby, and the Postseason mode, in which fans can relive or rewrite the results of the 2012 playoffs.
