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.
