The Parisian studio Eko Software wishes to sublimate the world of the oval ball in video games and to take a step forward with the new version of the Rugby license.
Scheduled for January 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One and PC, Rugby 22 will be more realistic than the two previous opus thanks to the use of photogrammetry. The faces of star players will be better worked on, knowing the artificial intelligence has been retouched so that the difficulty is better adjusted to the level of play of the players. In order to continue to establish itself as the benchmark license of the oval, the biggest championships with all the official clubs will be available in this new rugby game, just like the biggest nations (France, Italy, Ireland or Japan) .
“Rugby 22 continues and deepens the solid work started by Eko Software on the two previous games“, Says Benoît Clerc, publishing director at Nacon.”We want to offer fans of the oval ball the most complete and authentic experience possible, thanks to a gameplay benefiting from all the improvements made following player feedback on previous titles and the integration of a number of competitions. and completely new official teams in a rugby simulation.“
