This year’s installment of Sony’s annual baseball franchise MLB: The Show will be shipping with a long-awaited feature: online franchise mode. The mode will be available for both PlayStation 3 and 4 owners.  

The new online mode fuses the team-building aspects of franchise mode, such as scouting and off season contracts, and combines them with the customizable schedules and divisional alignments of online leagues. Franchise can be shared with friends online, and most of the features from last year’s offline version will be making the transition, including scouting, amateur draft, free agency, and CPU trades. When you create an online franchise, you will automatically become the league's commissioner, allowing you to customize the division's alignment, schedule, and more.
