Great news for cricket fans as the best (only) game is back with Don Bradman Cricket 17 hitting stores on December 22nd. The game finally launches after a lengthy demo period where they tested new mechanics and features slowly with the help of the community, a smart move to really get the gamers involved without any ‘early access’ nonsense. One of the best things about Don Bradman Cricket 17 was that they reached out to local communities to help localise announcers for grounds across the globe.
In terms of visuals, the game features improved graphics and photorealistic lighting and skin tones with more payers customisations also available to gamers. You can create players with the Don Bradman Cricket Academy App and share them with folks across the world. Given that the game probably doesn’t have licenses for players and teams, this community created treasure trove of players is your go to place to get your latest squads.
The introduction of a new net system also allows you to practice your bowling and batting and of course get used to the new mechanics. A new mode called Deep Career Mode allows you to join club cricket as a seasoned veteran or rookie as you look to guide your country to the top of the world rankings. Another new introduction and a first for cricket games is the introduction of female players with Don Bradman Cricket 17, all properly motion captured with the help of the australian women's cricket team. A great step after FIFA made a similar move to introduce women’s teams.
Don Bradman Cricket 17 is set to come out for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on December 22, however there isn’t any confirmation on whether the PC version will also launch during the same timeframe....
