I don’t love cricket, oh no. I love it! Oh yeah! Believe it or not, I actually dig cricket. Now, I may not have any understanding of what the more detailed terms of cricket are, such as wickets, runs, fours and Duckworth Lewis, but I still enjoy watching two teams of men attempt to clobber the crap out of one another to get their ball past the goal lines. And it looks like we’re in for a new round of Ashes Cricket this year!
Ashes Cricket 2013 will be throwing a googly onto PC, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii U this year. 505 Games is behind the latest version of the gentlemen’s game, which will cover the 2013 Investec Ashes Series.
Which means that you’ll either get to play as the British, or the Australians (AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE! OY! OY! OY!). Still, if it’s anything like the last couple of games, more international teams will most likely be available for other versus options in the game. Oh wait, there’s no SA licensing for this game. Which means that you’ll have to play matches as Grey Sith, Machine Amplat, AC DC-Debeers and Morning Snorkel. South Africa does play in the Ashes right? Sports!
“We are delighted to be able to announce some of the key features for Ashes Cricket 2013,” said Ralph Pitt-Stanley, General Manager for UK & Export at 505 Games said in a press release sent to us by Apex Interactive.
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.
Are you obsessed with cricket? How’s that working out for you?
