If you’ve spent the last few years longing for a follow-up to Ashes Cricket 2009 then you’ll be pleased to know that Trickstar Games are hard at work getting Ashes Cricket 2013 ready for release later this year.
Due out on June 21st for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC, Ashes Cricket 2013 will be released just in time for the start of the 2013 Investec Ashes Series between Australia and England.
Some of the features cricket lovers can look forward to include dynamic gameplay such as deteriorating pitches and changing weather that can alter the course of a match. The game will also feature a brand new engine that gives batsmen 360 degree control over shot placement, and a new line and length bowling system that allows players to restrict batsmen by bowling to their chosen field placements.
Ashes Cricket 2013 will give cricket connoisseurs the chance to play through the complete 2013 Investec Ashes Series with official England and Australia teams, or take on the rest of the world in limited overs tournaments and leagues.
“We are delighted to be able to announce some of the key features for Ashes Cricket 2013,” commented Ralph Pitt-Stanley, General Manager for UK & Export at publisher 505 Games. “This game has been created with real cricket fans and players in mind. The new engine allows players to mimic a cricketers most important attribute, his technique.”
Local distributor Apex Interactive has confirmed that the game will also be released in South Africa.
