It’s one of the world’s best known and much loved sports, but cricket in videogame terms has been left lacking in recent years. Can the power of Big Ant Studios ensure that Ashes Cricket delivers a game that fans of the sport are crying out for? The time has come to find out!
Available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC is Ashes Cricket, the officially licensed game of one of the world’s greatest rivalries. Making the most of some unique photogrammetry technology, Big Ant Studios have promised a game that delivers some of the most realistic likenesses of both the Australian and English cricket teams – both on the mens side, and those of the women.
Choosing your own batting and bowling style is key to the success you’ll find in the deep career mode as you attempt to rise up from junior cricket all the way to competing at international level. You’ll even be able to create your own team of players – and umpires – before uploading them for the world to see, before participating in your own custom competition.
The addition of online play promises to ensure that Ashes Cricket is the most competitive online cricket game yet so if you wish to play through the glory of the Ashes, or just want to hone your batting skills, this is the game for you.
