For those who prefer a version of a game that gets patched automatically, this will be welcome news.
There hasn't been an official announcement, but Rugby League Live 3, which launched on consoles earlier this month, has popped up for sale on Steam.
It's caught people by surprise — there are only 6 reviews on Steam so far. That probably won't deter anyone who has been following developers Big Ant though, after the surprisingly capable release of Don Bradman Cricket 14.
A patch is being pushed out shortly to correct a frame rate issue when character details are set to very high, but otherwise the PC version should have all the bells and whistles of the console release — except for patches, which the PC will get first (because there's no authentication process to get in the way).
Given that the Dally M's were on the other day, the timing isn't half bad. It's available for US$50 but if you're waiting for a discount, don't bother: Big Ant haven't been big fans of Steam sales.
