More On: Rugby20

On the heels of an Epic World Cup last summer that saw my All Blacks soundly beaten by a better England side who themselves lost in the final by a resolute Springboks team from South Africa, Rugby20 is nearing release. The final version of the game is promising 69 official teams, 4 leagues, and over 2,000 players. Details on the third and final beta period are also out (the first two have already passed). That beta is open to those with pre-orders between 19 December and 3 January. While the beta only includes national teams, get excited for the complete roster in the full release. However, keen eyed observers will check out the graphic below and see a few key National Unions are missing from the lineup. Sigh, licensing...

Head over to the official site for all the details about Rugby20, including pre-order information or further details about the 3rd Beta. Rugby 20 will be available worldwide on January 23rd, 2020 for Xbox One and PC. The PS4 release is a week later, January 28th in North America. Full press release is after the Read More link below.
