What Rugby 22 Offers
New major national teams are entering the RUGBY license for the first time, including the Wallabies, the official Australian team, and the New Zealand All Blacks, famous both for their competitive record and for the aura that accompanies them! The latter, in addition to the French team, have been selected by the studio for a first step towards photogrammetry technology, allowing the players’ faces to be represented as faithfully as possible in the game.
A true simulation, Rugby 22 offers players all the elements that make up modern rugby: recognized official teams, tactical changes before and during the match, pod play options, post-contact passing and combinations. All rugby fans will find the fundamentals of the sport in the game.
