Our new 3D animation and improved, authentic major league ballparks deliver the most powerful in-game experience yet. Better lightning, textures and detail immerse managers in an intense MLB experience. Player symbols clearly indicate game situations, along with more defensive shift options for human managers to choose from.
It's easier than ever for armchair GMs and managers to build their baseball empire; from in-game upgrades to roster and league management controls, OOTP 17 is the best-looking and most-optimized visual experience yet.
Building on its robust news system that reports on key events throughout your baseball universe, OOTP 17 now offers an automatically generated (and great-looking) headline and recap after each game.
Need to bolster the bullpen or bring in someone to create a platoon at third base? Players facing such situations can now define their team needs and expect other GMs to make trade offers accordingly.
A finely-tuned player career arc modeling system is better than ever, powering the most realistic individual athlete performance over the course of a lifetime. What will the impact of trades, injuries, managerial changes, and teammate performance be on your favorite players?

From important league news to key financial data, the upcoming schedule to where you stand, OOTP 17's presentation is designed to put you in the best position to succeed.
We've heard you! We know you love to use OOTP's powerful simulation engine - already the quickest in the sports strategy world - and it's now dramatically faster!
