The MLB series on PlayStation is known for its amazing graphics, and for MLB 14: The Show, it might have topped itself on the new generation of Sony hardware.

Sony released eight screenshots of the game slated to be released on April 1 for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3, and May 6 for the PlayStation 4. The game remains the only baseball simulator available, as 2k Sports has stopped developing a competing game.

The images show vibrant uniform colors and detailed facial features. There are images of Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and Oriole Park in Baltimore, which have all been faithfully recreated.

"The PS4 is the most powerful gaming console ever made. With so much horsepower to take advantage of, we've made the most realistic, best-playing, most authentic baseball video game ever. Note the revamped lighting engine, meticulously rendered facial hair, and rich stadium detail," said a developer after releasing these screenshots.

The Topps Amateur Showcase, where players can choose from West, Central, East and International, is where the game begins. Major League scouts will evaluate the rookie based on three games, and then the Draft comes, reported Shack News.

Kirby St. John, the series' designer, said that scouts won't just be looking at stats in this year's Road to the Show mode. They will want to see how players react in certain situations.

"In past versions of the Road to The Show, it was always assumed your player was an A-Potential player, destined for greatness in the Major, and he was treated as such," he said on the PlayStation.Blog. "That all changes in MLB 14, as the new RTTs player will start out as a middle-of-the-road, C-Potential prospect with many unanswered questions about his future skills. However, over the course of the three Showcase games, that blurry picture will become much clearer, as the scouts will analyze your every move on the field. It is important to know that they are not just interested in stats. They are mostly watching your approach to each situation you encounter. This means that a game where you get three bloop base-hits probably won't be scored as well as a game where you go 0-for-4 with four well-hit missiles to the outfield."
