For a licensed cricket game, Ashes Cricket 2013 proved to be a disaster. The game stealthily arrived on Steam last week and was quickly removed afterwards following an outcry from buyers who were not at all pleased with the unfinished product.
Tru Blu Entertainment found the time perfect to release their first official trailer for Don Bradman Cricket 2014. Cricket fans may look towards this with a glimmer of hope but whether it will deliver still remains to be seen.
The game is being developed by Big Ant Studios and features a day/night cycle with dynamic weather and pitch conditions. There is a first-person perspective available, with manual appeals and a decision referral system with virtual IR imaging. On top of that the game is going to have a fully functioning Career Mode.
Those opting to start a Career will control a user-created character who will play cricket for 20 in-game years. Your performance in matches will help you climb through five ranks, and will earn you in-game money. It’s unknown as to whether you will be able to use this money to further train and better your stats. We do know though that it will help rank you on an online leaderboard.
Don Bradman Cricket 2014 is being developed for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. A release date has not been announced yet but is speculated to be revealed soon.
