Don Bradman Cricket 14

Released in April 2014 for PS3 and Xbox 360, and coming to PC DVD and Steam on 26th June


cover

Player endorsements are a big thing in cricket games – Allan Border, Brian Lara, Shane Warne and Ricky Ponting are just some of the players who have put their names to cricket games in the past – all greats of the game and all doing their bit to sell copies of games, but no one really worried about destroying Shane Warne’s reputation with a cricket game. Don Bradman – that’s different. The Don comes with a weight of history, a legendary status in the cricketing world and a name that defines cricket perfection. Putting that on a cricket game takes a lot of confidence, and developer Big Ant Studios think they have the game to live up to the biggest of names.

The game officially released on April 3rd on PS3 and Xbox 360, and is to release on the 26th of June on Steam and DVD for Windows. See the game on the Steam Store here.

To make the game the revolution it needs to be to match up with the name, it has a long list of firsts and total changes from the past – becoming the first cricket game with a full career mode, a built in player creator and the first with the ability to save games in progress online – finally making it viable to play a test match online in a cricket game. There is also innovation in control schemes, with batting and bowling all totally different from previous titles, all adding up to the impression that Big Ant may succeed at the finer points that previous titles have failed at.

The Sydney Cricket Ground and Bradman Oval are the two licensed stadiums in the game with a further eleven unlicensed grounds included from around the world.

While the game is still awaiting a release on PC, you can practice batting in the nets of the Cricket Academy Beta. As well as being able to bat in the nets, you can also create players, tours, tournaments and unique match types, showing off some of the huge flexibility included in the game. Players created in the editor are able to be shared, including across platforms. The career mode will allow you to take your created player through a 20 year career, go on tour and earn your way into the national team or get contracts from clubs in T20 tournaments. Other features included in the game are the ‘Big Ant Review System’ implementation of DRS, manual appealing, stats tracking as well as stamina, fatigue, injuries, form, etc. as factors in player performances.

With the game now out, user created videos are now widely available – this forum thread lists just some of the ones available on YouTube. Pre-release screenshots of the game are available below.

Keep an eye out on our dedicated Don Bradman Cricket 14 forum where you will find all the latest news and answers to questions from the developers. You can also visit the official site of this game here or check out their Facebook page.

    Best of luck. Big ant cricket 13

  2. I want to know when this game is releasing?

  3. James Cook says:

  4. Aditya Patki says:

    preview of game looks superb. plus its gonna release on pc which is also very good. eagerly waiting for it…

  5. ShaFin Rahman says:

    CAREER MODE! Yes! Finally… :D

  6. Sharky says:

    This sounds really good. At last a cricket lover that make a cricket game. I hope the hardest level will be the hardest level of cricket ever. We do like a challenge. I’ve got no problem at all that I’m not talented enough yet to play on the hardest level of FIFA Football. I’m really happy to stick to my medium level that gives me a good enough challenge of loosing and winning a game. Grand Slam Tennis 2 was really a big disappointment, because their super hardest level was way too easy and Grand Slam tennis 1 was more of a challenge. For example, it should be almost impossible to break the ODI or Test winning streaks on the hardest level. The computer should be unfair at it’s best level when a player stand a chance to break the winning streak record. Otherwise the game would become boring if you win all the time. And if you one of those who threw a big tantrum when you loose, then you should stick to the easier levels. I just hope that cricket game-makers realize that cricket lovers also loves stats. It’s part of a cricketers life, these statistics and records.

  7. James Cook says:

  16. Rulz says:

    hAHAAH…NYC JOKE :p INDIA will not let u do that :P

  17. CricFan says:

    My Suggestions

    – Please include top 20 Countries in ICC rankings for International Matches with their Real names
    – All Stats and Career Milestones with all the world records and Stats

    – Bowling Actions of some of the popular Bowlers (Having different bowling styles)

    – Of course , Many Stadiums

    – And many to go ….

    – Please don’t make us sad, we hoped a lot from this game

  18. Ryan says:

    As the Ashes 2013 has been delayed I’m looking forward to this one.

  19. sai says:

    before October

  20. JasonTodd says:

    Stats that have the ability to be re-set would also be amazing.
    And stats and awards for bowling and batting separately so for those that only love to bat don’t miss out the the batting awards because they choose not to bowl.
    AND MUST HAVE THE ABILITY TO SIMULATE INNINGS

  21. IAMAWR says:

    Big ant studios I don’t know how to thank you. I had been waiting for the past 6 years and now here you are creating such a great game.Amazing! I just cant express how enthusiastic I am to play this game :D :D

    Please release the game by September. PLZ PLZ

  22. Mohamed Mifras Moujood says:

    super

  23. Jujubox72 says:

    Actually its before september :D

  24. Jujubox72 says:

    If there are a couple of things I would like you’ll to add could be,
    1) Road to the world cup, including all the Associate and Affiliate teams
    2) A tournament similar to the champions league t20, as in the uefa champions league, you pretty much get the top 4 teams from nearly every european country, I would suggest that if you’ll could use this, it would be really helpful. Plus teams need to qualify for the tournament, in doing so, players should chose the team that they want to represent in the clt20, in doing so, they should play a domestic season with that team, and if they finish in the top 4, they automatically qualify for the champions league
    3) Domestic seasons for all the test playing nations

    lastly, if you’ll could include teams like, Australia A, Bangladesh A, England Lions, India A, New Zealand A, Pakistan A, South Africa A, Sri Lanka A, West Indies A and Zimbabwe A as well as under 19 teams, thank you and all the best, so far ive seen many features od this game, and to be honest, its the best cricket game i have seen for a long time :D

  25. Raafey says:

    Why did they have to use this picture on the cover bradman looks too much like kamran akmal with a whiter face but other than the cover love the title and the REST OF the cover and everything else about this game good luck big ant!

  26. Raj says:

    Finally a good Cricket Game is going to be out. Cant wait for this. Hope it gets released in 2014.

  27. Amit Seth says:

  28. Jujubox72 says:

    Just a quick question, is big ant cricket 14 and don bradman cricket 14 the same game, or 2 completely different games?

  29. Kaul says:

    I am very excited
    Hope the hardest level satisfy and intoxicate me
    And it must be licensed by top 5 teams and technical gameplay

  30. New name for the same game.

  31. Guest says:

Hopefully they will be able to get licensing from all major boards which would really take this game to the next level.
