There’s no shortage of golf games on the Nintendo Switch, but for the most part, they’re all cartoons with timeless physics and gameplay. It’s great to see that there will soon be a realistic golf simulator of the pros on 2K! The PGA Tour 2K21 will be published on the 21st. August 2020 via eShop for the Switch. For more information, see the official press release below!
2K announced today, via a long drive, that PGA TOUR® 2K21, the next officially licensed golf simulation video game, is now available worldwide on Friday, February 21. In August 2020, PlayStation®4, the family of Xbox One devices, Xbox One X and Windows PC will be released via Steam, Nintendo Switch™* and Stadia. With PGA TOUR pro Justin Thomas as cover athlete, the PGA TOUR 2K21 announces the return of missing golf video game enthusiasts. Developed by HB Studios, the studio behind Golf Club 2019 with the PGA TOUR, the PGA TOUR 2K21 marks the evolution of the golf club franchise and will feature 15 licensed PGA TOUR courses, each scanned with the latest technology to bring the fairways, greens, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. Players can also cheat on their own greens and fairways with thousands of custom course designer options. Fans can now book their time by pre-ordering the PGA TOUR 2K21 from participating retailers.
To be selected as the first athlete on the cover of the PGA TOUR 2K game is a great honor, said Justin Thomas, 2017 FedExCup champion, PGA Championship winner and former No. 1 in the official World Golf Ranking. I can’t wait to join the 2K family and challenge gamers all over the world via digital channels.
Thomas will be joined by 11 other PGA TOUR professionals, each of whom will challenge the PGA TOUR players in career mode and fight for the FedExCup title. Players can also create and customize their MyPLAYER with equipment and clothing from licensed brands such as adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, TaylorMade Golf and others.
The simulation of the PGA TOUR 2K21 is complemented by a TV-like presentation with modern graphics, dynamic scenes and a smooth playback system. All this is accompanied by comments from the well-known presenter Luke Alvey and analyst Rich Beam.
As the world leader in sports simulation, 2K is the ideal partner to launch the new PGA TOUR 2K video game series and bring the PGA TOUR experience to new players of all ages, said Len Brown, general advisor and executive vice president of the PGA TOUR licences. We are excited about the future of franchising, starting with the PGA TOUR 2K21.
Golf is more connected than ever, with celebrities, athletes and musicians playing every day and sharing their experiences on social media, according to Chris Snyder, Vice President of Marketing at 2K. Our goal is to create the most authentic golf simulation experience, and HB Studios brings that authenticity to the PGA TOUR 2K21, which is a true 2K game in every way, including realism, depth and fun that appeals to both golf lovers and casual golfers.
The PGA TOUR 2K21 is designed for players of all levels. Beginners can enjoy live tutorials, tips and shot suggestions, while veterans can master their game with Pro Vision, Distance Control, Putt Preview and other innovations. Social gaming is the heart of the game, because players can connect with their friends in local and online competitions, including shootings, attacks, skins and quadruple battles. In addition, online communities will encourage players to invite their team to join the club and create complete seasons and tournaments with their own rules and registration conditions, as well as handicaps and events.
As part of a partnership between 2K and lifestyle sports brand adidas, players pre-ordering the PGA TOUR 2K21 will receive a 2K/adidas CODECHAOS MyPLAYER package, which includes adidas CODECHAOS BOA® golf shoes and custom 2K/adidas clothing, including a polo shirt, Ultimate365 pants and a touring hat designed exclusively for the PGA TOUR 2K21 by adidas Golf. Players purchasing the deluxe digital edition of the PGA TOUR 2K21 will receive a 2K/adidas CODECHAOS MyPLAYER package, as well as a Golden Touch package with a gold stake and driver, and a 2300 VC package that releases in-game cosmetic items**.
