EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

Rory McIlroy will be the new face of EA Sports’ flagship golfing series. It’s been no secret that the next Tiger Woods game won’t be a “Tiger Woods” game, and it was almost inevitable that the best golfer in the world would be next in line.
As such, EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will be launching on Xbox One and PS4. We’ve known for a while that EA had ended its relationship with Woods, but this is the first we’d heard of his replacement.
“I’m very proud and humbled to see my face and name on EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour,” said McIlroy. “This is a great honour, and something I couldn’t even dream of growing up playing the sport. I really hope people enjoy the game and I’m very glad I can be a part of it.”
McIlroy’s debut as the face of EA’s golfing franchise also marks the series’ maiden entry with the Frostbite engine. As such, there will be no loading time between holes.
Advertised with the tagline, “golf without limits,” this upcoming entry will contain “gorgeous real-world courses and epic fantasy tracks,” EA Sports Rory McIlroy PGA Tour will be released this June. Check out the gameplay footage below – the graphics look sensational!
