The biggest video game in golf is back this week as the new Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 has returned. Backed by a popular video ad campaign that features Woods, Arnold Palmer and Lee Trevino defending their turf against a group of street thugs, the arrival of this video game is sure to be another spark to fan the white hot anticipation of The Masters.
In an effort to tie today’s current stars with the greats of the game and golf’s great tournaments, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 features nine of golf’s legends, Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods, at historic Open Championship venues such as St Andrews, Royal Troon and Royal Birkdale. Gamers have been able to experience the fairways of Augusta since Tiger Woods 12, but now they can feel the pressure of all four major championships.The new Legends of the Majors mode enables players to go back in time to play the legends at historic events at the Masters, the US Open, the PGA Championship and The Open Championship.
EA Sports worked closely with the R&A, which organizes The Open Championship, to help bring the magic of The Open Championship to the game. “The Open Championship is a truly unique event in world sport with a history which dates back more than 150 years. Bringing the spirit of The Open to a wider audience through the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 game is very exciting. This is a wonderful platform and I am sure golf enthusiasts all over the world will relish the opportunity to play against their heroes in The Open,” said Michael Tate, Executive Director – Business Affairs at The R&A.
In Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14, gamers can now play the golf courses at any time of day or evening, including night golf. The Legends of the Majors mode helps turn back the clock with sepia-hued video, plus fours and vintage golf clubs.
