When a press event is arranged less than a month before a game is due to be released, it's to be hoped that there'll be extensive hands-on opportunities with a build of the game in question that's pretty close to being finished and going gold. You might, too, be hoping that a previously unseen aspect of the game might finally be unveiled, that there'd be plenty of fresh news and juicy new tidbits of information to gobble down and fashion into headlines.

Given that we had seen absolutely nothing of Ashes Cricket 2013 until a few days ago, anything beyond "this is a cricket game" was going to be new information.

Cricket games are tricky things to pull off, particularly given the fact that matches in real-life can last for the best part of a week. The Brian Lara series was always excellent at capturing the flashy side of things, providing a welcome arcade-ish slant on the game, and making it the prime choice for multiplayer shenanigans.

Ashes Cricket 2013 Finally Gets Some Screens

Ashes Cricket 2013 is out in less than a month, not that you'd really know. There's been no gameplay footage, no meaningful trailers, no hands-on (not even at the event we attended earlier this month). We really have no idea what it looks like...

Until now.
