EA Sports has sent us an interview with Rugby 06 Producer, Tristan Jackson, as he talks about the upcoming Rugby 06.
EA Sports: "How is the feature of Impact Players utilized in the game?"
Tristan Jackson: "The impact players feature takes some of today’s best players from around the world and gives them their own unique abilities and AI behaviours that emphasize what it is they do best. In the case of Jonny Wilkinson, he will be able to give the ball a huge boot downfield, or be the ‘go to guy’ if kicking for points. On the other hand, if you get caught in the cross-hairs of a Richie McCaw tackle, you could end up coughing up the ball or paying a visit to the hospital. These players will effect the way you play with, and against, certain teams. The style of play of the impact players can really raise the quality level and help dictate the style of your team."
