EA Sports PGA Tour will finally be released on March 24 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.
As reported by Eurogamer, the date was announced alongside a new trailer (below) that showcases some features coming to PGA Tour including its Pure Strike shot system, which promises “fluid swing mechanics, innovative ball behaviour, and lifelike course dynamics”.
Around four minutes of gameplay was shown in total, giving fans the first proper look at the game outside of a brief teaser trailer that was released in October last year.
EA Sports PGA Tour promises a recreation of the world’s top golf courses, allowing players to build their own virtual careers and compete against famous golfers. This line-up won’t include Tiger Woods, however, who instead signed a multi-year deal with rival franchise PGA Tour 2K.
Woods was the headliner of EA’s golf franchise for years before the it switched to Rory McIlroy for its 2015 title, meaning the new game will end an eight year hiatus when it launches next year.
In our 5/10 review of the 2015 release, IGN said: “Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is a disappointing golf game that just barely manages to make the cut.”
