Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition Announced


You can tell that the Summer will soon be here in the UK because all the really good sport games all start rolling out at the same time, first we had the Golf, then we had the Cricket and Football, so I suppose a Rugby game kind of makes sense. Home Entertainment Suppliers Pty Ltd (HES) have just announced the development of Rugby Challenge 2: The Lions Tour Edition for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, by New Zealand based games developer Sidhe. The sequel product includes myriad new features, improvements and fresh content including the addition of the highly anticipated British and Irish Lions 2013 Tour of Australia.
