After teasing it last night, Big Ant along with Cricket Australia and England Cricket have today officially lifted the lid on a new Ashes Cricket game.
It’s simply called ‘Ashes Cricket’ and will release on PS4, Xbox One and PC. As expected, it’s coming out in November. Whilst an exact release date hasn’t been given, the Ashes series starts at the end of November, so you’d think it’ll be out before then.
You can watch the first trailer and read about the epic new features below:
Ashes Cricket is the officially licensed video game of cricket’s greatest rivalry. Bringing all the fast-paced action, big hits and skill that you see in the greatest cricket competition on earth, in both a more realistic and authentic way than ever before, you’ll be able to bathe your team in glory in the men’s and women’s 2017/2018 Ashes tours.
Courtesy of Big Ant’s unique photogrammetry technology, Ashes Cricket presents official photorealistic likenesses for all of the Australian and English men’s and women’s teams – it will make you feel like you’re right there at the live game. Star Test players have been fully motion-captured and you can choose your own batting or bowling style to make your game your own.
Big Ant’s most detailed and refined cricket engine to date allows for true 360-degree batting. No two players will play the game the same way! Other features of the most in-depth and realistic cricket game to date include:
A deep career mode that offers the ability to play as a star or start as a junior and play club cricket until reaching international level.
