How to pre-order MLB The Show 21 – Editions, bonuses, and next-gen upgrade guide

While it is objectively great for the game industry that the powerful PlayStation MLB The Show is coming to more and more platforms, the pre-order of the game has ended up being terribly confusing. In addition to coming to Xbox platforms, MLB The Show 21 will be available in five different editions. So here’s a simple guide to help you decide which one is best for you.

Date of publication

You may have heard that this latest baseball title comes out on April 20, but there are ways to play it before that date. With each of the Jackie Robinson editions described below, buyers will have full access to the game on April 16. These editions will be released for the Xbox and PlayStation platforms.

The standard version offers some pre-order bonuses, but includes the upgrade for the next generation. PS5 and Xbox Series X/S users, however, can play the current generation version if they want to save a few bucks.
