A new fully-licensed cricket title is on the way from Australia’s Big Ant Studios (Rugby League Live, Don Bradman Cricket).
According to Big Ant, Ashes Cricket has been developed in close collaboration with Cricket Australia, and is the most realistic and authentic recreation of the sport ever created.
That's partly because the studio has employed photogrammetry technology which enables decent likenesses of the complete men’s and women’s Australian and English cricket teams to be rendered in-game.
Ashes Cricket allows you to create your own players, teams, stadiums and logos, and to create competitions and types of matches, from a furious five over match to extended multi-nation Test match tours.
There's also a career mode that allows you to take a customised junior cricketer all the way to the ultimate dream of captaining Australia or England to Ashes victory.
“Time and time again players tell us the feature they love most about our cricket games is the deep customisation options,” said Big Ant CEO Ross Symons.
“We have produced a true Ashes Cricket game, through and through, but we’ve also made sure that our heritage in sports games remains true.”
Ashes Cricket will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in November this year.
