More MLB The Show 17 Details Revealed - Gameplay, Graphics, Diamond Dynasty & More


Game Informer has just posted their interview with MLB The Show 17 game designer, Ramone Russell, giving us 48 more details about the game, including Diamond Dynasty, smarter A.I. (as well as more less-than-perfect-but-realistic), new ball physics, the importance of animations, and much more.

They have also included a couple of screenshots showing off the faces of Max Scherzer and Anthony Rizzo from MLB The Show 16 vs. MLB The Show 17.


We have listed some of the details below. Make sure to read the full article here and post your thoughts.
  • The game has over 1,000 new gameplay animations, including non-perfect/mistake animations, which the game didn't have in the past.
  • Russell estimates that there are somewhere between 25-50 new home run swings.
  • Uniform detail has also improved, including a slider for sleeve length.
  • Russell says the team is doing something for PS4 Pro, but can't talk about it yet.
  • The old 17 heads used through the years are gone and have been replaced by 49 heads based on different archetypes.
  • There are 22 new facial hair sets, including some modeled after players such as Josh Donaldson and Dallas Keuchel.
  • The team is doing different body modeling for the game to represent more body types. This includes a new husky body type and sliders for hips, glutes, shoulders, and spine length in the player creator.

"Graphics





Click each comparison picture for a better look.

Some of the work done on the faces in particular include: Sweat effects, new skin tone lighting and textures, and eyes with more depth and life. The latter includes getting the eye shapes right. "Hopefully," says Russell, "we lost that ghost look."
The shadows on players' faces when wearing caps were faked last year, but in 17 they are from real lighting sources.
Uniform detail has also improved, including a slider for sleeve length.
Russell says the team is doing something for PS4 Pro, but can't talk about it yet.
The screens above and their noticeable detail aren't the product of new face scans. The improvements are inherent in the work done this year. Face scans in general are done during spring training and implemented in the following year.
The grass patterns in 2017 are no longer faked like in 2016. They change realistically depending the camera angle and how the light is striking the field.
More licensed equipment has been added.
Player Creation

The old 17 heads used through the years are gone and have been replaced by 49 heads based on different archetypes. "You won't see any more of those monsters," says Russell.
There are 22 new facial hair sets, including some modeled after players such as Josh Donaldson and Dallas Keuchel.
The number of hair styles has been expanded (mullets, mohawks, rat tails, African-American hairstyle types, etc,), including old-school hairstyles.
The team is doing different body modeling for the game to represent more body types. This includes a new husky body type and sliders for hips, glutes, shoulders, and spine length in the player creator.
Player-specific animations can be mixed and matched, so you could have one guy's home run celebration with another's batting stance."

Yes! Yes! To all of this! So many legacy issues got attention!

Thank you, I am a happy man-boy

I would take that one with a caveat - we know there are two new voices joining the team. So a decent chunk of that is likely to get them up to speed with with the rest of the crew (or replacing them - maybe Lyons, Karros, or Allegri are gone). It should definitely make the game sound more fresh, though - no mistake about that.
