Previously, we told you that Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge would be out on PC on October 21st. Although the boxed version of the game is still delayed, the game has hit Steam today alongside the console versions, just in time for the semifinals of the Rugby World Cup this weekend.
It's nice to see a publisher give digital distribution the go ahead to distribute the game when it's ready, instead of waiting on retail. Currently European gamers often get digital games slightly later than the US, just to cater to the whims of our brick and mortar retailers. It may be wishful thinking, but I'd love it if Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge could herald the end of that frustrating practice.
Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge
Rugby's first global superstar is more than a bit under the weather, sadly suffering from kidney failure at the moment. The game that bears his name has also taken a knock: the PC version of Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge will now be released on October 21st.
The game is one of the very few PC gaming options left to people who want to pretend to run very fast into another man while carrying a weird shaped ball, and initial previews have been promising in comparison to lacklustre showings from other developers. It's already been out in the southern hemisphere for a while, but the slip likely won't make UK PC rugby-ites too angry anyway, as they're all too tired from getting up at 4am to watch the ongoing World Cup.
