Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will get one new course in late September

More surprising than the lack of courses and golfers in Rory McIlroy PGA Tour has been EA Sports’ failure to detail any post-release support plans for the game. Sales of McIlroy were dramatically affected, mostly due to having only eight licensed courses, yet it took until two weeks after release for the company to announce anything to do with additional content. The first info has come now and it’s underwhelming to say the least.

One new course is on the way for Rory McIlroy PGA Tour and it’ll be free around the end of September: East Lake Golf Club. Additionally, the course that came with pre-ordering the game (TPC Scottsdale) will go out to anyone who didn’t on August 11.

If EA had immediate plans to add considerable content including courses and/or golfers they would have announced that prior to release of the game. While the company claims they’ll support Rory McIlroy PGA Tour for quite some time, potentially comparable to the nine months they did with EA Sports UFC, the news today won’t be very encouraging to those who bought the game for full price on day one.
