15th June 2010

Ahead of the NatWest Series against England's old rivals Australia, International Cricket 2010 is bowling onto retail shelves this Friday, June 18th. Codemasters® today released the game's launch week gameplay video featuring commentary by the legendary David ‘Bumble' Lloyd; the video is available to view now here>/a>.

In the launch video, Twenty20 World Champions England take on finalists Australia in the short format of the game, and play Bangladesh in a Test match accompanied by commentary from David Lloyd. The gameplay video also showcases Action Cam, the innovative new on-field perspective that takes players right into the heart of the battle, whether batting or bowling.

David Lloyd, affectionately known as ‘Bumble', is one of English cricket's most loved personalities with over 70,000 followers on twitter who receive wide-ranging updates from pitch conditions to whether the broadcaster has secured a curry and a couple of pints at the end of a long day's commentary. He has been uniquely involved at nearly all levels of the game, from Test player to England coach, umpire and Sky Sports commentator and is now making his debut behind the microphone for the first time in a Codemasters cricket game. He is joined in game by Shane Warne, Ian Bishop, and Jonathan Agnew to deliver the most authentic commentary in a cricket game yet.

International Cricket 2010 is the most accurate representation of the sport yet. Reflecting real life, players must adapt their playing style to the format of the game they are playing. Twenty20 games are fast and furious, and gamers have to take advantage of power plays where the field is more open to score runs quickly. In the Test format of the game, players must build confidence with both their bowlers and batsmen in order to build momentum and increase their ability to take wickets and smash boundaries.

Officially licensed by the England and Wales Cricket Board and Cricket Australia to feature official players, stadia and kits and complete with local and online multiplayer, International Cricket 2010 is in stores this Friday for the PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

9th April 2010

Today Codemasters is proud to reveal that England star Stuart Broad will feature on the cover of International Cricket 2010, coming this summer for the PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft®. To celebrate the announcement, Codemasters has today released the first gameplay video for International Cricket 2010, featuring Stuart Broad and other stars in action.

Stuart Broad is the fast rising star of English cricket and set to lead the bowling attack in this summer's fixtures against Pakistan, Australia and Bangladesh. A key member of England's Ashes winning side of 2009, his man of the match performance against Australia at the Brit Oval saw him take 5 for 37 in the deciding test as he emerged as one of the world's leading bowlers.

'It's fantastic for me to follow in the footsteps of legends like Brian Lara and feature on the front of a Codemasters cricket game,' said England star Stuart Broad. 'I'm a huge gamer so it's exciting to be involved with Codemasters, who have always produced the most authentic and realistic cricket games. When I'm away with the team tour, playing games on our consoles is a great way to pass the time and enjoy some banter. I can't wait to take on the rest of the lads - and beat them - in International Cricket 2010!'

'Stuart Broad has established himself as one of the most exciting players in world cricket and we're delighted to sign him up to feature on the front of the pack,' added John Szoke, Producer, Codemasters.

Produced by Codemasters and developed by Trickstar Games, International Cricket 2010 steps up to the crease with a range of innovations and improvements including a new player and AI confidence system. In International Cricket 2010 as in real life, confidence is key to success. In the test format of the game, gamers must play themselves in as batsmen and build momentum as bowlers, improving their ability to play advanced shots and take wickets. In shorter formats of the game, confidence can be gained and lost much more quickly as players look to take advantage of the pressurised conditions.

Other key enhancements include ‘Action Cam', the new camera that takes players right onto the pitch, and ‘Power Stick' which gives 360° degree batting control to ensure International Cricket 2010 will deliver the most authentic interactive cricket experience ever.
