Tiger Woods 12 Features The Masters

Posted January 4th, 2011 at 11:30 am

After a year that saw sales decline massively it appears that EA Sports is putting a big effort into turning things around as today they officially announced Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters. For the first time in franchise history Augusta National and the Masters Tournament will be included. The game will also include a new commentary team, new career mode, “Masters Moments”, six other new courses for a total of 16, and more.

Also of note is the complete removal of Tiger Woods from the cover of the game. Last year he split the cover in what seemed to be an effort to deflect some of the focus on him and now the cover art has been designed to promote The Masters inclusion instead of Tiger’s presence. Continue on for a look at the features list for Tiger Woods 12 which a set release date of March 29th and check out the screenshot gallery for the first 30 images and box art.
