Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14 Gameplay Enhancements to Deliver On-The-Course Authenticity
Simulation mode, retro equipment and custom swings just a sample of
the major changes for this year's game
REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) announced that Tiger Woods PGA
TOUR 14 will feature a host of community-driven gameplay
enhancements that will significantly change the in-game experience and
how players approach a round on the links. From swing styles and greater
ball control to era-specific equipment and true ball physics, Tiger
Woods PGA TOUR 14 continues to elevate the authenticity of the
franchise and blur the lines between real life and virtual golf.
Go back in time and experience golf through the various eras,
starting in the late 1800s through present day. As users advance
through the timeline, they will see and feel the true ball physics and
equipment representative of each era. In the early eras, ball spin and
trajectory are slower and lower in comparison to how the ball reacts
to today's equipment. Fans will be able to hit the links with retro
golf clubs, such as Mashies, Brassies, Baffing Spoons, Jiggers and
Niblicks. Pairing the old equipment with the true-to-life ball physics
from those early years gives golf fans an authentic gameplay
representation of what it was like to play a round in those eras.
Presentation elements in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 have
been completely revamped to put players right into the action and
emotion of a PGA TOUR broadcast. The first thing users will see is new
situation-specific data, scoring and a broadcast presentation package
that emulates a tournament-like television experience. Additionally,
statistics will surface throughout each round, letting you track your
performance against the rest of the field in a variety of categories
such as, driving distance, putts per hole and birdies. This year, Tiger
Woods PGA TOUR 14 will feature over 3,300 camera shots, including
overhead, close-up and green-side angles in addition to many others.
Even the look and feel of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 will shift
alongside its real-life majors as players will also see the
leaderboards that are distinct and synonymous with the Masters
Tournament, U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the PGA Championship.
Twenty four unique golfer swing styles are available this year,
enabling players to customize gameplay to the next level. Users can
tailor the career mode golfer by selecting power versus control, fade
versus draw, trajectory and handedness. Players now have the
opportunity to choose whether they want to be a power-draw hitter like
Dustin Johnson or swing like Luke Donald who has pin point accuracy
off the tee. Each pro golfer in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 14 has
their own authentic swing style.
This year's game features a new enhanced Strike Meter which
enables gamers to hit the ball with consistency out of any lie with a
properly executed stroke. The Strike Meter introduces a left to right
movement to simulate scenarios players would face in real life, such
as side hill lies which demand an altered reach, to create an
authentic ball striking experience in any given situation.
A fifth difficulty setting has been added to Tiger Woods PGA TOUR
14 this year. Simulation difficulty was designed for
those players who want to experience what the PGA TOUR pros face each
week. In Simulation difficulty, the swing meter, green grid, zoom to
aim, along with other aids are turned off. This mode is the truest
test of skill for the hardcore fans. With this difficulty setting,
users can implement the new advanced shot shaping feature to work the
ball and attack courses with creativity, just like the pros and
