We may have been tasked with battling rivals and whittling down a series of opponents while playing games in fighting and racing genres, but what about a golf game?
In Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14, players are being invited to do just that and EA is challenging you to take down nine of the greatest golfing legends of all time in an effort to stake your own claim to that legendary status.
In this year’s edition of Tiger Woods PGA Tour, you’ll have the chance to travel back in time in the new game mode, Legends of the Majors, and match your skills with golfing greats such as Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Ben Hogan, Bobby Jones, Seve Ballesteros, Sam Snead and Lee Trevino, as well as the titular Tiger Woods himself.
“Players can work their way through these legends in various eras and take each of them down to earn their own seat at the table of golf legends,” EA boasts, somewhat viciously.
Vice President of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR, Mike Taramykin, added:
“This year’s edition of the game delivers a collection of innovative golf features that provide players an unprecedented chance to rewrite the record books.
“Players can earn legendary status by conquering the greatest legends of all time or challenge their friends on some of the world’s most renowned courses. Without question, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 is the best edition the franchise has produced in years.”
A quick feature video takes us on a tour of the legendary targets we’ll have in our sights in the game:
