We're beginning to see more content about MLB 2K13 every day. First we saw the official trailer, and today 2K Sports dropped the trailer for their popular My Player mode.

That said, we still don't have a ton of information about what's actually new in the game.

This trailer serves more as an announcement or confirmation that the mode will still appear in the new game. Take a look at the video below.

The trailer is narrated by the voices of MLB 2K's Gary Thorne, John Kruk and Steve Phillips, and they basically discuss the concept of My Player, which is a concept 2K Sports helped revolutionize with the MLB 2K and NBA 2K Series.

For those that are unaware of what this mode offers, it allows a gamer to create a player from scratch and take him through an entire baseball career.

You can pick the position, height. weight, skill-level and other attributes for your player. You start off in the minor leagues and attempt to work your way through the majors to hopefully become a mega star.

The primary focus is the same, but we're left to speculate on what the improvements could be, or if this will be a more refined version of the mode we played in MLB 2K12.

One enhancement I would love to see is the option to be drafted by a team as opposed to being able to select my destination. This would add to the realism.

Aspiring prospects don't get an opportunity to choose their destination, so it would be great to have that aspect of the concept available.

The NBA 2K series has done a great job of actually bringing in off-the-court activities and storylines. I would love to see something like that in MLB 2K's My Player.

Will we get any of this from MLB 2K13, we can't say for sure just yet. With information at a premium, we may have to wait for the official release on March 5 for the final verdict.
