The new golf game EA Sports PGA Tour is already casting its shadow clearly ahead, because it will start in just a few weeks. Then there is also an extensive career mode on board – and this has now been presented in more detail in advance.
When EA Sports PGA Tour becomes available on Friday April 7th, EA Sports will also be shipping a career mode straight away. This was discussed in more detail in the run-up to the publication.
In career mode, for example, you will be able to compete with a personally created golfer in the biggest golf tournaments around the world. The whole mode sees itself as part of a dynamic and adaptable progression system. You can develop your character’s skills down to the smallest detail.
It starts with the character creation, which wants to shine with a variety of visual adjustments, equipment options and swing styles. The latter can be customized in career mode by setting swing shape, swing speed and preferred shot types.
As an amateur, you then set the start of your journey: You can master the US Amateur Championship, the August National Women’s Amateur, the Amateur Championship, the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship and the Latin American Amateur Championship and finally in Q-School for one Battle for a spot on the Korn Ferry Tour. After completing all amateur championships, you will receive an invitation to the Masters and the US Open.
After completing the Korn Ferry Tour, which can also be skipped, you finally compete on the PGA Tour and play the biggest events week after week including the Major Championship, Grand Slams or FedExCup.
As the game progresses, Career Mode uses an RPG-like progression system that allows you to improve your golfer’s skillset. As you earn experience points and skill points in categories like Power, Drive, Approach, Short Game, and Putting, you unlock new shot types and upgrades that help you succeed on increasingly difficult courses.
In the Season Hub, you can view your upgrades, view the events calendar, track your career progress, and other milestones on the Career Mastery tab. Completed and ongoing quests – challenges grouped under a course or tournament – can also be viewed to improve skills and unlock new types of shots. By completing various challenges, you can adjust the stats of your ball and racquet to customize performance metrics in the areas of power, precision, control, and recovery.
The following different attributes can be influenced by completing quests in career mode:
Power: Improving this attribute increases power and affects swing speed off the tee. Precision: The higher the precision, the less often there are failures. Control: The more control players have, the more precisely they can influence grip, shot and ball spin. Recovery: This attribute reduces penalties for poor lay of the ball in the rough or sand. Penalties include: Flight Distance The range displayed in the Flight Distance Penalty window Natural Spin Shot Shaping Spin Control Miss Tolerance Window Off-Plane Swing and Misses EA Sports PGA TOUR – Career Mode Trailer
