“We have been very excited to build on the huge success of the original Rugby Challenge” said Sebastian Giompaolo, Managing Director for HES. “Brand new features, expanded and refined gameplay, more options, and additional licenses such as the British and Irish Lions bring this game franchise to a whole new level. This is the definitive rugby union videogame experience”.

The game will be released as Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge 2 in France, All Blacks Rugby Challenge 2 in New Zealand, and Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition in rest of world.

The features and content of Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition include:

• Play in Single Match Mode, multi-team Competition Mode, a vastly expanded multi-year Career Mode, Tutorial Mode, or compete in online multiplayer with support up to 4v4 via PlayStation®Network, Xbox LIVE®, or Steam

• Refined and expanded gameplay with the addition of quick taps, quick lineouts, mauls from lineouts, interceptions, contesting ball at the breakdown, removing players from the ruck, number 8 scrum pickups, and dynamic in game team strategies on both attack and defence

• 110+ teams and 50+ stadia from around the world featured including official team, competition, and special match licenses for the All Blacks, the Qantas Wallabies, the USA Eagles, Bledisloe Cup, British and Irish Lions 2013 Tour of Australia, Barbarians FC, Combined Country, Super Rugby teams, Aviva Premiership Rugby, TOP 14 Orange, Pro D2, RaboDirect PRO12, ITM Cup, and Ranfurly Shield

• More options to create or customise players, teams, and competitions, and change game rules and behaviour to shape the game to play how you want and keep the game fresh year after year

• Revamped sound and commentary systems, with real-time commentary from seasoned rugby commentators Grant Nisbett and former All Black turned commentator Justin Marshall, and French language commentary from Eric Bayle and Thomas Lombard

“It has been a wonderful opportunity to build on the foundation we established with the original game to create a deeper, more engaging, and higher quality experience” said Tyrone McAuley, Technical Director for Sidhe and project vision holder. “Tighter controls, smoother animation, and smarter AI improve the title moment to moment, while additions such as significant new Northern Hemisphere content create a more global and well rounded game”.

Reading what's going to be in the game they got the license for all the major leagues and it doesn't say only NZ and Aus franchises. Hopefully the saffers will be in it.

The rosters in the game are correct of the 11/12 season. So I would think that the new game will have the right squads. But with the massive editing tool in the game, that doesn't bother me.

I still enjoy rugby challenge. Scarlets have been completely re done, along with the transfers for next season.

I'm looking forward to this though.

It doesn't say 6N are licensed so they probably didn't target licensing for this game. Just went for the lions and the new addition of the French Div2.
The rest of the cash will have gone to improve The game play and career mode and graphics probably.

They had a lot of things right on the first one. I'm looking forward to this release.

FIFA did have a few non-progressive years I grant you. But the last two seasons, they have come on massively. FIFA 13 is the most comprehensive and best sports game out there.

FIFA 13 COULD have been. The massive glitch where the career crashes after july 2014 or 15 is a big flaw and one that should have been fixed before the game release. Game play and graphics and depth of the game brilliant. But that simple glitch where a career lasts only 2 seasons if your lucky has damaged its reputation. No sorry, no explanation, no fix as of yet by EA, making it even worse.

I've not played the game for months because of it. disgraceful.

ahh! I was unaware of this - not got that far. I tend to stick with online and ultimate team.  But that seems very shoddy. EA are dreadful when it comes to stuff like that, and their servers get worse every year I'm sure. 

In terms of gameplay, as in the actual matches, has improved massively - thought FIFA 12 was a giant step forward.
