MLB The Show 22 Preorder Guide: MVP Edition, Bonuses, Early Access, And More

Like last year's edition, MLB The Show 22 costs $70 on PS5 and Xbox Series X.


Though it's unclear when the actual Major League Baseball season will begin, the virtual season will get underway in MLB The Show 22 on April 5. More players than ever before will be able to take the field come Opening Day, as MLB The Show 22 is releasing on PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. MLB The Show 22 preorders are starting to pop up at major retailers, and as always, you'll get some bonuses with your preorder. There are multiple editions to choose from, including the MVP Edition, which has some of the best cover art we've seen in a long time.

Keeping with the same format as last year's edition, the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game will cost $70. PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions of the game will go for $60. Once again, the game will be available via Xbox Game Pass (and Xbox Cloud Gaming) on launch day, so that's definitely something to consider before preordering a copy.
