For those asking about Steam pre-orders, Ross Symons from Big Ant Studios has released the following message. Despite the “Nets Challenge” pre-order game launching on PS5/4 & Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, the “Nets Challenge” is still yet to launch on Steam.
Cricket 22 was officially unveiled this morning, putting to bed months, and even years, of speculation as to when the next cricket game would be released.
The announcement provided us with a host of new features that we’ll be able to look forward to once Cricket 22 hits stands.
One of the best announcements was a new and improved Training Facility. With it, a “Nets Challenge”
The “Nets Challenge” will be made available to those who pre-order Cricket 22. It will be available to play sometime in mid-October. The “Nets Challenge” will allow players to jump into the nets and flesh out their batting and bowling prowess.
Have a watch of the video below to get a better idea.
The major innovation here will be a scoring system, which will help you keep track of how well you’re tracking. Once your nets session is completed, you’ll be able to upload your score to a Global Leaderboard. This will be the best way, at least initially, to know where you stand against the rest of the world.
Importantly, the bowling controls have had a “big update”. So jumping into the nets before you load up a game in late November might not be the worst idea.
Cricket 22 will be the first cricket game released on next-gen console. It will be fantastic to see one of the best cricket franchises ever brought to life on high-performing, state-of-the-art consoles.
