EA Sports’ PGA Tour Isn’t Your Average Country Club

EA Sports' golf franchise skipped this year, and it's returning in the spring of 2015 now titled PGA Tour. These screens for the title show off both sides – its buttoned down, day-at-the-country-club side and its crazy fantasy golf side.

As the game's name indicates, the title is still affiliated with the real-world of golf, complete with a career, real courses, etc., but it's also adding fantasy courses. PGA Tour is being powered by DICE's Frostbite 3 engine, and accordingly, has a course where a battleship from Battlefield crash lands while you're playing.

Not just for looks, this event changes how you approach the course. "One of my favorite things about the game is discovering new shortcuts and alternate routes to the hole on fantasy courses," says Brent Nielsen, the game's executive producer. "Players are encouraged to wander off the beaten path and find new roads to success. Now that the entire course is open at all times you are as free to be as creative and imaginative as you want in your pursuit of a low score."

Another benefit of the engine is that EA says that a round of golf will not require loading between holes.

PGA Tour comes out next spring for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. For more, check out its debut trailer, as well as the screens in the gallery below.

Fight Club Gets Digitized Into Fake 8-Bit Game

David Fincher's movie adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club novel came out in 1999, which makes it old, but not really old enough to have been made into an SNES video game. That won't stop some fans from dreaming.

This trailer for a fake 16-bit Fight Club game from CineFix looks infinitely better than the Fight Club fighting game that came out on PS2 back in 2004. Incidentally, if someone made a game that looked like the video below, I'd play it.
