Don Bradman Cricket 17 to boast the most stadiums of any sports game, with dozens of player-created stadiums already ready for download when the main game launches.
Melbourne, October18: Just a few short weeks after releasing the stadium creator update on the free Don Bradman Cricket Academy fans have already created some incredibly lifelike and personal stadiums, in advance of being able to play on them when the full game releases in December.
“The fan response to this feature has been incredible; we’ve seen people do everything from recreate their local pitch that they play games on with their home club, right through to completely accurate recreations of some of the most famous stadiums that the international teams play in,” Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said.
“The stadium creator was a major investment for us in terms of tech, and you can look forward to seeing it in other sports titles from us into the future.”
The stadium creator is a unique feature to Don Bradman Cricket 17, allowing players have complete control over the look and feel of their stadiums. From the size of the oval and stands, right through to the small details on the outside, such as coffee carts and turnstiles, players will be able to create any cricket field in the world using the toolset.
Then, once the full game has been released, players will be able to seamlessly drop the stadium into their game for play. An upload & share feature will allow players to jump online to access the creations that others upload.
“The stadium is a critical part of the cricket experience,” Symons said. “The atmosphere in playing on a local field surrounded by people sitting on the grass is very different to that of playing in an arena like at Lord’s.
“Don Bradman Cricket 17 aims to be the most authentic cricket game ever created, and that meant that we wanted to make sure that people were able to recreate the aesthetics and atmosphere of the game, and what it means to them,” Symons added.
In other news, the Cricket Academy has recently been updated to feature playable practice modes for both batting and bowling, allowing players to get a full sense of what to expect from the main game in its release later on this year.
