OOTP 17 now available for pre-order

Updated: February 29, 2016

Our favorite baseball simulator is coming back for the 2017 season. We plan to have a review of it later this season once we test it out, but as for now this looks like a really fun upgrade to the original game. The addition of AI general managers who have their own unique team building styles could absolutely be a game changer. Plus, they added the MLBPA license this year so the game should feel a little more lifelike with real MLB players. This is the best baseball simulator on the market and we can’t wait to play it.

They sent us the below for release which includes a special pre-order offer.
