Many new MLB The Show 21 Franchise Mode changes have been revealed in tonight's Feature Premiere developer stream, bringing huge improvements all around!
Let's dive into all the new things in MLB The Show 21 Franchise Mode.
Trade Metric and Player Metric
Franchise Mode will feature two brand new systems for evaluating players in MLB The Show 21 - the Trade Metric, and the Player Metric.
The Trade Metric has been built to take into account a player's attributes, contract, and performances. This will then be used to evaluate players much more accurately for trades, but it isn't the only system used to evaluate players in MLB The Show 21 Franchise mode.
Pairing with the new Trade Metric, the Player Metric will also be a new evaluation tool coming to Franchise Mode this year.
This system will give you a player value beyond just what someone will net in trades, and takes into account their performances and attributes to set a dynamic value for your team.
That's right, the new MLB The Show 21 Stadium Creator is coming to Franchise Mode!
You'll be able to build your team and play ball in the stadium of your own creation as well this year, adding a whole new layer to make your mark.
A new Depth Chart system in MLB The Show 21 will change how you look through your roster.
These new depth charts give additional insights into your players, including markers for players in their contract year, players who are on a hot streak, prospects that will soon come up, and more.
They will also allow you to toggle between years and see how your team will look up to 5 years in the future! This includes expiring contracts, growth, regression, and your projected budget.
Managing your money is an important part of managing a franchise, and MLB The Show 21 Franchise Mode is improving massively in this department.
A new budget system coming in MLB The Show 21 will make your finances much easier to comprehend, and includes a ton of amazing quality of life upgrades.
You'll no longer need a spreadsheet to really understand your team finances in Franchise Mode, and can get relevant information you need to make decisions when and where you need it.
