Blackout Games, creator of the ultimate sports management simulation platform, announced that Blackout Rugby is available now on Steam and mobile. The most in-depth rugby team management sim ever made, Blackout Rugby is a comprehensive multiplayer game with a strong social component that lets you compete with players worldwide.
“The player experience is at the centre of what we do, so we will continue to improve Blackout Rugby and add exciting features and game modes,” says Jeremy Bell, founder and CEO of Blackout Games. “After developing sports sims for several years, this launch is a huge achievement. We are looking forward to rolling out the football management sim later in 2022 and the cricket title soon after.”
Blackout Rugby is an MMO rugby manager, allowing players to build a club, train a team, and compete on the world stage. Using our revolutionary match engine, players can watch their team play it out in 3D on the field against rival clubs, and determine the outcome of the match through highly customisable tactics and training regimes.
Players will be tested on their management skills and their understanding of rugby, as they are presented with vital choices and challenges in their daily routine, including player injuries, negotiation contracts from sponsors and players, prioritising certain skills in their training regime, acquiring and investing in new players, upgrading club facilities like their stadium or office building, scouting out the competition, and much, much more!
