For those of you who follow baseball, even casually, you might have come across or heard of the popular baseball video game franchise known as “Out of The Park Baseball” or OOTP for short, which is a long-running franchise that has been around for 22 years. For the first time, the franchise has released for smartphone devices and has been christened “Out of the Park Baseball GO”.
Out of the Park Baseball GO: A treat for the fans
It is often said that baseball is a game that relies heavily on statistics and management. Thus, it is no surprise that the OOTP franchise has garnered a massive following over the course of its 22-year run on PC. Similar to the Football Manager series, OOTP is a baseball management sim that, unlike EA’s MLB series, focuses on the more hardcore aspects of baseball management.
The games have been designed to cater to not only the most hardcore baseball lovers but also to newer fans of the sport or series as well. The series has been consistently well-reviewed on PC and this mobile port will act as an excellent way for even more fans across the globe to get into the franchise.
The game is said to be free to download on both Android and iOS but will require a few in-game purchases if players wish to access all of its content. The game features different “rosters” (also known as squads) from across Major League Baseball’s history as well as the latest set of rosters from the Korean Baseball Organization.
While a few of these rosters, such as 1921, 1977, and 1996 MLB rosters are free, the rest will require a one-time payment. You can purchase any roster between 1901-2021. The Korean Baseball Organization roster for 2021 will also require a one-time payment of approximately five dollars. The launch of OOTP on mobile may be considered long overdue but it has finally happened and follows a growing list of PC franchises or games being ported for mobile.
