E3 2014: EA Sports PGA Tour to Feature Jets, Warships, Explosions

With Tiger Woods out of the picture, EA gets creative with PGA Tour and introduces new fantasy courses.

Ever thought "hey, golf is OK and all, but I totally wish I could hit a few balls in the middle of a dangerous war zone while jets bomb battleships around me"? Don't worry folks, EA has heard you loud and clear.

Aside from the usual array of grassy golf courses, upcoming EA Sports PGA Tour will feature a variety of fantasy courses, one of which is a war zone featuring battleships, fighters jets, and yes, lots and lots of explosions. The game will be powered by Frostbite, the same engine used in EA's Battlefield series.

It's not known what has sparked this new, rather dramatic direction for the PGA Tour series, but perhaps the recent dropping of Tiger Woods has given EA Sports a sudden burst of creativity. Or, you know, because explosions.

EA Sports PGA Tour launches in spring 2015 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

What an incredibly ridiculous idea. I have no problem with fantasy courses per se, but this is super weird.

Can't wait for the Mass Effect Map DLC, the Dragon Age Map DLC and the NHL Map DLC.

Based on previous games and EA's reputation, I'd guess that there are 15 or so courses you get at initial purchase. Then you need to pay for all the cool courses. Typical EA. They're the worst

I love Mark's writing, only him (and explosions) can make golf somewhat interesting.

looks cool. Best of both worlds. Serious golf and a collection of fantasy courses.
