EA Changes Up Cover for PGA 12
Tiger Woods goes missing from game's cover; Still appearing on PS3 CE.
Superstar golfer Tiger Woods will not be prominently displayed on this year's newly announced golf title from EA Sports, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters.
The cover of the title will instead focus on the Masters Tournament, as players will be able to step onto the grounds of the Augusta National course for the first time. The publisher told IGN last January Woods would remain on the cover of the franchise for the foreseeable future despite his personal troubles.
EA told IGN today that fans shouldn't read too much into the decision to remove Woods.
"This year's game is all about celebrating the Masters and the inclusion of the historic Augusta National Golf Course in the game," a spokesperson said in a statement. "The box art is a direct reflection of that celebration."
"We want consumers to experience the rich history of the tournament and having one of the most iconic holes in golf (No 12 – Golden Bell) makes the cover art instantly recognizable to a broad spectrum of gamers and golf fans."
Woods will still appear on the PlayStation 3 exclusive collector's edition, however, which retails for $69.99.
Set for release on Mar. 29 in North America and worldwide on Apr. 1 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, The Masters includes several new modes as detailed below:
Masters Moments — Play through memorable, historic moments as players try to measure up against some of the sport's greatest legends.
Tiger at the Masters — Relive each of Tiger's four wins at the Masters by attempting to equal or beat his scores in each round of the Tournament.
The Caddie Experience — Behind every great golfer is a trusted and reliable caddie. Players will have a caddie by their side on every swing, providing strategic advice, from shot selection to reading greens, helping them become a more successful golfer.
The Closest Thing to Being There — For the first time ever, EA Sports utilized a new state-of-the art laser scanning technology at Augusta National Golf Club to laser scan every hole featured in the game. This will provide players with the most authentic digital representation of the Tournament and Par 3 courses. Every tree, every azalea and every undulation in every green was recreated down to the smallest detail.
Broadcast Presentation — Feel the emotion of every swing as called by the all-new commentary team of Jim Nantz and David Feherty, who headline a completely revamped TV broadcast presentation package.
Career Mode — The all-new career mode will closely mirror the journey of an amateur golfer's rise through the ranks and chase the title of Masters champion.
New Players — Over 20 professional golfers to choose from, including Zach Johnson (2007 Masters Champion) and Bubba Watson (2010 Ryder Cup — Team USA).
Championship Courses — Take on the best of the best on sixteen of the world's most celebrated courses, including Augusta National Golf Club, Royal Melbourne Golf Club (Australia), Atlanta Athletic Club, TPC San Antonio, St Andrews Links and Pebble Beach Golf Links.
