It will be possible to play an individual match with up to 4 local controllers, play in any of the licensed competitions or a custom created competition.[2] The game does not feature a player and team customisation mode or a career mode.

Features[edit]
The weather will play a large part in gameplay with the wind affecting the projection of the ball and rain causing the pitch to deform and players to get muddy.[2]
Teams and stadia[edit]
The game features licences for all clubs in the Top 14, Pro D2, Aviva Premiership and Pro12. There is one in-game stadium that is used for every team.
