Atari Brings Ashes Home

Atari and Codemasters combine to bring Aussie gamers Ashes 2009

Ricky Ponting and co will be donning their virtual whites to bring all the excitement and passion of the Ashes series to gamers, according to Atari and Codemasters.

The game will include the official players, kit, stadia – including Lords and The Brit Oval – and equipment from this year’s Ashes Series.

Said to deliver all the exciting, athletic, skilful and technical elements of the sport, the game’s comprehensive ‘Ashes’ mode will feature all five Tests played out in detailed recreations of each authentic venue. In addition, gamers will also be able to play Test matches, One Day Internationals, 20-over games and a series of challenge modes. The high definition current generation versions will feature full online multi-player as well as support for local multi-player games.

It will be available on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC’s consoles; a Nintendo Wii version will be released later in the year.
