Features revealed for PGA Tour 2K21

Posted May 14th, 2020 at 8:00 am

Last week brought the news that The Golf Club franchise was being rebranded as PGA Tour 2K and now the details on what to expect from the upcoming game in terms of features and release date have rolled out.

PGA Tour 2K21 will come out on August 21 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. For the first time the series will include real golfers with 12 licensed including cover athlete Justin Thomas. These golfers however are not actually playable but act as competitors given the series’ focus on MyPlayers instead. Also new this year is broadcast style presentation with commentary from Luke Elvy and analyst Rich Beem.

PGA TOUR 2K21 is designed for players of all skill levels. Rookies can take advantage of real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions, while veterans can master their games with Pro Vision, Distance Control, Putt Preview and other innovations. Social gaming is at the core of the experience, as players can hit the links with friends in local and online matches, including Alt-Shot, Stroke Play, Skins and 4-Player Scramble. In addition, Online Societies will encourage players to invite their squad to hit the clubhouse and run full seasons and tournaments with unique entry rules and requirements, as well as handicap and event settings.

Of course the main concern with any title that comes from 2K Sports is the influence of in-game currency through microtransactions. Thankfully based on the wording in the press release it appears as though purchases will remain solely cosmetic.
