Rugby Challenge is a rugby union based title that seeks to capture the attention of a growing number of rugby fans around the world.
Rugby Challenge will include the All Blacks, ITM Cup, and Investec Super Rugby amongst other licensed teams and competitions, and will feature multiplayer online play, a multi-year franchise mode, extensive customisation options, and dynamic real-time commentary.
New Zealand Rugby Union Commercial Manager Paul Dalton said they were delighted to be able to put their support behind Rugby Challenge. “We are very excited to be able to now offer fans an authentic gaming experience that includes our key competitions,” he said.
Rugby legend Jonah Lomu will appear in the Rugby Challenge, marking the first time Lomu has appeared in a videogame in over a decade.
“HES is pulling out all the stops to make Rugby Challenge an exciting and memorable experience,” said David Robles, Business Development Manager for HES. “Jonah is one of rugby’s greats, and will bring an extra something special to the game.”
In addition to including his name, likeness, and motion in the game, Lomu will also bring his experience and expertise into the development process by working directly with Sidhe, the Wellington based studio behind the game.
“I’m a big fan of videogames and being involved in making Rugby Challenge is a great experience,” said Jonah Lomu.
