MLB The Show 22 is ready to hit Xbox Game Pass, and there's now an exclusive Early Access Bundle available to subscribers.
We've got all the details on what you'll get with the MLB The Show 22 Xbox Game Pass Early Access Bundle and how it works.
MLB The Show 22 Xbox Game Pass Early Access Bundle
If you're itching to play MLB The Show 22 but are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, there's a challenging dilemma for some players.
While the game itself will be free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers, the only way to snag Early Access and play four days early had previously been to buy the full MVP or Digital Deluxe Edition of the game.
However, that's all changed now with the release of the MLB The Show 22 Xbox Game Pass Early Access Bundle.
The bundle is available to pre order now on the Microsoft Store, and it could be exactly what some fans have been wanting.
If you're an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can spend $50 (in addition to your monthly Game Pass subscription fee) in order to secure a flurry of rewards and Early Access.
Players who order this will receive the following:
- Four Days Early Access
- 2 Gold Choice Packs
- 10 The Show Packs
- 1 Ballplayer Pack
- Double Daily Login Rewards
- 10k Stubs
Together, those are almost all the rewards you'd get for dropping a full $85 on the MVP Edition of MLB The Show 22.
The countdown for Early Access is already on, and we've got more details here on exactly when the game will unlock.
What if MLB The Show 22 leaves Xbox Game Pass?
Of course, like many discounts and special access bundles, there's always the worry of "what's the catch?"
Well, with the MLB The Show 22 Xbox Game Pass Early Access Bundle the catch is that your access to the game remains permanently linked to Xbox Game Pass.
That means if you are no longer a subscriber, or if MLB The Show 22 is removed from their service in the future, you will lose access to the game itself.
However, the latter possibility isn't as worrisome as it may appear, as MLB The Show 21 has yet to be removed from Xbox Game Pass and these titles appear to be set for the long haul.
However, as is stressed in the Microsoft Store listing, it is not recommended that people who aren't Xbox Game Pass subscribers buy this bundle, as without that subscription you won't be able to play the game at all.
