Big Ant has released some brand new visuals and a trailer from the upcoming Ashes Cricket title. Two new images have been released showcasing the photorealistic players and this time they feature two female cricket players.
The two players featured are England’s Anya Shrubsole and Australia’s Megan Schutt. Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons said “Women’s cricket is rightfully growing in popularity across the world, and we wanted to do our part to
highlight the incredible athleticism of the sport through Ashes Cricket.”
Ashes Cricket Female Players
Both male and female players have been rendered photorealistically, using Big Ant’s photogrammetry techniques. Motion capture sessions have also taken place to ensure that the actions on-screen of each player are accurate and realistic. Symons also said of the inclusion of female players in Ashes Cricket;
We first included women players and teams in Don Bradman Cricket 17, and it was a feature that players really appreciated. The inclusion of the female teams gives even more depth and variety to the game. It’s been a privilege working with each of the players to further enhance what we can offer gamers with the women’s competition in Ashes Cricket.
Brand New Trailer
A new trailer for Ashes Cricket has also been released, but sadly it does not feature any female players. The trailer is a bit of a sizzle reel and shows off some batting, bowling and fielding as well as the characters faces and motion capture.
We managed to snag a few screenshots from the trailer which you can view below.
Ashes Cricket is launching for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 16.
