Ashes Cricket 2013: Dynamic Weather System, Pitch Deterioration and More

By   /   3 years ago

The upcoming Ashes Cricket 2013 will boast a new set of features, thanks to a new engine.

Publisher 505 Games announced that the cricket title will be running on a new engine that will provide batsmen the ability to place their shots in all 360 degrees. Bowlers will receive a new “line and length bowling system” which will greatly improve players’ experience. We all can recall how boring the bowling side can be in cricket games. Additionally players will also have the option of setting their own fielding tactics.

But perhaps the greatest feature of the game is the addition of dynamic elements that will have an effect on the course of play. The pitch now deteriorates with use and players with watchful eyes can use that to the advantage of their spin and bounce of the ball. Also dynamic weather conditions mean that the forecast will chance throughout the match. You may start with a sunny day but end up with rainy conditions.

“We are delighted to be able to announce some of the key features for Ashes Cricket 2013,” said 505 General Manager for UK & Export Ralph Pitt-Stanley. “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.”

Ashses Cricket 2013 is being developed at Trickstar Games and will release on the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC on June 21.
