Golf fans and gamers rejoice. Video game publisher 2K has announced the release date for its new, highly anticipated golf game, PGA TOUR 2K21.
Working collaboratively with HB Studios – who were responsible for developing the incredibly detailed “The Golf Club” titles – 2K Studios has revealed that PGA TOUR 2k21 will be released worldwide on Friday, August 21, 2020 and will include 15 licensed PGA Tour courses and 12 PGA Tour players, including cover star Justin Thomas.
“Being chosen to be the first-ever cover athlete for the premiere PGA TOUR 2K game is a tremendous honour,” said the former World No.1.
“I’m excited to join the 2K family and challenge players everywhere on the digital links.”
2K believes that PGA TOUR 2K21 – which can be played on the PlayStation 4 system, the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One X and Windows PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch system and Stadia – “heralds the return of the great golf video game that fans have been missing.”
Each of the 15 licensed PGA Tour courses have been scanned using cutting-edge technology to bring the fairways, greens, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. Plus, players can create their own greens and fairways with thousands of custom options in the Course Designer.
Thomas and the 11 other licensed PGA Tour players, meanwhile, will challenge users in PGA TOUR Career Mode as they compete to become FedExCup Champion.
Users can also create and personalise 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 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.
The game has been designed for players of all skill levels – and 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 four-player scramble.
