What’s new in 'MLB The Show 23' Diamond Dynasty?

While anyone can jump into Diamond Dynasty and start having fun, MLB The Show veterans will notice a few big changes in MLB The Show 23. For one, you’ll have to contend with Sets and Seasons. Seasons will last around two months, with Card Sets rotating out at the end of each Season. This means you’ll have to alter your roster periodically to account for player departures and new arrivals – so you can’t get complacent with your scouting.

There’s also a versatile new Wild Card Slot, giving you a chance to add a player to your roster without any restrictions based on the current season. On top of that, you’ll get a chance to unlock Captain Cards that come with special abilities that impact your team’s performance. For example, San Diego Studio showed off a card that gave a team a hitting bonus if it has five Detroit Tigers in the lineup. This could shake things up in unexpected ways and give you new ways to fill your roster.

Plenty of other quality-of-life changes are heading to MLB The Show 23, but the above tweaks to Diamond Dynasty are bound to be the most exciting. If you want a full rundown on what Diamond Dynasty will look like in MLB The Show 23, be sure to check out the extensive livestream from San Diego Studio that ran earlier this year, as it provides more than 30 minutes of developer-driven commentary.
