PGA TOUR 2K21 is described as an "officially licensed golf simulation video game", so if you know your Four Woods from your Five Irons then this will no doubt come as bit of great news. Also, something for fans of well-maintained grass. Set to tee up August 21, 2020 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch - be sure to hit the jump to see the full trailer.
Where you get modern beats mixed with old fashioned clothing.
Developed by HB Studios, the studio behind The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR 2K21 marks the evolution of The Golf Club franchise and will include 15 licensed PGA TOUR courses, each of which was 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.
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.
That said, no amount of hip hop can make a tucked in polo shirt look cool. Being a 2K Sports jam the cover athlete is a big deal and PGA TOUR kicks things off with golf pro pro Justin Thomas.
“Being chosen to be the first-ever cover athlete for the premiere PGA TOUR 2K game is a tremendous honor,” said Justin Thomas, 2017 FedExCup Champion, PGA Championship winner and former World #1 on the Official World Golf Ranking. “I’m excited to join the 2K family and challenge players everywhere on the digital links.”
Joining him will be 11 additional PGA TOUR golfers which players will be able to compete against in the PGA TOUR Career Mode - competing to become the FedExCup Champion. And in case you're wondering yes you'll be able to deck your digital golfster with clothing and gear from brands like Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, and TaylorMade Golf.
“As a global leader in the sports simulation genre, 2K is the perfect partner to kick off the new PGA TOUR 2K video game series and introduce the PGA TOUR experience to new players of all ages,” said Len Brown, PGA TOUR Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President, Licensing. Phew, that's one hell of a title - and definitely someone you'd expect to find on the golf course. “We’re thrilled to see what the future of the franchise has in store, starting with PGA TOUR 2K21.”
“Golf is hotter than ever with celebrities, athletes and musicians playing the game and sharing their experiences on social media every day," said Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing for 2K - in a mostly fine attempt to make golf sound cooler than it is. "Our goal is to create the most authentic golf simulation experience ever, and HB Studios brings that authenticity in PGA TOUR 2K21, which is a true 2K game in every sense, incorporating realism, depth and fun that appeals to golf aficionados and casual fans alike.” Okay, that's more like it.
