Out of the Park Baseball 16 is nearing release and it is going to be the best one yet. If you have never played the game before it is simply the best simulation game on the market.
The OOTP 16 version will finally be licensed by MLB and Minor League Baseball meaning there are more features including official logos, uniforms, and more including historical logos. A release will be made to include the opening day rosters for 2015 once they have been finalized.
Not only that but the international side of the game is getting better as well. The new version will include leagues from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Cuba, Mexico, Netherlands, and Italy. This year, OOTP 16 is adding the Australian Baseball League along with several independent leagues in the US and Japan.
Some other enhancements include short term and long term goals for managers. Managers might have both “win now” and “win later” goals to achieve in order to keep your job.
The finance and coaching systems are improved as well. Finances will be more in depth to include things like season ticket sales and coaches will now have personalities.
There are so many upgrades to the game that is will clearly be the best version yet, and that is saying quite a bit because the older versions were awesome.
Here are a few screenshots from the new game:
