Ashes Cricket, the first cricket game from Big Ant Studios to be fully licensed, will bring all the action of the Commonwealth Bank Women’s Ashes and Magellan Ashes Series to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC in November., which is notable because that’s just ahead ahead of the start of the Magellan Ashes Test later in the month.
The Ashes rivalry will extend well beyond the boundary and into households around the world this summer with the announcement of a new cricket video game.
All players have had their likenesses captured using 35 DSLR cameras to create lifelike characters in the game.
Cricket fans will be able to play out this summer’s Magellan Ashes series before a ball is bowled after it was confirmed the highly-anticipated video game Ashes Cricket will be released one week ahead of the first Test.
“Cricket Australia’s new strategy recognises the growing role that gaming can play in reaching younger fans, and by working with the likes of Big Ant to develop products that meet this need we are positioning ourselves as leaders in the cricket gaming space globally,” said Sutherland in a statement. “The anticipation for the summer of cricket is building and this game will give our fans another way to be a part of the cricket excitement.”
The cameras take one million photos, which are then stitched together by an algorithm to create a player’s in-game likeness. There’s then approximately 15 hours more work required on each player before they’re considered ready to play.
