MenStuff was able to get some hands-on time with the upcoming rugby game at the rAge gaming expo in October. Check out our full hands-on preview of Rugby 15.

The game will be the first next generation Rugby title from the Canadian-based studio, which previously created Rugby World Cup 2011 and Rugby 08.

“It’s literally a 100 percent new game,” said the game’s director Peter Garcin. “We reimagined and rebuilt the game with a multi-year plan in mind. We rebuilt the AI, even the way we approach AI, as well as a new control system, a completely different presentation even, and it plays very differently from any previous rugby game,”

In terms of game modes, the game will feature the fully licensed French Top 14, Pro D2, Aviva Premiership and Pro 12 competitions, but there will also be a “custom cup creator” which has a multitude of configuration options, as well as “other unlicensed competitions which represent other types of competitions that are common in rugby”.

Check out some screenshots below, as well as the recently uploaded Rugby 15 gameplay from Paris Games Week.
