Cricket 24 Release Date Delayed, Set for Launch in October

Licenses: Cricket 24 will have more licenced content than any previous cricket video game to date, including teams and nations from all around the world, delivering the most thorough video game simulation of cricket seen to date.

It has also been confirmed that Pakistan would be added to the list of officially included cricketing nations, just in time for the Pakistan tour of Australia in 2023-24. Pakistan joins Australia, England, the West Indies, New Zealand, and Ireland in Cricket 24, with additional nations expected to join in the following months.

Cricket 24 will also include the Pakistan Super League, as well as previously announced official tournaments such as The Ashes, the BBL and WBBL, The Hundred, and the Caribbean Premier League. The game will also involve an undefined number of professional Indian T20 clubs. Big Ant’s upcoming game will feature over 200 players with full photogrammetry.

Career Mode:  Cricket 24 will include a Career mode that follows a fresh cricketer as he progresses from club cricketer to international star. The mode now gives players more control over their character’s fate. Big Ant has fully redesigned the game’s fielding controls to make them more responsive and realistic.

Cross-Play Support: Cricket 24 will offer cross-platform play in addition to local and online multiplayer. There are no platform restrictions when playing online against friends or strangers. Custom content like stadiums, players, and teams, among other things, can be shared across platforms using the Academy.

Owners of consoles like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One don’t have to worry about purchasing a game that is for a previous generation because they can upgrade their console for free to the most recent generation.

The game is available in Standard Edition to pre-order on GamesTheShop for Rs 4299 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.
