This year’s new Tiger Woods game is set to be the most innovative and true-to-life instalment of the series to date, and for the first time the experience has been fully optimised for use with the Xbox 360’s Kinect device and the Playstation 3’s Move peripheral; although standard pad-based control is (of course) still an option. Earlier today a special Masters Collector’s Edition of the game was announced for both formats, and here’s what’s in it…
· Masters Collector’s Edition Exclusives – Extend your Masters Tournament experience! Take home the exclusive Masters Collector’s Edition and play Augusta National’s famous Par 3 Course, walk the hallowed grounds like never before and explore the world-class Tournament Practice Range. In addition, the Collector’s Edition will feature five additional courses than the standard edition.
· Total Swing Control – Taking its most significant leap forward in swing mechanics in over a decade, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 revolutionizes the virtual golf swing. Golfers will take full control over their swing with all-new tempo, swing plane and shot power controls along with an adjustable shot setup, allowing players to address the ball in a number of ways creating tens of millions possible shots with just one club.
· Experience Tiger’s Legacy – Relive first-hand Tiger Woods’ most memorable golf accomplishments as he rises from a child prodigy to golfing legend.
· Additional Championship Courses – The Collector’s Edition comes packed with five more championship courses than the standard edition, allowing you to experience 21 of the world’s greatest golfing destinations.
· Online Country Clubs – Entry into your own exclusive country club is now at your fingertips. Invite friends to your club, team up to gain quicker access to exclusive golf courses or compete against other club members for the coveted Club Championship.
· 22 Licensed Professional Golfers – Take to the links with any one of 22 PGA TOUR golfers in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13, including Tiger Woods, 2011 US Open Champion Rory McIlroy, 2010 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Rickie Fowler and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 US cover art finalist Bubba Watson.
And no matter which version you choose, you’ll receive an exclusive piece of free DLC entitled ‘The Emerald Green Fantasy Course’…
Fans who pre-order Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 will receive a free download of the Emerald Dragon Fantasy Golf Course. Grab your clubs and prepare for an epic challenge at The Emerald Dragon. This fantasy course is set in the shadow of Japan’s iconic Mount Fuji. The cherry blossom lined Emerald River guides your path through undulating greens, stair stepped fairways, and deceptively decorative bunkers. Challenge your strategic game with split fairways, abundant water, and rolling elevation as you wind your way through the course and come face to face with the Emerald Dragon itself!
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is currently due for release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on Friday, March 23rd 2012.
