For fans of golf both real and virtual, today is going to be a great day. EA SPORTS is releasing Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 today.
This year’s title boasts an impressive amount of features with two of the biggest highlights being the online country clubs and Kinect integration. The online country clubs allow you to compete with or against your friends to jockey for the top of the leaderboards in your own community. The Kinect integration allows you to shape your own swing and provides some of the most accessible golf features you’ll find of any titles.
Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) announced today that Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 13 and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 13:The Masters Collector’s Edition have shipped in North America and will be available worldwide starting on March 30. Both games are packed with an array of new features, including the most comprehensive swing mechanic revamp in more than a decade, allowing players to customize their shots and execute more than 62 million combinations. Additional new features include Kinect for Xbox 360 integration, making the franchise the first ever voice-enabled and controller-free sports simulation, an all-new Tiger Legacy Challenge mode that allows players to relive Tiger’s most memorable golf achievements and an online and social feature that allows fans, for the first time ever, to connect, compete and collect in-game rewards with their friends.
“We focused on making Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 the most immersive golf experience ever. Fans have the opportunity to chase and win one of sport’s most highly coveted accomplishments, the Green Jacket, play with or against friends with our online Country Clubs mode and incorporate their authentic swing in the game with Kinect integration,” said Mike Taramykin, vice president and general manager of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR. “Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 is the total package.”
Tiger Legacy Challenge celebrates Tiger’s greatest golf moments from child prodigy to golfing legend. The mode features 10 different eras where gamers can relive Tiger’s days as a toddler playing golf in his childhood backyard, his domination of junior and amateur events, his remarkable Tiger Slam in 2000-2001, his 14 major championship wins and much more.
With Tiger getting his own victory on the golf course this past weekend, it makes the release of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 even sweeter. The Tiger Legacy Challenge is looking to be a great story-telling aspect for the remarkable career of Tiger Woods.
