First Next Gen Golf Details Revealed

EA SPORTS golf fans have always loved authentic courses and players, but they've also asked for more choice and customization in how and where they play.  We're working on a new approach to deliver the best golf experience to our fans — we think you'll love it, and so we’re excited to share the first screenshot of our next generation golf game currently in development. 

EA SPORTS and Tiger Woods have also made a mutual decision to end our partnership, which includes Tiger's named PGA TOUR golf game. We’ve always been big fans of Tiger and we wish him continued success in all his future endeavors.

Moving forward, we will continue to work with the PGA TOUR exclusively to create groundbreaking golfing titles and our partnership remains strong.

EA SPORTS is committed to creating a new golf experience that leverages the best technologies across EA to deliver a stunning and immersive game for mobile and next generation consoles.

We'll have more news soon.

    Looks good, if not amazing. Maybe the pics don't do it justice. And hey, if EA is watching the forums for feedback like they claim for SimCity, then let me say this: KNOCK IT OFF with the course DLC. It's a terrible pricing structure & leaves a sour taste in our mouths. At least before on say, the PS2 era Tiger games, you knew if you bought a new year, you'd get more courses. More value. Now it's 60 bucks, course count on disc stays the same but DLC keeps increasing. Lost me as an annual buyer

    Nice, but any chance of fixing the issues with TW14 first? Gameface and dissapearing clubs would be appreciated, cheers.

    Please offer the whole game for the initial purchase price. The model where I have to buy experience points, swami knowledge, or gold doubloons is frustrating and I feel ripped off. I feel it's a form of bait and switch. Thanks, Ira

    I used to make sure I complete every TW game, but haven't bought it since TW12. Graphics stay boring, course DLCs are rip-off and games were always a bit buggy. I hope things change for the next-gen consoles, as the screenshot looks amazing!

    Also getting VERY tired of the DLC model. Include the courses for a legitimate season at least. The fantasy courses and misc others can be left as extras.

    I just hope they fix the crowd. Even from last gen, they basically have the same animations and are spaced apart equally. I know it's only in the works, but everyone's arms/hands are along their hips. I assume that will change. The crowd really does add a change to overall gameplay.

    Is it gonna be a real golf game or a commercial wrapped in a game cover.. Am I gonna have to buy the other half the game (courses) after I buy it once? Will my guys from TW14 transfer over? Will I have to buy a PS4 to play it?

    Is there any update on when the Next Gen version will be released? I know it has only been about 4 months, but we would normally know by now what the new release date is. Any update would be welcomed.

    Is there any chance of UPDATED STATS tracking like the old PC versions used to do? Reference Microsoft Links 2003 for the best example. I know the current gen systems are capable...just don't know how hard it would be for EA to add something like that into the game. I'd like to know my stats for each course, including having them separated by what skill level I happen to be playing on, since it's not uncommon to shoot -20 or better on the easier levels. Enhanced stats tracking is way overdue

    I hope tiger endorses another golf game with a rival company. EA needs competition or they will take there fans for granted which has happened here.. and has been for years. I have played every game since pga tour 96 until tiger 13, buying the same game, nothing new gets old really quick. just no thought or innovation what so ever! It's not tigers fault because of his personal life, its the lack or ideas and creation. Typical EA ... its nothing more than a badge now.

    Could we have a real simulation ? All opus are arcade mode. And a real practice range will be great.
