Nacon has announced Rugby 22, a new game in the leading rugby franchise.
“The Paris-based development studio has used all its expertise in sports games (Handball 21, Rugby 18, and Rugby 20) and is making many improvements to this latest simulation,” the company says.
“This includes more realistic AI, improved difficulty that adapts better to each player’s level, and more lifelike star-player faces – especially on the latest-generation consoles – thanks to the use of photogrammetry.”
Among the official teams and competitions included in Rugby 22, players can find the top leagues with all the official clubs, as well as major national teams like France, Italy, Ireland, and Japan. Rugby fans can also play as the sport’s current star players and choose their favorite teams to compete against their friends in multiplayer.
Rugby 22 is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X in January 2022.
