If anyone was wondering what was to become of the PGA Tour franchise after its original namesake was dropped from the title, then one needs to look no further than this. Today, EA Sports announced the first details for the upcoming Rory McIlroy PGA Tour, coming to Xbox One and PS4 on July 14, 2015.
Gamers can now choose from a number of different ways to play, including arcade controls where the left stick is used to control power and accuracy (with full after-shot spin control goodness). Those yearning for the heyday of gold PC games will find the option to play with 3-Click swings, where no analog stick swinging is needed. For those who consider themselves golf game experts, Tour settings should provide an additional layer of challenge. With Tour controls on, the length of your backswing and speed of your follow through determine the power, while your thumb’s club path through the ball will account for accuracy. Can’t decide between all three? You can mix and match the styles as well. Different courses will also affect your shots, as the hardness of the grass will determine how the balls reacts.
