Cricket fans are hard done when it comes to video games- there simply aren’t a whole lot of games catering to them. One of the series that does consistently give them a good cricketing experience is Don Bradman Cricket, by Home Entertainment Suppliers and Big Ant Studios. And today, it was announced that Don Bradman Cricket 17 would be launching for Xbox One and PS4 on December 22, with the PC version following shortly afterwards, in January.
The headlining feature of this new game, billed to be the most authentic cricket game ever made, is female players. “We have built completely new batting, bowling and fielding mechanics based on player feedback. With Don Bradman 17 releasing right in the heart of the Aussie cricket season, we’re looking forward to players recreating the classic moments of the summer of cricket in their homes,” Big Ant Studios CEO Ross Symons said of the game. ”
We were overwhelmed by the success of our first run at Don Bradman Cricket,” Symons added. “To this day players from around the world play it daily, whether they are simulating their favorite test team matchups, or playing games with as little as one over each side. We think they’re going to love the enhanced career mode, refined on-field mechanics, and enhanced visuals and animation. After all, many of the changes came as a direct result of feedback from our most dedicated fans.”
Don Bradman Cricket 17 will be available for $60, and pre-orders are now live, at least digitally. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage and information.
