There aren't many options for fans of table-based sports on PlayStation 4, so it's good to see developer Lab42 taking a shot with a new, officially licensed title, Snooker 19. Developed in partnership with World Snooker Association, it's a simulation of the sport that's aiming for authenticity, with broadcast-style presentation and accurate physics.

In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, game director Justin Forrest goes through the game's features, and it sounds pretty comprehensive. There will be two career modes: "‘Pro Seasons’ where you start a career as any established Pro Player including players within the top 16, and ‘Rising Stars’ where you start off at the bottom of the rankings as a young up and coming snooker star of the future." Online, you can play quick matches or engage in tournaments that run "in line with the real world WSA tournaments". You'll be able to play regular snooker, 6 red, and a shootout mode that sounds like a more arcadey affair.

It seems to be rather robust, and it's looking decent in the debut trailer too. Will you be chalking up your cue to play Snooker 19 on PS4? Score a 147 in the comments below.
