In honour of Gadget minting an NFT based on a computer golf game review published 23 years ago, our product of the day is the very latest in golfing video games. It is EA Sports PGA Tour, a cutting edge golfing game currently under development.
It will allow golf fans to build their virtual career and experience the sights, sounds, and thrills of the PGA Tour including The Players Championship and FedExCup Playoffs. The game will also feature many of the world’s most famous courses, where fans will have the option to play against and as some of the biggest names in professional golf. The launch date will be announced in the coming months.
Through a new, long-term deal, signed this year with the PGA Tour, EA Sports will expand its history in golf with the next-gen PGA Tour experience. The game will be built on the EA Frostbite engine and leveraging next-gen technology, promises stunning fidelity, immersive environments, and dynamic gameplay.
“EA Sports and the PGA Tour have created some of the most memorable golf video game experiences together, and we couldn’t be more excited to expand our sports portfolio with a new golf title on next-gen hardware,” says Cam Weber, EVP & GM, EA Sports. “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.”
