Pro Rugby 2: Authentic to the Final Blade of Grass


Digital Jesters Unveil the 3D Stadiums of the Zurich

13 December 2004

Rugby fans are used to spending their weekends huddled in the cold, watching the
stars of the Zurich Premiership running about and staying nice and warm. Now you
can finally take off your scarves and mittens. Digital Jesters are excited to
present a taste of the authentic 3D stadiums that feature in Pro Rugby Manager
2, allowing those long suffering supporters to enjoy the same views from the
comfort of their centrally heated living rooms.

Each of the 12 clubs from England’s Zurich Premiership: Bath, Gloucester,
Northampton Saints, Leicester Tigers, Leeds Tykes, Saracens, Worcester Warriors,
Sale Sharks, Newcastle Falcons, London Irish, NEC Harlequins and the London
Wasps have had their stadiums recreated in minute detail. Over a period of six
months they have been photographed, surveyed, modeled and rendered to create a
collection of the most detailed stadiums ever to appear on PC CDROM.

In addition, the top division in France, home of Pro Rugby Manager 2’s
developers Cyanide has received similar attention with all 16 teams; the proud
owners of a virtual replica of their home ground.

"We want every fan who plays Pro Rugby Manager 2 to recognize their local
stadium the second it appears on screen," says Neena Patel, PR director Digital
Jesters. "Cyanide has ensured this by recreating the personality and
individuality of every single Zurich Premiership stadium."

Pro Rugby Manager 2 will be available on PC CD-ROM in February 2005.
