Rugby League Live 3 is now available from New Zealand retailers for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, having come out a day ahead of schedule.
Developed once again by Big Ant Studios and published by Tru Blu Entertainment, Rugby League Live 3 features over 100 teams from NRL, Super League, Toyota Cup, and more, as well as tools for custom players and teams. It's also the first game to include the NRL Auckland Nines, the short-form, nine-a-side competition held annually in Auckland.
Big Ant's managing director Sebastian Giompaolo describes the game as "the ultimate video game experience of the Greatest Game of All, Rugby League." Instant replays, online play, and tackling have all been improved, and the game introduces a new experience system for player profiles. A dynamic day/night and weather system includes realistic sun movement, dusk to night progress, and mid-game rain.
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Rugby League Live 3 are now available from retailers, while PS3, Xbox 360, and PC releases are due later this month.
