Two days following the release of MLB The Show 22, San Diego Studio announces a new feature that will be ongoing for the duration of the MLB season.

p>It's opening day in Major League Baseball, and San Diego Studio and MLB The Show 22 is fully embracing the return of cracking bats with a special announcement​​​​​. One day after launch, MLB The Show 22 had its first content update and then followed it up with a new feature that will last throughout the entire baseball season.

The new Supercharged event will take existing cards and give them a significant boost to individual stats as well as an overall rating. Fans of MLB The Show 22 will need to be on the lookout for which players stand out every night, as one player from each game will receive a Supercharged boost.

San Diego Studio will be working closely with MLB to determine which players are deserving of the Supercharged boost, basing its decisions on individual performances and impressive stat lines. The new feature will be exclusive to MLB The Show 22's Diamond Dynasty, and it does come with the caveat that the boost will only last 48 hours. To demonstrate what the feature will look like, Tampa Bay Rays center-fielder Brett Phillips went from a 73-overall to an 81-overall while receiving +30 attribute boosts to his Contact and Power ratings when facing right-handed pitchers, along with another +30 to his Clutch attribute.

On opening day, six players in total became part of the inaugural Supercharged group and received upgrades to their original cards. Tylor Megill (74-overall) of the New York Mets, Tyler Mahle (79-overall) from the Cincinnati Reds, Tyler O'Neill (83-overall) and Paul Goldschmidt (84-overall) of the St. Louis Cardinals, Bobby Witt Jr. (71-overall) of the Kansas City Chiefs, and Ian Happ (74-overall) of the Chicago Cubs all get bumped up to 90-overall and also receive a +30 rating boosts to three of the 17 categories. Three of the cards all play the same position and could be vital additions to a player's bullpen as they'll become some of MLB The Show 22's best pitchers for the next 48 hours.

It's important to note that while each player will be a 90-overall boosted unit, their card rank remains the same. Once the 48-hour window is closed, the player cards will revert to the original rating, along with the +30 boosts disappearing. For Xbox Game Pass users playing since early access, the extra four days of accumulating more cards may work out in their favor, as they had four extra days to collect cards prior to launch. The feature will be a season-long event, meaning Diamond Dynasty fans may want to hang on to those lower-tiered cards, as it's a real possibility some of them will receive a boost during the season.

MLB The Show 22 is available on PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
