As an Early Access release on Xbox Game Pass, MLB The Show 22 is now available to play ahead of its April 5 release, but is coming with some problems.

p>While the official release of MLB The Show 22 isn't scheduled until April 5, PlayStation and Xbox users have the option to purchase an MVP Edition of the game and get into the action four days earlier. The game can be purchased by Game Pass subscribers at a special discount, and it comes with perks to entice players into taking the leap.

Players who opt into purchasing the game at a special price will receive two Gold Choice Packs, ten Show Packs, one Ballplayer Pack, along with Double Daily login rewards and 10k Stubs. Unfortunately, MLB The Show 22 is undergoing some issues right out of the gate, forcing it into two scheduled server maintenance periods in two days.

Just mere hours into MLB The Show 22's early release on April 1, San Diego Studio was hit with several complaints regarding the mini seasons and marketplace functionality, forcing it into its first server maintenance. It's normal for a game to face some bugs and issues in its first few weeks, but the player base was nonetheless upset. Currently, mini seasons isn't functioning the way it should, as several players are reporting cases of winning games but recording a loss in its place, with some stating they received a "Did Not Finish" result.

We plan on performing server maintenance ~12:15PM PT (temporarily turning off match-making now). We expect marketplace Active Orders to be visible again after.\nThank you to those who submitted reports.\n&mdash; MLB The Show (@MLBTheShow) <a href=\"https:\/\/twitter.com\/MLBTheShow\/status\/1509964909148221445?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\">April 1, 2022<\/a><\/blockquote>\n\n"'};

The second area of concern is the game's marketplace, where players can use real money to purchase packs and obtain items and units for several online modes. Gamers took to social media to report cases of buying and opening packs, but the items they collect are disappearing from their inventory with no way of recovering them. It's understandable to see gamers showing frustration towards this issue, as units they buy can be used for modes like Diamond Dynasty, where players can collect rewards for completing sets while using them to shape a team to their in-game strengths.

On April 2, San Diego Studio announced another server maintenance to address both issues, as more players will be joining the game in the next few days. MLB The Show 22 hits the Nintendo Switch for the first time, increasing the volume of people jumping in and aspiring to build a quality team to compete online. There is a large amount of pressure for the developer to deliver on its promise of being one of the best baseball titles ever, not only due to it being available on all consoles but also because of a lack of baseball action outside the gaming world.

MLB The Show 22 releases on April 5 for PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
