How to Play MLB The Show 23 on PC

Along with it, we would suggest that you have a good internet connection as cloud gaming services can cause errors on unstable ones. With that being said, here are the steps you can follow to play the game on the cloud gaming service:
- You will need to first download the Xbox App on your Windows PC.
- Once done, simply install it and sign in with your account.
- Launch the app and on the sidebar, you will find the Cloud Gaming tab.
- Select the tab and search for MLB The Show on the app.
- Once done, you will be able to play the game on your Windows PC.
Since it’s not a full PC Port, there will be lag and stuttering while playing MLB The Show 23. Not to mention, having a good internet connection is a must to have a proper gameplay experience on the cloud gaming service.
Players will have to wait for the developers to come out with an official PC Port. However, since its predecessors too didn’t have an official port, don’t be shocked if the developers decide to stay with the Xbox cloud gaming for MLB The Show 23.
