In the 90s, PC was receiving all sorts of sports games. However, things changed and these days we are only getting specific soccer and basketball games. Madden and NHL are nowhere to be found, and NBA Live remains exclusive to consoles. As such, it’s a great relief witnessing Big Ant Studios releasing its latest cricket game, Don Bradman Cricket 17, on PC via Steam.
In Don Bradman Cricket 17, 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.
Big Ant CEO, Ross Symons, said:
“We made customisation the core of the experience with this game. 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. 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.”
In addition, Big Ant Studios has released a PC demo that is available via the game’s Steam page. We strongly suggest downloading in order to get an idea of what this new cricket game is all about.
