EA Sports PGA Tour will include brand new swing mechanics and the return of a fan favorite feature. In an announcement regarding the return of the storied St. Andrew’s Links, EA hinted at what players can expect gameplay-wise when its gold sim returns.
“… In addition to playing the Old Course at St Andrews Links, EA Sports PGA Tour players can also look forward to the return of fan favorite gameplay elements such as the three-click swing method which will make its return alongside analog and brand-new swing mechanics which will be detailed further in the coming months.”
The press release went on to mention how The Open Championship can be played at the “Old Course,” St. Andrews, as well as two other historic sites.
“Inspired by The Open’s rich history and historic 150th championship, EA Sports looks to its own long history of making golf video games since 1990 to inspire their next generation golf experience… Along with the ultra-realistic addition of the Old Course at St Andrews Links, EA Sports PGA Tour will also render the Royal and Ancient Clubhouse and the Swilcan Bridge in stunning next-gen visuals through the proprietary Frostbite engine.”
When EA returns to the virtual links, it will be the only title to feature all four majors. The aforementioned Open Championship, The Masters at Augusta National, the PGA Championship, and the U.S. Open. PGA Tour‘s career mode also gives players the chance to compete at the Player’s Championship and FedExCup Playoffs.
EA Sports PGA Tour is set to launch Spring 2022 on next-gen consoles.
