Only 1 more day before the MLB 11 The Show hits stores! It’s our pleasure to present the newest feature in MLB 11 The Show: Challenge of the Week!
Challenge of the Week is a fast-paced and fun arcade-style mode where the goal is to score as many points as possible. You’re the batter and you get thre outs with thre strikes per out. Your overall score consists of your points and Momentum (aka multiplier). The longer the hit, the more points you get. The better the hit and the more momentum you earn. There will also be weekly bonuses to help with racking up points. Challenge of the Week will feature the hottest batters and pitchers during the MLB season so check back to see if we feature a player from your favorite MLB team.
To play, simply go to the “Challenge of the Week” option on the main menu of MLB 11 The Show and select the current Challenge.
So what do you get if you’re #1 on the leaderboard at the end of the week? Real-world prizes! We’re talking about signed MLB gear, Sony Electronics, gift cards, the works!
Challenge of the Week #1 triggers thoughts of “Yankee Killer,” as none other MLB 11 The Show Cover Athlete Joe Mauer faces one of the league’s best, hard throwing lefty C.C. Sabathia. Week #1 begins on Tuesday March 8 at 9pm PST and ends Monday March 14 at 4:30am PST. Come out on top of the Leaderboard for Week #1 and you could win a Signed Joe Mauer jersey and Limited Edition MLB 11 Dual Shock 3 controller!
Every four weeks a monthly prize will be awarded to the player with the most Challenge of the Week points. We really wanted to give this winner something special for putting in their dues. Special like say … a 46″ Sony HDTV with 3D (two pairs of 3D glasses included)!
Finally, monthly scores will be added from launch until May 30th 4:30am PST for a chance to win Grand Prize #1, a Trip for Two to the 2011 MLB All-Star Game!
Each week you’ll get 1 FREE attempt. Additional attempts can be purchased through the game or on the PlayStation Store for just $0.25 per attempt.
New weekly and monthly prizing, leaderboards, contest rules and details can be found at the NEW home of MLB The Show at TheShowNation.com.
