iOOTP Baseball 2013 [Universal App]

If all goes well the game will be released April 4th.

Here is the final feature list:
  • Real 2013 rosters! Every player on every major league team is available, along with the top 20 minor league prospects for each team. Major league player ratings are based on PECOTA by Baseball Prospectus, the best player projection system today.
  • Unlock exciting achievements
  • Import custom ballpark images through iTunes
  • Redesigned interface
  • Improved play-by-play commentary and news stories
  • Brand new trading AI
  • Recoded & much more realistic player creation
  • New player development system
  • Improved roster & contract negotiation AI
  • Historical career play with real rookie import each season (requires successive years via in-App purchase)
  • Universal build, the iPad HD version is included for free!
  • Plenty of small tweaks & improvements

Here are a few screenshots from the new GUI:










One of the new features are custom ballpark pics. They are easy to use (no 3rd party tool needed, just iTunes!) and make the game much cooler (Disclaimer: the used ballpark pic below is not part of iOOTP 2013, I just used one from a OOTP user-created ballpark pack!):

Seriously excited for this one. Makes me super excited for the season to start! I am going through iOOTP 2012 again just in anticipation.

Thanks for the new features. I've been wanting a few of those, and the ballpark images on top of being able to customize icons is awesome! Can't wait to import all of that and play it while listening to the At Bat app.

Between the other two versions of this game i have put in over 500 years of baseball. Instabuy for me....my only hope is that the red sox prospects have been rated well. I always hate when my favorite prospect is only a 3 star potential. Bogarts, bradley jr, and middlebrooks all better be at least a 4 hopefully a 4.5

Unfamiliar with this franchise, but the game certainly looks right up my alley considering it has real baseball teams with real players! I'll definitely buy it!

Love the historical play with draft classes, but where's the online league play? Seems strange not to offer this on a mobile app.

my feelings exactly. The amount of hours I have dumped into the game is immense. I pretty much sim everything and just do the outside managing, trading, drafting, signing etc..
Nothing feels better than getting that 20 year old 5 star pitcher from another team. I wonder with the new trading AI how hard that'll be.
