Wolverine Studios News: Draft Day Sports: Basketball 2 and PureSim Baseball 2

First, a new version of Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball is going to be released, and here's a list of the new features:
--DDS:PB2 goes global! Take on the challenge of running one of 72 European clubs complete with dual season play (domestic and cup) and interaction with the American professional leagues
--League Expansion! Start a brand new franchise with a league expansion draft and begin the ultimate dynasty challenge
--Depth of player personalities and interactions. Can you find the right mix of talent and chemistry to win the big one?
--Expanded financial options like restricted free agency and player and team option clauses in contracts
-- Simplified financial mode. Don't like all of the details of the real world salary model? Play with a hard cap option to make it easier
--Progressive injury healing. Player effectiveness will improve as injuries begin to wind down and heal
--Vastly expanded in-game media presence. New reports, magazines, news stories and more
--Player and team control options. Manage your teams in even greater detail.

Those are interesting additions, and I really like the hard cap option, because I think that will be very appealing to players who want a streamlined experience.

Plus, if you pre-order using the First Access program, you get both a 15% discount and access to the beta, which is a nice option.

Second, Wolverine is going to publish PureSim Baseball 2 (Shaun Sullivan's outstanding baseball sim) on October 16. I've written about PureSim on numerous occasions--it's an excellent, deep sim, and one of my all-time favorites.
