Following the early albeit unofficial release of Don Bradman Cricket 17 on the PS4 and Xbox One in markets like the UAE and India, publisher Tru Blu has pushed the release date of Don Bradman Cricket 17 forward. Instead of December 22, the game will be available from December 16. The price of Don Bradman Cricket 17 is Rs. 3,999.
In addition to this, it seems that the game will be making use of the PS4 Pro.
“The game takes advantage of the PS4 Pro’s increased power,” a spokesperson for the game’s developer Big Ant Studios confirmed to Gadgets 360. What benefits PS4 Pro owners exactly get are yet to be confirmed.
Unlike some recent releases, it’s also a stable game. We haven’t faced a single crash during our playthrough. There doesn't seem to be any obvious performance benefits on playing it on the PS4 Pro over the PS4 at the moment either. Though we have reached out to Big Ant Studios to ask if this could change.
Much like nearly every game this year, Don Bradman Cricket 17 has a day one patch. It’s around 1.292GB and according to sparse patch notes, will bring "Stability improvements". We played the game before and after patching and noticed very little to be different.
In our impressions we found Don Bradman Cricket 17 appears to make subtle yet crucial changes to a formula that’s served it well for the last two games. Whether this holds true with extended sessions remains to be seen, as does online play or new modes such as Match Designer. Stay tuned for our full review soon.
