EA Sports celebrates the Rugby World Cup 2007 with Rugby 08, the only official and exclusive licensed videogame that captures the emotion and passion of the world's fiercest national rugby rivalries.

Experience all of the excitement of Rugby World Cup 2007 in France as you challenge the best teams and players ever assembled for global supremacy. A rugby-playing nation's destiny is in your hands when you take control of one of the officially licensed national teams and power your way through a gruelling six-week Rugby World Cup campaign for the Sports' ultimate prize - the glorious Webb Ellis Cup.

Play as your home nation and control your favourite players as you battle from qualification right through to a virtual re-creation of the rugby championship final.

This is the season you take complete control of managing your favourite rugby squad, emulating its style on offense and for the first time ever, on defense, using new authentic defensive formations. Adjust your defense on the fly to keep momentum on your side or counter your opponents attacking style by changing your defensive strategy based on score, field position, and more.

Now you take full command over every scrum and maul with enhanced push and rotation controls, make lineout throw-ins look easy with a simplified control scheme for the novice player and advanced mechanics for the pro, and master the new kicking meter to score those key penalties and converts. New truck and zoom camera angles zero in on all the action on the field by zooming in on breakdowns and set pieces during the game's biggest moments. The world is yours for the taking in EA Sports Rugby 08.
