EA has actually pulled the drape back on it’s brand-new golf title, EA Sports PGA Tour. The video game is billed as a next-gen golf experience and is the outcome of a brand-new, long-lasting offer in between the publisher and the PGA Tour.
There isn’t a lots of information about the title since yet. The news release does discuss functions such as constructing a virtual profession which gamers will contend on numerous of the “world’s most popular courses”. Events consist of The Players Championship and the FedExCup Playoffs.
EA’s Tibruron studio in Orlando, FL is establishing EA Sports PGA Tour. The video game is being used the Frostbite engine which will, in EA’s words, use “sensational fidelity, awesome immersive environments, and friendly, vibrant gameplay.”
“EA Sports and the PGA Tour have actually produced a few of the most unforgettable golf computer game experiences together, and we couldn’t be more ecstatic to broaden our sports portfolio with a brand-new golf title on next-gen hardware,” stated Cam Weber, EVP & GM, EA Sports in journalism release. “Our group of enthusiastic golf fans is diligently recreating the world’s leading courses such as Pebble Beach, and we can’t wait to offer fans the chance to contend on a few of the most renowned PGA Tour courses and win the FedExCup.”
EA guarantees to share more news, such as a release date, in the coming months.
The video game acts as a resurgence to the sport for EA. The series started in 1990 prior to being branded as Tiger Woods’ PGA Tour start in 1998. Tiger enhanced every cover till 2013, when EA ended their collaboration with Woods in favor of another leading golf player, Rory McIlroy. A single PGA Tour video game launched under his name introduced in 2015 to a lukewarm reception. Interestingly enough, this brand-new video game is the very first time the series has actually done not have the branding of a professional athlete considering that PGA Tour 98.
Since Rory McIlroy’s PGA Tour introduced, 2K Games’ The Golf Club franchise ultimately changed into a brand-new PGA Tour Series. The newest video game is PGA Tour 2K21, which introduced last fall. One would believe that 2K’s collaboration with the PGA Tour has actually pertained to an end with this statement, however that isn’t clear in either case. It’s specifically intriguing considered that 2K really just recently announced a deal with Tiger Woods including the PGA Tour 2K series. All in all, the news that EA desires another stab at golf is not unlike the one revealing the publisher’s go back to college football previously this year (even the marketing art equals).
