MLB The Show 22 New Features: Online co-op kicks off yearly upgrades

MLB The Show 22 is finally here, and there is a slew of new features to make this year's installment stand out from the pack.

Sony San Diego gave themselves a tough act to follow, as MLB The Show 21 broke ground with a major Road to the Show revamp the same year that they expanded to Xbox for the first time.

With crossplay innovations pushing the genre forward last year, it's not a huge surprise they've pushed that even further with this year's new online co-op mode being crossplay and cross-platform.

ROTATION: Players will alternate roles in the new co-op mode

The new game mode allows players to play 2v2 or 3v3 in regular exhibition games or in Diamond Dynasty with a unique combined lineups feature that we've got more details on here.

The new game mode has also taken center stage in the brief MLB The Show 22 tech test, which aimed primarily at stress testing their servers ahead of launch.

With an open beta this year, it looks like Sony San Diego are trying their best to avoid the Early Access server issues that plagued MLB The Show 21 at launch.

When will more new features be revealed?

It looks like online co-op took the first position in their MLB The Show 22 new features lineup due to the fact that it had to be revealed prior to the launch of the technical test.

While last year they jumped to Xbox for the first time, the console additions get even more intriguing with MLB The Show 22 as it lands on Nintendo Switch and makes the game more portable than ever before.

An overview of how the game will work on that platform is next up, but there are a plethora of MLB The Show 22 new features on the way.
