Ballistic Baseball focuses on the age-old rivalry between pitcher and batter in a stylised yet realistic battle to win the inning. The strategy begins off the field, with players selecting their offensive and defensive rosters. Players’ skills and strategies are then put to the test as they take control of their pitchers and batters in play. Ballistic Baseball is a real-time multiplayer arcade experience allowing to play against friends in Player versus Player, online duels. Players see and react to their opponent’s actions, all in real time. Further expanding the field of players is robust cross-platform play, allowing players on iOS, Apple TV and Mac platforms to play against the other or to track progress as they switch devices. Game Center features such as achievements and balanced matchmaking have also been implemented to create a fun and competitive experience.
Ballistic Baseball will be launching on Apple Arcade on September, 19th.
