's release in just over a week, publisher Bigben Interactive has revealed the pre-order bonus for the upcoming sports game. Those who pre-order are set to receive the 2017 British & Irish Lions team.
For those unaware, the British & Irish Lions team is an amalgamation of players from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Every four years, they'll go on a tour at either Australia, New Zealand or South Africa — all three themselves amongst the best rugby union countries in the world. The past two tours (2017 and 2013 before that) were against New Zealand and Australia so in 2021 they'll be facing South Africa, although yesterday we found out that would be without coach Warren Gatland who as recently as yesterday announced that he will not be in charge for that tour.
