Video games publisher 505 Games will be hoping to piggyback the growing rugby fever for the upcoming World Cup in September, with the launch of the Official Rugby World Cup 2011 game.
A demo of the game, featuring England vs South Africa set in Auckland, is already available on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. The full retail version will launch on August 26th.
Players will be able to customise the difficulty setting as they are challenged to pick from the 20 participating teams. They will need to lead their team through the pool phase, before progressing to the final.
Developer HB Studios will also give players the chance to play online in special one-on-one matches on Xbox Live and PSN.
