BIGBEN and Eko Software have announced that the first phase for the Rugby 20 closed beta game is now in session.
The first phase of the closed beta starts now and ends on October 17th, 2019. A second beta will then commence on 17th October and will end in early November.
The beta will be available for PS4 and Xbox One owners that pre-ordered the game digitally.

After two years in development, the teams at Eko Software are thrilled to unveil Rugby 20. With a tight focus on simulation, this edition is the fruit of considerable foundational work between the Paris-based studio and various professionals. The goal was for players to experience all the aspects that make up modern rugby: tactical changes during matches, attacking pods, passing after contact and set plays. With the international competition just around the corner, Rugby fans will find all the sport’s essential elements in the video game.
Thanks to a reworked AI, the game is even more realistic and allows for true-to-life physical and tactical clashes. The motion-captured animations and improved player models provide a better game experience, and the gameplay benefits from various new features, including multiple set-play options during different passages of play.
Content available in this beta:
- 20 national teams from countries
