Early videos exploring Rory McIlroy PGA Tour through EA Access

Posted July 10th, 2015 at 12:00 pm


Rory McIlroy PGA Tour went out through EA Access on Xbox One Wednesday providing the first and only opportunity for many to try the game out, or at least watch videos and live streams from those who can. Promotion of the game has been somewhat subdued, maybe in part due to the lack of content in at launch – but that wouldn’t explain so little in the way of gameplay footage or detailed profiling on the features/modes that make up the product. 

With that in mind I held a couple live streams on Wednesday when I was just getting acclimated to Rory McIlroy PGA Tour. The early hours, those spent getting accustomed to a new game, often set the tone for their lifespan. The two streams have been archived in the videos below.

The first features a run through tutorials, the game’s prologue, and a round at Chambers Bay. The second video includes the start of Career Mode, a foray into the dreadful new design for Online Play, and then a few minutes with the Night Club Challenge.

Some brief stretches of video have been muted due to flagged soundtrack music. Look for some written impressions of the game tomorrow, and a video discussing it at length on Monday!
