EA Sports has just released the first trailer for EA Sports PGA TOUR. The game will be the first EA Sports title to utilize the Frostbite 3 engine and arrive in the Spring of 2015.
“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.”
"The technology driving EA SPORTS PGA TOUR opens up so many new opportunities," said Denise Humphreys, PGA TOUR Senior Director of Partnerships. "Two of our favorite new features are the ability to play from hole to hole with no load time, plus having views of the entire course, allowing the gamer a more real-world experience."
The game will feature both real and fantasy courses, presumably both sim and more arcade elements as well. Expect to hear more about EA Sports PGA Tour in the coming months.
