LOS ANGELES — June 15, 2021 — Com2uS, the developers behind the award-winning baseball strategy franchise, Out of the Park Baseball, have today released the highly-anticipated mobile version of the game, Out of the Park Baseball Go. Managerial hopefuls can now take their favorite teams on the go as they run authentic baseball franchises from throughout history, with complete player rosters from Major League Baseball (MLB), Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) and more. Out of the Park Baseball Go! is now available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
 

“After 22 years of building out the most authentic baseball management game on PC, we’re thrilled to bring the ‘Out of the Park Baseball’ experience to mobile,” said Richard Grisham, Director of Business Development at GAMEVIL and Com2uS. “The mobile version offers an accessible experience to baseball fans who are new to the franchise, and it packs all the punches of the desktop game, offering unparalleled depth and a roster of the most notable players in baseball history. We can’t wait for players to step up to the plate and experience ‘Out of the Park Baseball Go’ firsthand.”

 

Just like the fan-favorite desktop version of Out of the Park Baseball, OOTP Go players have the freedom to manage every aspect of their MLB organization, from scouting, the draft, trades and free agency to managing finances, personnel moves and seasonal and day-of team strategies. Players can also dive deep into the details, deciding team lineups, pitching staffs, and minute-to-minute in-game strategy in OOTP Go’s gorgeous 3D game mode, or choose to think like a GM, overseeing their franchises at a high level. 

 

OOTP Go includes the official MLB rosters from 1996, 1977, and 1921 available for free, and all other rosters throughout 1901-2021 are available via in-app purchases. Additionally, Korea’s most popular sporting league, KBO, is featured in OOTP Go with the complete 2021 KBO league roster available for $4.99, providing players with a brand-new baseball experience.

 

It also comes with instant access to Perfect Team 22, the incredible free online competition mode in Out of the Park Baseball that has taken the baseball world by storm. Assemble, customize, and manage your team by collecting baseball cards from the past, present and future of Major League Baseball. Players can set strategy and tactics as they compete against tens of thousands players from around the world to see who is truly the best.
