Ashes Cricket To Land In Stores On November 16
Cricket fans worldwide can bring the biggest rivalry in Cricket to their video game consoles in time for the first Ashes Test
Melbourne, 5 October 2017: Ashes Cricket, the most authentic, realistic cricket video game ever made, will land in stores on November 16, ahead of the first men’s Magellan Ashes Test in Brisbane.
Ashes Cricket is taking realism for the sport to a new level, with photo-realistic players of the English and Australian teams for both the men’s and women’s squads. Game developer Big Ant’s proprietary photogrammetry technology is coupled with intricate, licensed 3D models of each of the famous Australian cricket stadiums that will comprise the field of battle for the Magellan Ashes Series.
“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.”
Ashes Cricket will be available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC on November 16. It will be classified “G” with an RRP of $99.95 for PlayStation®4 and Xbox One, with PC Steam pricing yet to be revealed. Pre-orders are now open!
