Casey Powell Lacrosse sequel releasing in March

Posted February 23rd, 2018 at 6:30 am

Casey Powell Lacrosse 16 was one of the most pleasant surprises of 2016 in sports gaming. While it lacked licensing and carried with it a relatively hefty $50 price tag, accessible and enjoyable gameplay plus a healthy creation suite with file sharing that allowed for replacing the default teams with real Major League Lacrosse and college teams helped to overcome that. The game is currently available as part of the Xbox Game Pass subscription service on Xbox One. You can check out my review from two years ago here.

Publisher Big Ant Studios has now announced Casey Powell Lacrosse 18 which is set to release digitally on March 13 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

“Lacrosse has been one of America’s fastest growing sports for the last decade, and now that matches are being streamed live on Twitter and other platforms, we’re seeing interest in this great sport grow worldwide,” Big Ant Studios CEO, Ross Symons, said. “We were proud with what we did with the original Casey Powell Lacrosse, and the team have loved jumping back into the sport, building on the feedback from fans of the original, and enhancing the experience in every way for this new release.””

New features announced include completely reworked faceoff, shot, stick and dodging controls, enhanced AI that responds to the complex 6v6 tactics, new motion captured animations, and the ability to create stadiums and logos.
