Following the announcement that Rugby 15 would be delayed in the UK, Apex Interactive, distributor of Big Ben Interactive titles in South Africa, has confirmed that the game is sitll on track for its November release in SA.
Posting to Facebook, the official Apex Interactive page assured gamers that they’ll still be getting their hands on Rugby 15 in mid-late November.
MenStuff was able to get some hands-on time with the upcoming rugby game at the rAge gaming expo in October, and we recently got the chance to chat about our opinions of the game with popular rugby gaming Youtuber, TheScottishCannon.
In the interview, we discussed the gameplay innovations of the new title, as well as some of the interesting nuances noticed.
A notable feature was that the real-life player likenesses and names did feature in the game, although the international kits seen were not licensed. It must be noted that the version played was not the final retail version of the game.
Check out our full hands-on preview of Rugby 15.
Rugby 15 is currently in development for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, PS Vita and PC, and will be released on 14 November 2014.
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.
