Snooker 19is now available on Xbox One, marking the start of a new era for fans after almost a decade without an officially licensed snooker game. Ãƒ¢€” we’re incredibly excited to share the official World Snooker videogame with players across the world. Jump in now, just in time for the start of the Betfred World Championships, and you’ll be able to play along in real-time online for the duration of the tournament.
The teams here at Ripstone and Lab42 have been working extremely hard alongside World Snooker to bring the game to life with incredible detail, featuring all the players and all the drama of the pro tour and a wide array of game modes for online and offline play.
Over and above all of that though, we believe that the most important factor in bringing to life an authentic snooker game lies within the gameplay itself. This is why we’ve engineered an extremely sophisticated physics engine, built from the ground up for snooker, to ensure that we capture every little detail of the sport to create the ultimate true-to-life simulation.
It turns out that the best way to test the physics of a snooker game is to put it in the hands of professional players, so we went ahead and did just that throughout the course of development. Top ranked players Kyren Wilson and Shaun Murphy both spent time with us in the studio for the ultimate test of our physics simulation and AI difficulty. They were both impressed by the level of control and the precision captured within the game and just how close it is to the real thing.
