Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR News Post



The Master's was one of the coolest draws of the last couple of Tiger Woods PGA Tour releases from EA Sports. Now with the news that the course/event are not in this year's game, does that affect your enthusiasm about this year's title at all?

I'd rather have it, than not have it, but I'm still buying regardless.

My thoughts exactly! And if they took the money used for the license to Augusta and used it for several other courses, I'll be just as happy. It would've looked staggering on PS4 though, and hopefully it'll end up being in the series in the future.

Not buying. The Golf Club scratches that each for me.

I like the golf club but I'm still going to check this out at least for a rental

Wouldn't be surprised to see it available later on as DLC, of course at extra $$.

I don't think it's that big of a deal but it's borderline unacceptable. How can you put out a PGA Tour game without the 4 majors? The maojrs are the only tournaments people really watch, and you're leaving out the most iconic one.

The Masters were never in a PGA Game until 2012.

The big difference is in major pro team sports there are only 30ish stadiums to render. There are hundreds of top class amazing golf courses in the world, they are never going to have the time to render all of them in one release. I'd rather them rotate in different ones with each games than the same ones over and over.

It's not the end of the world. We got it in the last 2 games, but licensing with Augusta is expensive and usually not easy. It would be great to see it back in the game at some point, but I don't feel entitled to have it in every game forward.

Basically how I feel too, this may very well have made my decision. I can say this sealed my decision not to buy right away. I wasc oncerned anyway about getting a true simulation Golf game, so I was hesitant anyway, so now I know I Will wait and see.

When is the last time EA had to worry about money, in the 90's? I guarantee you that if The Golf Club wanted to put Augusta in its game, not only would EA put Augusta in, but they would get an exclusive license just so The Golf Club couldn't put it in theirs. Since EA sees no reason to right now or would rather charge you later for it as DLC, they decided not include Augusta.

Exactly...it should be there. No excuse. Not game breaking but I still want it in there.

I've been playing TW golf since my PS2 days. Not having Augusta in the game is not a big deal. There are plenty of good courses to play. I'm excited to see how it's going to look on the PS4.

This is like when EA took the Camp Nou out of FIFA a couple years ago.

I was on the fence about this game about getting the game day 1 or shortly after release. But I think the not having Augusta National has pushed me over to the not getting it or buying it at an extremely discounted rate side of the fence.

I'm an extremely causal video game golfer and TW '14 is still getting the job done to scratch my play what the pros play digital golf itch.

I can almost see EA's headlines now for a future Rory Mcilroy PGA Tour game when they get the license back for Augusta. "For the first time every on Next Gen play Augusta National Golf Club & The Masters Tournament......."

I thought the exact same thing when I heard Augusta was out. I'm sure they'll do a litmus test to see how we all feel about it not being in. Then they'll add it as a dlc or a package and get $20 or so bucks for it.

I'm more disappointed that they don't have it available yet. I thought they would have it out right around the 1st major. The Golf Club is on sale for X1 this weekend for $12 so I picked it up since I'm jonesing for golf it being Masters weekend and all.

So basically, I'm really bummed, but still plan on buying Rory's game day 1.

I'm an EA Access member, which means I'll get to try it before I buy it anyway, so I'll be buying based on that.

I don't think they'd release it as DLC. I think that's something they'd use as a selling feature for a future game.
