MLB Manager 2018’s core features include:
Three game modes:Major League: Mobile managers guide their favorite Major League Baseball teams through the 2018 season and beyond
Fictional: A fresh customizable world full of fictional players, providing a unique challenge each time
In Historic Major League mode, real players show up in the draft when they made their actual Major League debuts, assuming the user owns those seasons.
Managerial options that enable players to set lineups, pitching rotations, and depth charts before taking the field to make in-game calls, including when to issue hit-and-run and steal signs, how to configure the defense, when to pull pitchers and put in pinch-hitters, and more.
Players can also let the computer handle those decisions and set a series of sliders that dictate overall strategies, such as aggressiveness on the base paths, how often to pitch around batters, and more. They can simulate the season a day or a week at a time, jumping back in to manage games whenever they want. A Simulate to Date X function allows players to simulate to a specific date, with a Don’t Disturb option that enables uninterrupted long-term sims.
A play-by-play text stream that describes what’s happening on the field during the game, making it feel like a radio broadcast.
An in-depth financial system that allows players to unleash their inner GMs. Are they looking for undervalued players who might help the team win while keeping payroll low, or are they free-wheeling spenders seeking high-profile free agents for the big win?
Players oversee trades, negotiate contract extensions, sign free agents, draft players, cultivate minor league prospects, move players between the active roster, minor league roster and disabled list, and more. A Shop a Player function lets them field offers from other teams, while shortlists let armchair GMs easily keep track of certain players.
