Rugby 22’s official national teams have been announced by NACON and Eko Software, with some new additions over previous titles. Those new teams include New Zealand’s All Blacks, and the Australian team. These two teams will be joining the likes of Ireland, France, Fiji, Italy, Japan, Scotland, Georgia, and Wales. A new trailer has been released to show the addition of the All Blacks but it does not show any gameplay.


The key features of Rugby 22 include:

  • Enjoy official licenses – Rugby 22 incorporates the vast majority of major national teams, with official players and jerseys, including teams from New Zealand, Australia, France, Fiji, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales, Japan and Georgia.
  • Take the field, alone or with others – Play single or multiplayer, local and online, in a variety of game modes that pay homage to one of the world’s most demanding sports!
  • Explore Career Mode – Build your team, recruit players and reach the top division!
  • Play like the pros – Enjoy an increasingly realistic rugby simulation with real tactical depth. Show your skills on the field to win the game!
  • A true rugby experience – Rugby 22 offers a real rugby experience with realistic animations, as close as possible to the real players’ movements thanks to motion capture technology, all in the rugby art for an intense experience.
  • Train – Thanks to the new tutorials in the game, learn the basics of the sport and train to become the best player!

Rugby 22 was revealed earlier this year but so no real gameplay has been shown. The last rugby game we reviewed was Rugby 20, and in that review Stefan wrote: “Rugby 20 is like a Northern Hemisphere team’s World Cup campaign. It’s full of big ideas and good intentions, but a shock defeat here and an expected loss to the South’s big boys there, and it soon comes off the rails. There’s some fun to be had, but it’s often at the expense of the game, not because of it.”

Rugby 22 will be released on January 27th for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
