Bigben and Eko Software have a new rugby game that will be released in the coming months. But before then, gamers will have a chance to try out the game, as a beta for Rugby 20 has been announced.

Rugby 20

Bigben and Eko Software have unveiled their latest game, Rugby 20, which has been in development for over two years. The developers at Eko Software wanted to give players an authentic rugby experience, and allows gamers to see all that modern rugby has to offer, including tactical changes, attacking pods, and set players. “With the (2019 Rugby World Cup) just around the corner, Rugby fans will find all the sport’s essential elements in the video game,” Bigben and Eko Software wrote in a joint press release.

Bigben and Eko later added, “Thanks to a reworked AI, the game is even more realistic and allows for true-to-life physical and tactical clashes. The motion-captured animations and improved player models provide a better game experience, and the gameplay benefits from various new features, including multiple set-play options during different passages of play.”

Rugby 20 Beta

Bigben and Eko Software are giving gamers a chance to try out Rugby 20 through three beta phases. The first phase started today, and will go up until October 17. The second phase will go from October 17 and will end in early November. The dates for when the third phase will start and end will be announced at a later date.

Here is what will be available to gamers during the Rugby 20 beta:

  • 20 national teams from countries
  • An International Tournament mode
  • A Quick Match mode, versus the AI or local PvP
  • An Online mode for playing against a friend or an opponent via matchmaking

The beta is open to all gamers who pre-order Rugby 20 on Playstation Store and on the Xbox Store. Rugby 20 will release on January 23, 2020 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Be sure to keep checking out the SGO site for all the latest gaming news.
