    Recently, the promotion of Rory McIlroy PGA Tour started to put off vibe similar to how NHL 15 had been handled by EA Sports. Even after having extra time for development the level of content was notably being shielded, and the most prominent of which has been related to the licensing of courses and golfers. Now Operation Sports has learned the extent of both and it's clear why EA had been hiding it. There are only 8 licensed courses included in the game. Additionally there's one that is ...

    With just a month now until release, and E3 a matter of days away, EA Sports has revealed the online feature suite for Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. Unfortunately it appears that the popular Country Clubs mode may be out, but some interesting things have been done with standard ranked and unranked online games and Tournaments. All players, and not just their shot arcs, for the first time will be visible on the course. Based on screenshots like the one above this looks somewhat awkward and poten...

    Golf is one of the few sports now to feature actual competition with the arrival of the "sim" game The Golf Club last August and its recent push due to a retail release and accompanying feature update. It's appeal is fairly limited however, targeting the golfing purists, while the upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is clearly trying to draw in casuals as well. A poll was posted last week to gauge how the presence of The Golf Club could be affecting the approach for some towards Rory McIlroy P...

    Rory McIlroy PGA Tour acts as the return of EA Sports' golf franchise after taking over a year off but it will enter the market with a well-regarded golf game already available. The Golf Club will be its competition, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will be much of a competition. The Golf Club has some advantages over McIlroy but also targets a smaller audience. It attempts to be a true simulation which means it's ultra-realistic and difficult. McIlroy on the other hand is offering d...
