In a press release issued this past Monday, EA Sports announced that 4 Time Champion and #1 world ranked golfer Rory McIlroy will be the new cover athlete for their annual EA Sports PGA TOUR video game series.
“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 honor, 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.”
EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA Tour is also the first EA Sports title to be built using their Frostbite engine, allowing for the creation of beautiful and completely detailed courses. Frostbite also allows courses to be completely rendered at once, eliminating loading times between courses, and is being touted as truly “Golf Without Limits.”
“Frostbite has allowed us to take this franchise to a whole new level,” stated Brent Nielsen, Executive Producer of EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR. “[Frostbite] drastically improves all facets of the game, from core gameplay to opportunities for brand-new modes and features. We’re looking forward to sharing a lot of great news with our fans throughout the rest of the spring.”
EA SPORTS Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR kicks off the EA SPORTS season of games this June for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
