It doesn’t matter what he does, how well he plays, what cuts he misses or what goes on elsewhere, Tiger Woods is still the undisputed king of golf. It seems only fitting then that 2K celebrate with him being front and centre of PGA Tour 2K23 – especially now that the game has been fully detailed and has received a confirmed release date.
Tiger Woods is the biggest name in golf, and honestly, we’re not sure when the love will end; perhaps never. Today 2K have confirmed that with the upcoming release of their next golf title – one that they hope will be able to drive towards the greens of the best golf games available – we’ll be seeing Tiger and his legacy fully celebrated.
PGA Tour 2K23 will release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam in October, with the official street date for the Standard Edition sitting at October 14th 2022. However, as is pretty much the norm for these titles, you’ll be able to get early access by a full three days by grabbing either PGA Tour 2K23 Deluxe Edition, or the one we’d go for, PGA Tour 2K23 Tiger Woods Edition – both of those will arrive on October 11th.
However you play, PGA Tour 2K23 will celebrate all things Tiger Woods, both as a playable in-game pro, as an Executive Director helping advise the development team at HB Studios and as a cover star, sitting front and centre on the box art.
“It’s not only great to be back on the cover of a video game, but the Executive Director role makes this a truly unique opportunity,” said Tiger Woods. “2K is the perfect partner for me and I am excited to continue impacting the game and culture of golf beyond my play on the PGA TOUR.”
No matter what version you play, you’ll find PGA Tour 2K23 covering all the usual golf-smashing ideas. A host of pros will be available at launch, with Woods leading a roster of more than fourteen male and female golfers, including Justin Thomas, Lexi Thompson, Tony Finau, Lydia Ko, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, Brooke Henderson and more.
From there you can take part in Exhibition matches, in multiplayer, in the PGA Tour MyCAREER, enjoy the fun of MyPLAYER or take in some more casual modes like Topgolf which offers a unique experience emulating the popular golf entertainment phenomenon, where players can aim for targets and try to earn the highest score. Training mode offers multiple ways to develop skills, including swing calibration, lessons, chipping practice, a driving range and a putting green.
PGA Tour 2K23 will have twenty courses available from Day one, including the South Course of Wilmington Country Club, The Renaissance Club, St. George’s Golf and Country Club and more. The industry-leading Course Designer also returns, offering players the opportunity to build their dream courses and share them with a global online community.
MyPLAYER meanwhile will host items from some of the top brands – Nike Golf, TaylorMade and Bridgestone Golf apparel and gear along with Callaway Golf, FootJoy, Malbon Golf, Nike Golf, PUMA, Titleist, TravisMathew and more. Clubs and balls will come from brands including Bridgestone Golf, Callaway Golf, COBRA, Mizuno, Odyssey Golf, Scotty Cameron, TaylorMade, Titleist and Wilson.
