2K has revealed that PGA Tour 2K21 will be swinging onto Switch and other platforms this summer, with a worldwide release of 21st August being announced.
The announcement comes alongside a new trailer, which you can check out above, as well as the news that PGA Tour pro Justin Thomas is set to be the cover star. The game has been developed by HB Studios, the team behind The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA TOUR, and will include 15 licensed PGA Tour courses. Here’s some PR:
Thomas will be joined by 11 additional PGA TOUR pros, each of whom will present a challenge to players in PGA TOUR Career Mode as they compete to become a FedExCup Champion. Players can also create and personalize their MyPLAYERs with equipment and apparel from licensed brands including adidas, Polo Ralph Lauren, Malbon Golf, Callaway Golf, Bridgestone Golf, TaylorMade Golf and more.
Capping off the simulation experience, PGA TOUR 2K21 will feature a broadcast-style presentation with state-of-the-art graphics, dynamic cutscenes and a seamless replay system, all anchored by the play-by-play commentary of renowned broadcaster Luke Elvy and analyst Rich Beem.
The game’s said to be designed for players “of all skill levels”, with real-time tutorials, tips and shot suggestions being on offer for rookies, while veterans can make use of the game’s Pro Vision, Distance Control, and Putt Preview features. Expect to find several ways to play online, too, with modes like Alt-Shot, Stroke Play, Skins and 4-Player Scramble.
A press release for the announcement notes that PGA Tour 2K21 will be “available in digital format for Nintendo Switch at launch”.
