The features were carefully curated after feedback from the fans during a 3-phase beta testing which saw over 4 million players taking part in it for 49 minutes daily on an average.
Continuing its dominance over the mobile cricket gaming space, the franchise boasts of 143 million downloads and with the latest version adding to the hype. WCC 3 has realistic graphics and an array of new features for cricket enthusiasts.
Says P.R. Rajendran Nextwave Multimedia Pvt. Ltd., Co-founder and CEO, “We are delighted to launch the much awaited third edition of the game. We got a good response from the fans during the beta phase and we have made sure everything was on point before the launch. The franchise has been successful and we are sure that the third edition with all its features will continue to attract fans as we work on bringing fresh features in the future.”
To add the dash of extra realism, the game has been infused with simulation of actual cricket, updated gameplay features like brand new controls, animations, real-time motions of athletes and professional cricketers, advanced artificial, women’s cricket, a comprehensive career mode with over 400 tournaments, international leagues and much more.
Alongside, the League of Champs is a player bracketing system and dynamically scalable leaderboard in the game that slots players in a way that ensures higher degree of fairness. As players rank up by League Score, they gain higher rewards in a competitive system that manages millions of players. WCC3 uses artificial intelligence (AI) to track a player’s skills and dynamically adjusts difficulty for the player, creating a state of ‘flow’ that ensures players are always adequately challenged while not feeling overpowered. The AI balances aggression with safety based on the targets it needs to hit or chase. It smartly finds gaps in the field, and while bowling as well, it adapts field setups and customizes its deliveries to the user’s batting patterns.
The latest features which come into the game along with the launch are:
As a tribute to the changing face of women’s cricket, WCC3 will feature women’s cricket. This is a new era for women in sports, and breaking all the taboos the emerging popularity of women’s cricket is all set to stir the mobile cricket market.
Player Name Presets
One of the best things about WCC3 is the ability to experience the pure thrills of cricket without stepping onto a pitch or into a stadium! Now users can simulate country teams with regional name flavours for all their favourite teams. No more tedious editing is needed every time you want to play as Australia instead of India. With Name Presets you’ll get access to regional squads that are mapped to your own in terms of performance and abilities. Have a few favourites in mind? Naturally you can also further customize these as you wish.
Much as we’d love to influence the outcomes of real matches, for most of us it’s restricted to watching and cheering on your favourite side. Not anymore. Hot Events are an exciting game mode, a live op that accurately simulates a match that has just concluded. Think you can make better decisions than the losing skipper? Now you can. Replay the events of the match and take your chosen side to victory!
With all the lockdowns and travel restrictions, it’s hard to stay connected with the real world in a physical way. But through cricket you can. WCC3’s world tour puts you on a whirlwind path to glory by having you face off against the toughest cricketing countries on a play tour where you call the shots. Victors are rewarded with legendary kits and other goodies to further bolster their team strengths for the next outing.
Ashes to Ashes Series
Our take on an iconic series has made its way to WCC3. A true test of mettle for the cricket fan, play as your favourite side and battle it out in a time-honoured cricketing hallmark that has retained its popularity since inception. Victory here also comes with its own sweet rewards.
The game also features special features like international leagues, career mode and more which aims at giving the players a wholesome cricket experience, all in one title.
