Eko Software, Bigben Interactive, and Maximum Games announced Rugby 18 for PC and consoles today.
This authentic rugby union game, which Eko Software has been working on for over two years, features the top Northern Hemisphere rugby clubs and players, with highlights being England’s Premiership Rugby clubs and France’s TOP 14 teams. Rugby 18 is striving to become one of the most immersive rugby games on the market by giving players a variety of tactical choices during matches, adding varied game phases, and by giving players the ability to learn and refine technical skills in the game.
Overall, there will be more than 2,000 professional rugby players from the 2017-2018 season in Rugby 18 alongside a management mode where one can build and develop their own team. Benjamin Lalisse, Managing Director at Eko Software, had the following to say about working on the game:
“As a huge sports fan, being able to work on Rugby 18 is terrific. The team is working hard to reproduce everything that makes rugby unique as faithfully as possible. I hope fans will enjoy fully experiencing the intensity of the big matches and sharing their passion for rugby.”
