RUGBY 18: AUTHENTICITY AT THE HEART OF THE GAME
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.
