After a small hiatus, Electronic Arts announced a return to the virtual link with EA SPORTS PGA Tour. For the first time in a EA SPORTS title, PGA TOUR will utilize the powerful Frostbite 3 engine to bring us gorgeously detailed real-world courses, as well as epic fantasy courses that offer new settings and unique challenges.
“Frostbite 3 is really the perfect piece of technology for us to use as we create EA SPORTS PGA TOUR,” said Executive Producer Brent Nielsen. “There is no better engine out there for creating complex, lifelike environments, and it has allowed us to recreate some of the world’s most beautiful courses, as well as create some new ideas of our own. Also, for the first time ever we’re offering a game that’s completely free of load times after you start your round, allowing you to move seamlessly from one green to the next tee without breaking immersion.”
This newfound freedom will come in handy not just for PGA TOUR courses fans know and love, but also in the new fantasy courses that will make their debut in EA SPORTS PGA TOUR. Why take two shots to get a ball around a beached battleship in the Battlefield Paracel Storm course when you can fire a ball right at the bow, bounce it off the deck and land on the green in one?
Developed by EA Tiburon, EA SPORTS PGA TOUR will be available in Spring 2015 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
