How to earn XP

There are many ways to earn XP. Players can play the various game modes in MLB The Show 21 and earn XP after each game, including Road to the Show games, which can be a quick way to get XP quickly. Players can earn a good amount of XP (anywhere from 1,000 to 4,000 XP) per game by taking a few swings at the plate or throwing a few innings on the mound.

Additionally, players can complete Daily Missions, as well as Program missions.

5th Inning Conquest

Much like other Inning Programs, there is a special Conquest. This one will feature six teams and be in the shape of the Roman numeral V.

25,000 XP can be completed by entering and completing the 5th Inning Roman Numeral V Conquest. You’ll also want to keep an eye out for Player Programs and other Conquests, as well as the 5th Inning Showdown Challenge, which usually offers 35,000 XP towards program progress.

The 5th Inning Program is slated to end on August 27.
