Apparently EA Sports' Tiger Woods golf videogame series has never featured Augusta, Georgia's Augusta National Golf Club before, but this year's edition will include a playable Masters course "laser-scanned" to resemble the real thing. Last year's game sold itself by promoting its Ryder Cup mode, and it looks like Augusta will be the big selling point for this year's version. A trailer:â†µ
The course also includes a couple of new modes in which players can try to recreate classic Masters moments by Woods and other golfers. EA Sports president Peter Moore said during the Tuesday announcement of the course's inclusion, "For more than a decade, the Masters Tournament has been the most requested and coveted feature for the Tiger Woods PGA Tour franchise among our fans."â†µ
Now all we need is A.J. Green on the cover of NCAA 12 and Matt Ryan to politely decline the Madden 12 cover, as he is a very cautious man, and the Peach State can start a run on sports videogame covers.
