EA have announced that their ‘next generation’ of golfing video games will soon arrive with EA Sports PGA Tour. Here’s everything you need to know about the game.

As part of a new long-term deal signed with the PGA Tour, EA Sports are returning to golf with a brand new game for next-gen consoles. It’s built on the EA Frostbite engine and will utilize the latest technology for an “immersive” experience.

The new game will allow golf fans to build their virtual career and experience the sights, sounds, and thrills of the PGA Tour including a number of iconic events like The Players Championship, the FedExCup Playoffs, and plenty more.

EA Sports PGA Tour release date

As the game is still in development, there’s currently no release schedule in sight for EA Sports PGA Tour.

EA said in a press release that a release date announcement will arrive “in the coming months”, so there hopefully shouldn’t be too long to wait. We’ll keep this page updated as soon as anything gets revealed.

The Masters will be in EA Sports PGA Tour

In a major deal with EA Sports, it was announced on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, that Augusta National Golf Club and The Masters will feature exclusively in EA Sports PGA Tour.

It’s the first time that The Masters will appear in a golf game since Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 back in 2011, and it will take pride of place on the cover of the game.

“EA Sports employed first of its kind aerial scanning to collect millions of data points, previously inaccessible in golf games, to recreate the unparalleled beauty of Augusta National authentically in the game,” EA said in a statement.

A new landing page on the game’s official website has also confirmed that all four Major events will be in the game: the Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship, U.S. Open Championship, and The Open Championship

Ea Sports PGA Tour features

In the new EA Sports game, avid golfers will be able to build their own virtual careers and work their way through the world of the PGA Tour. So far, The Players Championship and the FedExCup Playoffs have been announced, with more news expected to arrive soon.

“Our team of passionate golf fans is meticulously recreating the world’s top courses such as Pebble Beach, and we can’t wait to give fans the opportunity to compete on some of the most iconic PGA TOUR courses and win the FedExCup,” said EA Sports boss Cam Weber.

 

As you’d probably expect from a high-profile golf game, EA Sports PGA Tour will feature many of the sport’s best courses, including Pebble Beach, as well as the option to play as – or against – some of the world’s most famous professional golfers.

One pro who won’t be appearing in the game, though, is Tiger Woods. He appeared as the face of EA Sports’ famous golfing series for over a decade until 2013, but recently signed an exclusive deal with 2K Games for their own PGA Tour franchise.

EA have promised that more news will be announced in the coming weeks, with a launch date expected soon, so check back soon as we’ll keep this page updated with all the latest information you need.
