The hundred Caribbean Premier League, over 200 new players coming to cricket 19
Cricket 19 developer Big Ant has announced a new DLC pack for Cricket 19 featuring The Hundred and the Caribbean Premier League. The pack will add over 200 additional licensed players to Cricket 19’s roster.
The DLC will cost AUD 14.95 / â¬ 9.99 and will be available on PlayStation, Xbox and PC on July 16, 2021.
The Hundred in Cricket 19 will feature both men’s and women’s competitions and allow players to draft a fantastic The Hundred squad. Three new stadiums have also been added so that the eight teams of The Hundred have their home ground.
âThis is the full experience of The Hundred,â Big Ant CEO Ross Symons said in a statement. âWe went out and recreated three more stadiums in the UK, so fans can play with the whole competition, while testing their own managerial and playing skills to build their perfect squad.
âOur goal has always been to give cricket fans the full experience, and The Hundred represents an exciting new format for the game that we have been looking forward to implementing for some time now. This is also the first time that we have integrated DLC into a game of cricket. We have fans who have played Cricket 19 for thousands of hours, and they have asked us for ways to deepen their experience even further. We can’t wait for them to experience the excitement this DLC brings to the game.
The Caribbean Premier League component of the DLC will feature seven all-new stadiums.
A new free patch arriving alongside the DLC will also add a weekly skill challenge mode called “Test the Best”, as well as a new emoticon system that will allow players to send feedback to each other during online play.
Released in May 2019, the IGN review noted that Cricket 19 is “the closest to the real thing a game of cricket has ever been”.
