With the MLB The Show 22 Sizzling Summer program now in effect, there's tons of new content to unlock.
We've got details on how long MLB The Show 22 players will be able to enjoy Sizzling Summer and some of the top rewards up for grabs.
Updated - Roster Update arrives
While the bigger ratings focused roster update last arrived just one week ago, we got a simple transactions centered along with this program arrival.
A few Houston Astros and New York Yankees players saw their ratings increase, and we also saw a handful of new players join Diamond Dynasty.
MLB The Show 22: Sizzling Summer Program Start & End Date
No featured program lasts forever, well until the last one that is, and MLB The Show 22 is ready for a new installment to arrive.
Future of the Franchise has been going strong for several weeks, but the activation of Double XP marked the beginning of the end.
Initially confirmed by the in-game calendar, the Sizzling Summer Program went live in MLB The Show 22 on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at Noon PT.
It's similar in size and length to the Spring Cleanup program we saw earlier this year, though Sizzling Summer is a hair shorter and changed the bosses up a bit.
We've also now got confirmation that the Sizzling Summer program has an end date of Monday, July 18, 2022 at Noon PT.
This will be the first, and likely only, time that a featured program swap happens on a Monday, as the new 2022 All-Stars program will go into place just before the game itself takes place.
Sizzling Summer bosses and content revealed
We've usually seen in previous programs that only some of the top-notch prizes go to each player, but they've changed things up a bit with Sizzling Summer.
Like the Spring Cleanup program there are five bosses, but four of them are in Takashi Okazaki packs via the reward track and one is guaranteed for any player who reaches a certain XP threshold.
They've combined the strategies of the Halladay & Friends program and others here, so players will be able to unlock two of the four Okazaki bosses along with the Prime Fernando Valenzuela.
Diamond Flashbacks & Legends as well as Diamond Classics packs are tossed in this time, and they've added quite a bit of equipment which should help with Collections.
Players can earn up to 750,000 XP in this featured program, and here are some of the top rewards you'll be able to earn:
- 10,000 XP: Diamond Flashbacks & Legends Choice Pack
- 30,000 XP: Diamond Classics Choice Pack
- 55,000 XP: Diamond Flashbacks & Legends Choice Pack
- 70,000 XP: Diamond Classics Choice Pack
- 90,000 XP: Diamond Flashbacks & Legends Choice Pack
- 120,000 XP: Diamond Classics Choice Pack
- 250,000 XP: Sizzling Summer Bosses Choice Pack
- 300,000 XP: Prime Fernando Valenzuela (96 OVR)
- 325,000 XP: Sizzling Summer Bosses Choice Pack
Along with the standard method of gameplay XP, players can earn 30,000 XP towards the Sizzling Summer program by completing the new Grand Flag Conquest map.
We've already gotten confirmation that there are 8 Hidden Rewards scattered across the map with upwards of 16 free packs available.
