ESPN Videogames announced two new features for their upcoming baseball title [i]ESPN Major League Baseball 2K5[/i] today. Being touted as an entirely new game from the ground up, [i]ESPN[/i] will be highlighted by the addition of K Zone Pitching and Maximum Fielding to deliver a more realistic approach to baseball games.
Inspired by the same technology used on ESPN broadcasts, K Zone Pitching will allow players to target their pitches using a crosshair interface. Speed and movement will be all controlled by the player, but will come with the risk of affecting precision and control. Maximum Fielding aims to add a new dimension of control to handling your players by using the right analog stick to make some SportsCenter highlights on your own.
[i]ESPN MLB 2K5[/i] is on its way to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in early spring.
