MLB The Show 22 Game Update #4 Live With Patch Notes

A new MLB The Show 22 update is live on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X alongside patch notes. With the game’s fourth update, Sony San Diego has largely just made improvements and fixes to the game. In addition to the host of fixes and improvements though, the California-based developer has also removed some content from the game. More specifically, the update has gone ahead and removed check swings from the game when played on Beginner in order “to simplify the experience for new players.”

While we know everything the update does, what we don’t know are the various file sizes for the update. It’s safe to assume to the file size will vary platform to platform and that it will be on the smaller side given then length and content of the patch notes, but these two assumptions are the only insight we can offer at the moment.
