Rugby 20 Tactical Gameplay Video

Bigben and Eko Software have released a new Rugby 20 gameplay video. The third phase of the game’s closed beta starts on December 19. The final version is scheduled for release on January 23, 2020 on Xbox One and PC worldwide and on January 28, 2020 for PlayStation 4, in North America.

The video highlights three fundamental aspects of the game, which fans of the sport will love.

One of the major new features in Rugby 20 is the ability for you to change tactics before and during matches. By managing the game plan, and positioning and behaviour of players, you can experience the unique character of modern rugby and implement your own style of play.

For attacking play, there are different moves available, such as long passes to teammates and kicking options. Grubber kicks, pass feints and side-steps are just some of the options available to help you gain the upper hand over your opponent.

When defending, timing and accuracy are the key to success: tackles must be triggered at the right moment to boost your chances of success while avoiding dangerous play that could lead to a penalty.

With a strong focus on simulation, Rugby 20 offers players all the elements that make up modern rugby: tactical changes during matches, attacking pods, passing after contact and set plays. Rugby fans will find all the sport’s essential elements in the video game.

With real tactical depth, the addition of a set plays system, revised motion-capture animations, redesigned AI and innovative gameplay, Rugby 20 is ready to become the new standard for rugby video games.

Pre-order now for access to the beta for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 16.

  1. And so the game was never made available in the North American PS store, no explanation, no apology, the only people on the planet that were not able to play this game. I know the North American rugby market is small but come on Big Ben-nice marketing technique.
    I've watched enough online videos of all the beta versions to be impressed enough that I preordered yesterday. Very happy with what i'm seeing in beta 3. Game play in the beta feels very responsive and can feel a bit too fast at times.
    I really feel like this game has a lot of potential. I have Rugby League Live 4 and I like Rugby 20 quite a bit more. Really looking forward to the full release.
    Hey guys, I'm reviewing this for OS. I have to admit my knowledge of rugby is very limited, but the tutorials are helping. I can't give any info on the game because it is under embargo until the 23rd.
    If there is anything specific you want me to check or look at please let me know. It might help me with the review. I cannot give out player ratings just fwi.
    Awesome. Career mode for teams, gameplay on pitch against AI. Sliders? Licensed teams? Leagues?

    My review will be out tomorrow sometime. As far as AI, I touched on it a bit, but didn't get too deep. But to going further into it, I think it's pretty good. They seem to not be brain dead at least. Even on the lowest difficulty they put up a fight.
