After Rugby 18 and Rugby 20, the sport takes its next step forward in Rugby 22. With refined artificial intelligence, a new difficulty mode, cleaner onboarding with new tutorials, more realistic player faces thanks to photogrammetry, and new official teams, EKO Software has gathered all the ingredients needed for a next-generation rugby experience.
Experience True Rugby
Rugby 22 is a simulation, meaning all the aspects of the sport are in there. Rucks, scrums, line-out, drops…every phase and each rule of the sport has been implemented in-game. To add to the immersion, more than 50 official teams are faithfully represented, with both their official home and away jerseys, and all the players on their rosters in the current season.
Top 14, Pro D2, and the United Rugby Championship, fans from all over the world will be able to play with some of the best rugby players on the planet. In addition to this, top national teams are also featured, including the New Zealand All Blacks and the Australian Wallabies for the first time! Combine this with France, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy, Japan, Fiji, and Georgia to get the full picture of the intense international matches you’ll be able to play with your friends.
A Deep Tactical Dimension
Rugby may be a contact sport, but the key to victory is often to take a tactical advantage over your opponent. Create space, use your players to their full potential, and you should find a solution to move the ball down the field!
In Rugby 22, we’ve expanded the tactical options that are available, letting you change your pass chain from traditional tactics to many pod possibilities, adjust the position of your winger, chose the right amount of defensive pressure, and much more. You can also use the set play system to define some specific moves, for example doing a succession of crossing passes to gain some crucial ground in those tense final moments.
This product entitles you to download both the digital Xbox One version and the digital Xbox Series X|S version of this game. Limited offer until April 28, 2022.

Let’s Sing ABBA: When Karaoke Meets Disco
Players have been asking us for years to include more ABBA in Let’s Sing. We listened and made a special edition that will satisfy all your wishes — but we didn’t stop at the songs.
When you think about pop music, there are a lot of artists that come to mind. Some are one-hit-wonders, others have one or two successful albums. And then there are the artists and bands that shaped the genre into what it is today with their songs being seared into collective consciousness. One of those bands is, without a doubt, ABBA.
So, if you think about, it really only made sense for us to honor one of the most successful and influential pop bands of all time with their own special entry into the Let’s Sing series. Everyone knows at least some of their songs, probably even by heart without even realizing it. And we have also been asked for years to include more ABBA into our games. So by popular demand, here it is: Let’s Sing ABBA!
Picking the songs for this edition was easy and hard at the same time, simply because there are just so many hits to choose from! A few were of course absolute no-brainers. From the first moment it was completely unthinkable not to include the likes of “Mamma Mia,” “Dancing Queen,” “Waterloo,” or “Super Trouper” in the playlist. From there on out, it was more of a question of “What don’t we include?”
A testament to that is the fact that we broke our own rules, at least a little bit: Usually, the international version of a Let’s Sing game includes 30 songs. However, Let’s Sing ABBA includes 31 — because we wanted to add a song from their newest album Voyage, which they released in 2021. So our karaoke players get 30 classic hits that take you right back to the era of platform shoes, flared pants and disco balls and one new hit, “I Still Have Faith In You.”
But we knew that we couldn’t stop there. To let people experience Let’s Sing the ABBA way with more than just the songs, we overhauled the interface and also the avatars to look a little bit more like the band members. Play long enough and you will unlock iconic outfits that are sure to give your next performance an additional boost of confidence.
Other than that, Let’s Sing ABBA comes with single and multiplayer modes, leaving no excuses for people not to join in. I you want to get a head start and practice on your own? We’ve got you covered. Want to get into a singing competition for the ages with some friends? Done. You’re looking for a special challenge? Our mixtape mode is definitely for you — no two playlists in this dynamically generated mode are the same.
We got a glimpse of the fact that we had made the right choice with Let’s Sing ABBA during gamescom: Even more people than we could have possibly hoped for stopped by to step into our karaoke box and belt out some disco tunes, also cramming more people in there than we thought possible. Needless to say, all of them were leaving with big smiles on their faces once they were done. Mission accomplished on our end. Thank you for the music so far and we can’t wait to see some great performances on social media!
