PGA Tour 2K21 Will Have Some Commentary Lines That Only Ever Play Once
The PGA Tour 2K21 commentary team has recorded a few lines that will only ever appear once, but it's unclear what they are.
PGA Tour 2K21 is releasing August 21, and it'll contain some audio lines that players will hear once and then never again. The commentary team of Luke Elvy and Rich Beem recorded some lines while "in full flight" that won't repeat after you hear them the first time.
This news comes via a tweet by John McCarthy, the senior audio designer at developer HB-Studios, which previous developed The Golf Club series. He says that he's been going over the commentary, and found a "classic" that he had forgotten about.
Oh man.... We've got some bits of commentary in @PGATOUR2K that will only play once EVER and you wont hear it again. Just got a classic from @Luke_Elvy and @beemerpga that I had forgotten about. Can't wait for people to hear these two in full flight 😂😂😂— John McCarthy (@Mstr_John) July 17, 2020
What exactly this means isn't clear, but judging from the tweet, they'll likely be strange, funny lines. McCarthy gave one example to Elvy when he asked what he was referring to, discussing an "aside" that will make its way into the final game.
definitely used Rich's aside where he talks about his aunt and uncle's pet store in Arizona in the middle of the course intro 😂👌— John McCarthy (@Mstr_John) July 17, 2020
We also know that these two commentators will also make fun of you if you make a bad shot, which should be interesting.
The EA-produced PGA Tour series also had some strange, self-referential commentary--one of the commentators in Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 would sometimes explicitly reference the fact that you were playing a video game, rather than real golf.
PGA Tour 2K21 has revealed several of its courses, including the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut and TPC Summerlin from Las Vegas, Nevada, along with 13 others. We also have the full player roster and a pre-order guide.
