Straight away, viewers ought to discover the design crew’s option to as soon as once more comply with the Topps card artwork fashion. It’s not precisely the identical because the Topps Collection 1 set from this yr, but it surely has some comparable traits. Time will inform if it’s tinkered with earlier than launch. It’s a crispy design with an old-fashioned banner layover that includes the participant’s title and minimalist aptitude. San Diego Studio and Topps have partnered on card artwork for just a few years now, and that pattern seems to be persevering with this yr.

Probably the most important change to the precise recreation and the way it performs could also be the way you earn progress towards packages. There now seems to be an SDS model of a “battle go” to unlock issues as you go. In impact, the Inning Applications already have been a battle go of types, but it surely now seems like a extra pronounced construction. This might additionally slot in with the best way NBA 2K modified MyTeam mode this yr to go that route as effectively. It’s labored effectively in 2K, and we predict it’s a a great side to steal from Fortnite and the opposite progenitors of the idea.
From right here, the wording is rather less clear, however SDS could also be hinting at two new modifications to the development system as effectively. Gamers might have the power to work their manner up the reward chain this season by taking part in strictly offline if they need — and presumably on-line as effectively. In concept, you may do that at occasions final yr with sure packages, however normally it was simpler to combine and match offline/on-line to get the celebrities for the main Inning Applications. Moreover, it appears the main target is now on a common XP bucket relatively than particular duties and gaining “stars” via particular missions.
In different phrases, it appears SDS is pulling again a bit from the thought of “inning stars” and going simply to a extra uncooked XP route. If the XP you collect is common — which, once more, SDS appears to be hinting at right here a bit — then like together with your Highway to the Present character, any XP you earn in modes like franchise or RttS would apply to the present Diamond Dynasty program as effectively. We’d assume there’ll nonetheless be missions and challenges that get you extra XP than different duties, but when that is one other option to get individuals taking part in extra modes in The Present, then it’s a great idea. In spite of everything, we all know tons of individuals have scoped out March to October to snag additional goodies in Diamond Dynasty.
Once more, not a lot new information on this teaser video, but it surely does test the field for SDS releasing a brand new video each Tuesday till March.
In keeping with the unique weblog submit from SDS, we are able to anticipate a brand new video each Tuesday and Thursday. Nonetheless, we didn’t get one final Thursday (the franchise video). We’ll see if they offer us another teaser this week earlier than we soar into the month of March. At the moment, we’ll be getting extra complete characteristic movies type San Diego Studio each Thursday showcasing a unique nook of MLB The Present 21.
