Rugby Challenge 3

I may not know much about rugby, but I do know that lots of locals think it’s quite a Naas sport. Ha! Wait, before you hurt me, let me tell you everything you need to know about Rugby Challenge 3. For starters, it should be a lot better than the abomination that is Rugby World Cup 15. Gavin reviewed that title last year, and gave it an all time low score of 2/10.

No Rugby fan deserves that hogwash of game, which is why of course, many have had their sights set on Rugby Challenge 3 instead. It was meant to launch toward the end of last year, amidst the World Cup hype, but sadly, it was delayed.

Thankfully, the long wait since then is now almost over. Rugby Challenge 3 is finally launching this week, on April 22nd! Here’s its official trailer…

I wasn’t interested in Rugby Challenge 3 myself, but on the other hand Darryn, it actually looks pretty good! Visuals are one thing though. What will the game actually include? Let’s take a look…

  • Updated graphics for the next-gen consoles.
  • English language commentary from Grant Nisbett and Justin Marshall and French language commentary from Eric Bayle and Thomas Lombard.
  • Full SANZAR license, marking the first time in Rugby Challenge that the full official Super Rugby will be playable instead of the generic Super 15.
  • Rugby sevens
  • Be a Pro Mode – join a club as a rookie player and work your way up over 13 seasons
  • FanHub – Create, edit and share players
  • Full official licenses with New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and England national teams.
  • Fully Licensed Super Rugby, as well as feeder competitions, including South Africa’s Currie Cup, Australia’s National Rugby Championship, and New Zealand’s ITM Cup.
  • Aviva Premiership will be licensed due to licensing with the Rugby Football Union

That looks like a pretty damn comprehensive list of goodies, complete with official licenses and everything. That all should make any Rugby fan incredibly happy.

Are you one of them, and keen to get the game? Here’s where you can pick up your Springbok Edition…

        Link was purposefully omitted for two reasons:
        1.) I’m not into blatant self-promotion
        2.) Life is tough, man up and go look yourself

    For some reason I’d like to see Matty on a rugby field more than him playing horror games… The ideas are just coming out of nowhere today

    Wouldn’t mind giving it a go but that price is a bit steep for something that I would probably only play for a month at best. Maybe I will win it in the Superbru giveaway

    Said this before and I’ll say it again: It is not a good sign when “everything new” does not include a single point about actual gameplay, and only new tournaments and graphics… :/

    Should be called Rugby Challenge 2.1. Still the same game with a few extra game modes.
