EA Sports got in touch with us to let us know that we’ll soon be able to play a new chapter in the EA SPORTS PGA GOLF Series… EA SPORTS RORY McILROY PGA TOUR will be released this June!
EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR Official Gameplay Trailer
“I’m very proud and humbled to see my face and name on EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR,” said McIlroy. “This is a great honor, and something I couldn’t even dream of growing up playing the sport. I really hope people enjoy the game and I’m very glad I can be a part of it.”
EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR is the first EA SPORTS title to be built using the Frostbite™ engine. This new toolset allows the development team to create beautiful new environments, featuring the most detailed courses in franchise history. Frostbite also renders the entire course at once, eliminating load times between holes and allowing users to play their shot from almost any location. It’s truly Golf Without Limits.
“Frostbite has allowed us to take this franchise to a whole new level,” stated Brent Nielsen, Executive Producer of EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR. “The new engine drastically improves all facets of the game, from core gameplay to opportunities for brand-new modes and features. We’re looking forward to sharing a lot of great news with our fans throughout the rest of the spring.”
As a huge fan of all of the Tiger Woods Games since the early 2000 releases, I have pretty much played all of them, and I even platinumed one on PS3. I am definitely looking forward to a new version with no loading, running on that gorgeous Frostbyte Engine.
I do find it interesting that there is no number designating the year for this release. I will be curious if we see a new golfer every year featured or they start numbering future editions.
