Rugby League Live 2 is the latest game out but that was release around 2012. There is Rugby League Live 3 due out either June or July so best to wait for that.

I'm hanging for Rugby League 3, simply because I want to play league and only have a PS4.

Graphics look putrid regardless of the console, but again, it's the only game so need to be thankful for that.

Was schedule for a Q2 release but that obviously doesn't look likely now.

Would be very interested in this. Had a quick look and it actually comes out on Steam on 19th June, however its going to cost close to $60, which is a bit hard to justify given that I recently bought Football Manager 15 for about $15.

It was a good decision to get Far Cry 4, I'm only about 40%of the way through the game but it feels like I've been playing for ages.
Batman Arkham Knight is out next week, I'm keen. I loved Arkham City but missed Arkham Origins.

I downloaded it, fired it up as the Raiders and discovered Glenn Buttriss was rated as one of our star players.

I just quietly turned it off and will never play it again.

There's an editor. There's a lot I need to change before I'll be willing to play this game.

I'll be swapping Hodgson and Buttriss' stats for one, and Croker only has goalkicking of 28 (out of a possible 100), Wighton's positions are wrong and his stats are ordinary too!!

If it's anything like the last game, the mechanics are pretty good for a rugby league manager game. It's just the Raiders' roster requires a LOT of work.

Hopefully there's an update soon.

The Broncos, Roosters, Bulldogs, Storm and St George will be spot on. CAN and Cron would have been phoned in at the end.

If you play as the broncs you can give spouses jobs in the leagues club on $300,000 a year.

It's probably worth a buy if you don't mind manager style games and you don't mind taking half an hour to iron out the bugs in the raiders team.

It took me literally about ten minutes to fix the team to a standard I thought was acceptable, and I could've done so much more.

Yeah, I've played it quite a lot, still have a little bit left to do after completing the main storyline, have mostly moved onto other things though.

Rugby League Live 3 will be released next month on Xbox and PlayStation

FOOTY fans can emulate their favourite rugby league player, burst over the line to score a try or drag players over the sideline in a new video game.
Gamers have been waiting patiently for the release of a rugby league video game, ever since upgrading to next gen consoles.
Thankfully, developers listened and Rugby League Live 3 is set to hit the shelves in less than a month.

Gaming developer, Big Ant Studios, is once again in the driving seat and managing director Sebastian Giompaolo is promising big things.
“We have been listening to the fans and believe that Rugby League Live 3 will deliver them the ultimate video game experience of the greatest game of all,” he said in a statement.
“Big Ant Studios has developed an outstanding game and I am really excited about what it has been able to achieve on this next generation of consoles.”

NRL Head of Commercial Paul Kind said the NRL was proud to be associated with the most anticipated rugby league video game to date.
“Rugby League Live 3 introduces many elements of rugby league never before seen in an NRL video game. It is indeed a must-have for any footy fan,” he said.

The creators have been vigilant in including all the 2014/2015 rule changes and updates to current rosters and uniforms.
Keeping with the current landscape of the competition, career mode will also give players the opportunity to work their way up through the ranks from the under-20s competition all the way to the NRL.
To capitalise on the next gen capabilities, the developers have included a super slow-mo replay system and dynamic weather system which can change conditions mid game.

Most importantly there is new dynamic tackling system designed with “struggle and drag” elements. This will allow attackers to score a try and defenders will also be able to drag players over the sideline.
The game will be released September 10 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3.
