By Keith Gray, 5 years ago
As promised earlier this week, 505 Games and HB Studios have announced today that yet another exclusive deal has been struck to help heighten the level of authenticity in upcoming tournament tie-in, Rugby World Cup 2011.

Not to be out-done by their English counterparts at the RFU, the French Rugby Federation (FFR) are the latest national governing body to put pen to paper on an exclusivity agreement. This deal means that the official Team France Rugby will feature and ensures that the physical likeness of many French stars will also be included in the first fully-licensed rugby game of this console generation.

Another two screenshots have been released to showcase the game's exclusive features:

Assuming you paid close attention to the previous article, then you may have also spotted the French player sneaking around in the background of the second screenshot of the English team! Keep your eyes peeled, as further exclusivity agreements are likely to be announced in the near future.

Rugby World Cup 2011 is scheduled for release on August 26th, 2011; shortly before the real-life tournament kicks off between September 9th and October 23rd.
