Running from February 23 until March 1, the technical test will enable PlayStation players and a limited number of Xbox users to sample a work-in-progress version of MLB The Show 21.
Participants will “play online to help stress the servers, try out online match-making with cross-platform play, and cross-generational play”.
While the number of PlayStation users who can sign up for the technical test is unlimited, the number of Xbox players who can participate is capped at 50,000.
Players interested in signing up for a chance to participate can do so here.
It was announced in December 2019 that the previously PlayStation exclusive franchise would be coming to “additional console platforms” for the first time as part of a multi-year extension to Sony’s video games licensing deal.
MLB The Show 21 was officially revealed earlier this month. Set for release on April 20, 2021, the standard edition is priced at $59.99 USD/$79.99 CAD/£59.99/€59.99 for PS4 and Xbox One, and $69.99 USD/$89.99 CAD/£69.99/€69.99 for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
Sony plans to offer an in-depth look at MLB The Show 21’s new features in a series of broadcasts taking place at the same time every Thursday for six weeks, kicking off at 3pm PT/6pm ET/11pm UK on March 11.
