Ashes Cricket release date confirmed for mid-November

"There is no competition in cricket that has the heritage and prestige of the Ashes competition", Symons, said.

Earlier this week, we had the chance to speak to Ross Symons, the CEO of Big Ant about the newly announced Ashes game, improvements that have been made to mechanics in the cricket franchise and what it means for Big Ant to now be developing and publishing games.

One of the reasons for the studio's bold claim is that they've used their "proprietary photogrammetry technology", which has been utilised to bring the Australian and English men and woman's cricket teams to life. Something you can judge for yourself when the game lands on PC, PS4 and Xbox One this November 16. A little bit of that is up to Nintendo - we need to get someone from Nintendo who wants a cricket game on their system and then we're up for it.

A career mode will be featured in the game as well, requiring you to take a young player to lead them through the world of cricket, eventually ending up at the Ashes yourself, not unlike other sports games like Federation Internationale de Football Association and NBA 2K. Every one of our releases builds on what we've learned in previous 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." he said.

The title has been classified as G for General and has a suggested retail price of $99.95 AUD on console. Pre-orders are now open! Big Ant has worked with Cricket Australia and England & Wales Cricket Board to bring out the best for the gamers. Will you be padding up?
