The world’s most famous cricket tournament is coming to console and PC next month.
Melbourne-based developer Big Ant Studios has confirmed that Ashes Cricket will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 16, 2017.
Using the studio’s proprietary photogrammetry technology, the game will include photo-realistic representations of the English and Australian teams for both the men’s and women’s squads. Ashes Cricket will also featured licensed 3D models of each Australian cricket stadium used in the forthcoming Magellan Ashes Series.
Ross Symons, chief executive officer at Big Ant Studios, said in a press statement:
“We can’t wait for fans to get their hands on the game. 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.”
According to Symons, the game builds upon their previous Don Bradman Cricket, and Big Bash cricket games.
“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 also will include a new career mode, in which players can create their own cricket star and play through the ranks before representing their home nation at the Ashes. Here’s a selection of screenshots from the game.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
