Eko Software presented their upcoming sports title, Rugby 18, at the E3 2017. The Paris-based software house isn’t new to sports gaming, having created some niche titles like Handball 16 and 17 which had mixed reviews in spite of some good aspects.

Much of this is going to change for Rugby 18: the small team seems to have learned from the past and they show now a great determination to release a great game.

As described during the interview, the devs worked hard on the details to get the game to a new level. The scrums are now much more detailed and well-simulated, and from the gameplay video is evident that mastering this aspect will be a key to your in-game success.

The devs also paid a good deal of attention to the game’s database, to have players to look and play as their real counterpart. The game will come with teams from Premiership Rugby in England, from France’s TOP 14 and other leagues from all over the world.

The game has been developed for the last two years and a half, and a small team of 20 people contributed to the title that will be released in October for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Make sure to watch the video to get more details on the game, the engines used, and the modes.


Stay tuned on Sports Gaming Online for more information on Rugby 18 as the release date approaches!
