Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters In Stores Now

Golf fans, we hope you’re not too rusty from the long winter, because Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters arrives in stores today. For the first time in franchise history, players can experience the rich history and tradition of the Masters Tournament and Augusta National Golf Club. An exciting development this year: Not only is the game available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and Wii, but it also supports the new PlayStation Move and Wii Balance Board functionality that allows players to earn “Balance Points” to activate a power shot.

Also new this year are a series of enhanced features, including a completely revamped career mode, all-new caddie system, fresh broadcast presentation, new courses and PGA TOUR golfers. For the first time ever, EA SPORTS laser-scanned every hole at Augusta National Golf Club to provide players with the most authentic digital representation of the Masters Tournament. Every tree, every azalea, and every undulation in every green was recreated down to the smallest detail. 

“We’re excited to bring our fans the immersive and authentic Masters experience that they’ve been anxiously waiting for,” said Nick Wlodyka, Executive Producer for EA SPORTS. “This has long been the number one feature our fans have requested, so we’ve pulled out all the stops for this year’s game to ensure that our players feel as though they’re actually stepping foot onto the historic grounds of Augusta National Golf Club.”

Sixteen beautiful championship courses are featured on the Xbox and PS3, while 25 courses are featured on the Wii edition.  Additionally, 19 courses plus Augusta National Golf Club will be included in the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12 Collector’s Edition, developed exclusively for PlayStation 3 . 

Mini-golf, a family-friendly mode which originally debuted in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11, is available again on all platforms with the inclusion of five courses, including a new Boardwalk style layout.   

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 12: The Masters retails for $59.99 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and $49.99 on the Wii. The exclusive PS3 Collector’s Edition is available for $69.99. Order Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters today.
