Following Thursday’s confirmation of Rugby League Live 3’s launch down under, UK publisher Alternative Software has today revealed the release date and pre-order information for the game’s northern hemisphere counterpart.
According to an official email shot, the Big Ant Studios-developed sports sim will make its way onto the store shelves of selected UK retailers on September 17, a week after its Australian release. This will surely come as welcome news to fans of Super League, who had to wait nearly two months for Rugby League Live 2 to reach the UK following its southern hemisphere launch back in 2012.
Ahead of its release, a number of Facebook fans have been selected by Big Ant to playtest the game this week in New South Wales, Australia.
Rugby League Live 3, which features both the European Super League and Australasian NRL and promises substantial improvements over its predecessors, will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PS3, Xbox 360 and Steam.
