New Immortals, Free Ted Williams, Future Stars, and Roster Update

We recommend watching the Sept. 20th Developer Live Stream for details about the new Immortals and the latest content. You can view it here

The three players in the Immortals Program are Mike Trout, Dennis Eckersley and George Brett. Here are the quick facts you need to know:

  • New Immortals are tied to the Future Stars, Finest and Postseason programs
  • Completing Future Stars gives you 40 percent progress and unlocks Immortal George Brett
  • You don’t have to do all of the Future Stars to get these Immortals
  • You can wait for the Finest (late October) or Postseason (mid-November) to come out and do parts of each to earn the newest Immortals. There’s more than 100 percent available.

 

More Immortals are on the way in Ranked Seasons, Events and in the Ticket Counter. Stay tuned for more details as the Major League Baseball Postseason begins.

The Postseason Program based on this year’s Postseason will come out after the World Series ends, likely in mid-November. Either one of those Programs will provide the remaining progress needed to unlock Immortals Eckersley and Trout.

Q: How many more attribute Roster Updates are remaining this year?
A: We have two more planned: one on October 5th after the regular season ends, and another in November after the World Series ends to reflect Postseason performances.

A: Look for details in-game starting Monday, October 1, when the new Ranked Season begins at midnight ET. That first week of October will be loaded with new content including, Postseason Events, Monthly Awards and a Postseason Equipment Collector Program.
