The arrival of MLB The Show 22 on the Nintendo Switch is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2021. With the Tech Test now officially out, fans can finally get their hands on what could be the most impressive Switch baseball title yet. Here’s how gamers can access it on their Switch systems.
To participate in MLB The Show 22 Tech Test, you’ll need to have a valid Nintendo Switch Online subscription. Once you have that set up, simply head to the “eShop” tab on your Nintendo Switch home screen and search for “MLB The Show 22 Tech Test.” You’ll then be prompted to download it for free.
Gamers who wish to take part in the test should also know that it’s an online-only affair. While you don’t necessarily need an Internet connection for your console, you do need to be connected in order to access online features such as leaderboards and matchmaking. The test will also support multiplayer matches with up to four other players.
Tech Test Features
The MLB The Show 22 Tech Test is limited in scope but still offers some exciting features. It allows players to experience a few different game modes including “Play Ball,” which features quick exhibition games; “Franchise Mode,” which allows gamers to build and manage their own teams; and a special fan favorite mode called “March To October.” Additionally, players can create custom settings such as pitcher fatigue and rulesets.
In addition, gamers will also have access to a few rewards that they can earn during the testing period. These rewards may include items such as exclusive jerseys or diamond player cards that can be used in future versions of MLB The Show 22 when it officially launches.
