PUEBLO, Colo. – 8 to Glory, the official game of PBR (Professional Bull Riders), will be released by publisher Three Gates on PlayStation®4 and Xbox One next week. The game will officially go on sale July 31.
Since 8 to Glory was launched as a mobile app for iOS and Android in August 2016, more than 1 million people have downloaded and played the game. Based on this success, publisher Three Gates is now providing console players with an even more exciting and realistic bull-riding gaming experience.
The game’s console version, available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, offers a variety of modes that allow players to follow the real PBR season and relive legendary matchups. Fans can go through a season on the PBR Tour with the PBR’s best riders and rankest bulls, including 2017 World Champion Jess Lockwood as well as former Champions Cooper Davis, J.B. Mauney, and Silvano Alves. The rank roster of bulls includes SweetPro’s Bruiser, Magic Train, and Spotted Demon. Fans can also play in “versus” mode head-to-head against other gamers.
Full-season mode replicates actual 25th PBR: Unleash the Beast events and arenas. There is an opportunity to level up a rider’s strength and skill with new gear as the season moves on with the ultimate goal of winning the PBR World Championship.
“This action-driven game allows fans to immerse themselves in all the thrills and drama of PBR with one hand strapped to the controller and spurs digging into the recliner,” said Sean Gleason, CEO, PBR. “We are proud to offer the most realistic graphics and play ever seen in a bull-riding video game.”
“We tested 8 to Glory with real PBR athletes to ensure it’s the highest-quality gaming experience that best reflects the PBR brand,” said Don Geyer, CEO, Three Gates. “With PBR competing in five countries and available in 130 territories through global television distribution, we see global appeal for a console game depicting the epic man-versus-beast matchups in a sport with the bravest athletes in the world.”
