Breaking down the game’s special editions and bonuses.

MLB The Show 18 is set to release exclusively for PlayStation 4 on March 27, 2018. This year’s installment of the annual baseball franchise has New York Yankee Aaron Judge on the cover. That’s really all we know about the game so far, but honestly, Sony puts out a quality baseball product every year. So if it’s anywhere near the quality of last year’s installment, fans are in for a treat.

If you’re ready to preorder MLB The Show 18, you’ll want to know what editions and preorder bonuses that are available. We have all the information below, so read on.

Preorder Bonus

Preorder MLB The Show 18 / MLB The Show 18 (UK) from most retailers, and you’ll receive the following digital extras:

  • 10 Standard Packs
  • 1 Legend Card

If you preorder from the PlayStation Store or GameStop, you’ll get even more digital bonus items, plus access to the game starting on March 23, four days before its official launch. Sony seems to recognize that the need for video game preorder guides can get a little silly, and has done the legwork for us (and you). See the details here:

Now let’s look at which retailers are offering MLB The Show 18 for preorder.

Amazon

Editor’s Note: Amazon’s listings for MLB The Show 18 seem to just be coming online and look incomplete. The Amazon page currently does not list the standard Amazon Prime 20% discounted preorder price, the preorder bonuses aren’t listed, etc. We’ll keep an eye on these listings and let you know if they’re fleshed out over time. Amazon is obviously generally pretty reliable, so you’re probably safe to preorder of Amazon is your go-to, but if you’re an MLB The Show fanatic or just a cautious consumer, you may way to hold off or preorder from someone else for the time being.
