Summer in Australia just wouldn’t be the same without cricket and, with the new Ashes Cricket game, we’ll be able to play it anytime.

From the Aussie sporting game legends Big Ant, and developed in conjunction with Cricket Australia, this fully-licenced cricket game will have more bells and whistles than a Big Bash final.

Coming for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Ashes Cricket will feature the Australian and English teams – male and female – playing on real Aussie grounds.

If you want more control though, we’ll be able to create our own players, teams, stadiums and logos. On top of this, we’ll be able to create competitions and types of matches. Then there’s the career mode.

“There is no competition in cricket that has the heritage and prestige of the Ashes competition” Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said. “We’ve worked hard to build on our existing experience with cricket to deliver a truly realistic game of cricket to our fans. Time and time again players tell us the feature they love most about our cricket games is the deep customisation options. We have produced a true Ashes Cricket game, through and through, but we’ve also made sure that our heritage in sports games remains true.”

Ashes Cricket will be pounding down the wicket and into JB Hi-Fi stores on November 16, just in time for the first Ashes test. Pre-order now on PS4 and Xbox One.

Here’s a teaser trailer. Meanwhile, we have a curious craving for KFC…
