Get ready to smash some sixes with the first gameplay trailer for Ashes Cricket
Check out the first in-game footage from this upcoming Aussie-made cricket game.
Aussie sports tend to get short shrift in the video game space. Whether it's footy, rugby or cricket, the frequency and quality of games based on our national pastimes leaves a whole lot to be desired.
Thankfully, the folks over at Melbourne's Big Ant Studios aim to change this with their upcoming title Ashes Cricket, and judging by the recently-released gameplay trailer, the team is going all-out to produce an authentic cricket experience that will hopefully satisfy fans of Australia's other national sport.
Along with the impressively cinematic trailer, Big Ant is promising a most-realistic approach to the sport thanks to its collaboration with Cricket Australia. Not only will the game feature real cricketers and real grounds like the SCG, it uses photogrammetry to scan in the real faces of both the men's and women's Australian and English cricket teams.
Here's hoping the final game will buck the trend of so-so Aussie sports games and give cricket fans what they've long been waiting for.
