After teasing PGA TOUR 2K21 last week, 2K has announced their officially licensed golf simulation video game is scheduled to release on August 21 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia. The game will be developed by HB Studios, the same studio behind The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR.
Justin Thomas, the 2017 FedExCup Champion, PGA Championship winner and former World #1 on the Official World Golf Rankings, has been named the cover athlete.
PGA TOUR 2K21 will include 15 licensed PGA TOUR courses, each of which were scanned using cutting-edge technology to bring the fairways, greens, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. Players can also trick out their own greens and fairways with thousands of custom options in the Course Designer.
Thomas will be joined by 11 additional PGA TOUR pros, each of whom will present a challenge to players in PGA TOUR Career Mode, as they compete to become a FedEx Cup Champion. Players can also create and personalize their MyPLAYERs with equipment and apparel from licensed brands, including adidas, Polo, Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, TaylorMade Golf and more.
Capping off the simulation experience, PGA TOUR 2K21 will feature a broadcast-style presentation with state-of-the-art graphics, dynamic cutscenes and a seamless replay system, all anchored by the play-by-play commentary of renowned broadcaster Luke Elvy and analyst Rich Beem.
PGA TOUR 2K21 is designed for players of all skill levels. Rookies can take advantage of real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions, while veterans can master their games with Pro Vision, Distance Control, Putt Preview and other innovations.
Social gaming is at the core of the experience, as players can hit the links with friends in local and online matches, including Alt-Shot, Stroke Play, Skins and 4-Player Scramble. In addition, Online Societies will encourage players to invite their squad to hit the clubhouse and run full seasons and tournaments with unique entry rules and requirements ,as well as handicap and event settings.
