Big Ant Studios has announced the release of the Windows edition of Don Bradman Cricket 17 on Steam, calling it “the most realistic cricket game ever made”. Along with the game, they also offer a playable demo. The press piece:
Released on console last month, the game boasts an “unprecedented suite of customisation options,” and has been hailed as “the best cricket experience yet.” Players can jump into the career mode to take a young player from club cricket all the way to captaining his or her country (it is also the first cricket game of all time to have female players and competitions). Alternatively, players can jump into the game’s Cricket Academy, where they can build their local teams, cricket fields and competitions to recreate their own club league.
“We made customisation the core of the experience with this game,” Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said. “It’s always amazing to see what our dedicated community comes up with, and between the stadium, player, and logo creators, every player can truly make Don Bradman Cricket 17 their own experience.”
Players can also look forward to robust post-launch support, with patches planned to continue to update the game according to player feedback.
“We have one of the most vocal, positive communities in sporting games,” Symons said. “We see Don Bradman 17 as a platform that we’ll continue to refine and build on in the weeks ahead. The response to the game has already been so positive; we’re very proud to be able to support cricket in video games for the fans of the sport.”
