Rugby 18 Developers Diary Goes Live

Bigben and Eko Software have released a Developers’ Diary to show how the RUGBY 18 team has translated all the details and specific aspects of ‘real’ rugby into a video game. RUGBY 18 will be released October 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

To stay true to the sport and its particular characteristics, the developers had to overcome a number of challenges to ensure the game phases linked seamlessly and to provide a realistic experience. Player movements were recreated using motion capture technology on real rugby players. Each player’s statistics are also individually represented using real match data.
