French video game publisher, Bigben Interactive, is proud to announce a new licensing agreement signed with Rugby World Cup Limited (RWCL) and will be publishing the official videogame: Rugby World Cup 2015.
After the success of Rugby 15, Bigben Interactive will give players the chance to take control of their favourite national team and win the Webb Ellis Cup! The Rugby World Cup 2015 video game will be released in line with the start of the official Tournament and the video game is set to add an extra dimension to the excitement around one of the biggest sporting events of the year.
“Rugby 15 was a first approach for Bigben Interactive on this complex pitch of Rugby simulation”, said Benoît Clerc, Head of Software at Bigben Interactive. “This year, with Rugby World Cup 2015, we want to go deeper in this field, offer a good simulation to Rugby fans who will follow their teams during Rugby World Cup 2015, and improve the experience they had with Rugby 15. We hope that all our efforts will reach Rugby fans expectations and we know they will have fun while playing Rugby World Cup 2015”, says Benoît Clerc.
This Rugby simulation will hit the shelves in September 2015. Rugby World Cup 2015 features official teams of the Tournament and will be available for a range of consoles including the PlayStation®4, PlayStation®3, and PlayStation®Vita.
As Rugby 15 was not compatible with the PlayStation TV, we do not expect this to be if it using the same game engine but we will keep you posted if we learn more.
