In close collaboration with Augusta National, EA SPORTS has worked meticulously to capture the course and traditions of the Masters. Inspired by Augusta National’s own mission of innovation and improvement, EA SPORTS employed first of its kind aerial scanning to collect millions of data points, previously inaccessible in golf games, to recreate the unparalleled beauty of Augusta National authentically in the game. At launch, the game’s exciting ‘Road to the Masters’ content will deliver players the prestige of competing in the Masters Tournament, plus additional experiences exclusive to Augusta National.
In EA Sports PGA TOUR, golf fans will be able to build their virtual career and experience the sights, sounds, and thrills of the PGA TOUR including THE PLAYERS Championship, FedExCup Playoffs and more unforgettable events. 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. (Yup, that’s a dig at 2K…)
Golf fans can live out a legendary career as they authentically compete at THE PLAYERS Championship, FedExCup Playoffs, and strive to complete a career grand slam, while experiencing the unique atmosphere and venues of each tournament. More information about each major championship will be revealed this summer.
EA Sports PGA TOUR will be built on the EA Frostbite engine, leveraging next-gen technology, promising stunning fidelity, breathtaking immersive environments, and approachable, dynamic gameplay.
