Big Ant has announced that Ashes Cricket, which was only just announced, will be releasing on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on November 16th, just in time for the first test in Brisbane.
“We can’t wait for fans to get their hands on the game,” Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said. “We wanted this game to build on the years of experience that we’ve had in developing cricket games, and we’re thrilled with the results. Playing this game really does feel like being out there on one of Australia’s iconic cricket grounds.”
Players will also be able to participate in a comprehensive career mode, where they take a fresh, ambitious young player, and lead him or her through the ranks with the goal of eventually representing their nation in the Ashes itself.
“All the in-depth customisation features that Big Ant is known for are in this game,” Symons said. “and we’re adding the greatest competition in cricket into the mix, fully licensed, for an extra shot of authenticity and realism”.
“Every one of our releases builds on what we’ve learned in previous games,” Symons added. “We’ve taken fan feedback to heart and have brought innovations to the game that have resulted in a smoother and more comprehensive game of cricket.”
The game is set to take realism to a new level, with photo-realistic players of both the Australian and English mens and womens teams, not to mention fully detailed 3d models of the various stadiums the sport is played in.
