2K today announced that PGA TOUR 2K23, the latest chapter in HB Studios' golf simulation video game franchise, is available now worldwide for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC via Steam.
Featuring PGA TOUR icon and sports legend Tiger Woods as a cover athlete, PGA TOUR 2K23 celebrates Tiger Woods' legacy by not only appearing as a playable pro in the game, but also serving the development team in an advisory capacity as Executive Director.
Golf for beginners and professionals
"To bring PGA TOUR 2K23 to the next evolution in the franchise, there was simply no better partner than our legendary cover athlete, Tiger Woods," said Alfie Brody, vice president of global marketing strategy at 2K. "Throughout his career, Tiger has shaped golf culture in terms of image, fashion, prestige and style - all areas that we continue to shape with PGA TOUR 2K23 and the entire series."
"We are deeply grateful for the support and passion of the PGA TOUR 2K community," said Josh Muise, creative director at HB Studios. “Their love of the game, their feedback, and the hard work that went into the course designer have helped make PGA TOUR 2K23 even better. We are very proud to be able to share the game with you today and in the future.”
PGA TOUR 2K23 includes several new additions and improvements that will delight all veterans of the series, PGA TOUR fans and recreational golfers alike:
Play as a pro - Woods is just one of 14 playable* male and female professionals at launch, including Justin Thomas, Xander Schauffele, Lexi Thompson, Tony Finau, Lydia Ko, Collin Morikawa, Will Zalatoris, Brooke Henderson, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, and Rickie Fowler more. Players can play as the pro of their choice in Exhibition, Multiplayer and Divot Derby modes, or compete against them in MyCAREER mode. Not only the professionals are returning, but also the presentation in the style of a TV broadcast including the commentary team, supplemented by the English professional golfer and commentator Henni Koyack.
PGA TOUR Pro Status - In MyCAREER, amateurs and professionals alike can look forward to a place at the top of the leaderboard. You can create your own MyPLAYER, start Q-School, secure a spot on the Korn Ferry Tour, and then work your way up to PGA TOUR Pro status by competing against the Pros on some of the most challenging and popular courses ؎ always with the glorious FedExCup in mind. Alternatively, there is also the option to jump directly to PGA TOUR Pro status.
The big hit! – From the game's release, NBA legends and avid golf fans Michael Jordan and Steph Curry transfer their skills from the court to the fairway. Jordan is available as part of the Michael Jordan Bonus Pack, Curry as free bonus content for all players on all platforms.
topgolf-modus - The new Topgolf mode offers a unique single or multiplayer experience based on the popular golf entertainment phenomenon, where players must hit targets and achieve high scores.
Individual play style - Customization options for MyPLAYER are more extensive than ever with new archetypes and skill trees. Players choose the style that suits them best, from long, powerful tee shots to professional short play. Custom golf club fitting allows for even deeper personalization through unique combinations of club characteristics. New, optional consumable golf balls increase certain attributes but degrade others for balance reasons. Likewise, players can choose to use an unlimited number of golf balls with no special attributes. In addition to the familiar analog stick swing, there's a three-click swing option so you can play how it feels best.
Individual look - The 'MyPLAYER' personalization is also making a return. Just like Tiger, fans can outfit their MyPLAYER with apparel and gear from Nike Golf, TaylorMade and Bridgestone Golf, as well as other licensed brands such as adidas, Callaway Golf, FootJoy, Malbon Golf, Nike Golf, PUMA, Titleist, TravisMathew and more* **. To fill golf bags, there are clubs and balls from brands like Bridgestone Golf, Callaway Golf, COBRA, Mizuno, Odyssey Golf, PING, Scotty Cameron, TaylorMade, Titleist and Wilson.
Lifelike courses or creativity with the course designer - Fans will have 20 licensed courses to choose from at launch. New additions include the Wilmington Country Club South Course, The Renaissance Club, St. George's Golf and Country Club and more. Post game release, Pebble Beach Golf Club, Spyglass Hill, Torrey Pines North and South courses, and more courses will be added as free bonus content across all platforms. The industry's leading course designer also returns, offering players the opportunity to create the courses of their dreams and share them with a global online community****.
Extra portion of golf lifestyle – To the content after publication of PGA TOUR 2K23 culturally relevant partners such as the largest and most influential digital sports, entertainment and lifestyle multimedia brand Barstool Sports, trickshot video megastars Dude Perfect and premium lifestyle brand and gaming organization 100 Thieves will contribute.
Season after season – The new season-based live service model ensures that players are provided with new equipment and new challenges for months to come. Season 1 includes Black Quail and Hugo Boss gear.
Clubhouse Rewards – The Clubhouse Pass is also part of PGA TOUR 2K23, featuring new gear and apparel awards from Malbon and TaylorMade. The Clubhouse Pass is available in three tiers: Clubhouse Pass (free) that unlocks free rewards at set intervals, Clubhouse Pass Premium (€9,99 per season) that unlocks rewards for each level, and as a Clubhouse Pass Premium Plus (€19,99 per season), with which you can skip the first 20 levels and receive the corresponding bonuses.
Training for the TOUR - The training mode offers various opportunities to develop your skills, including swing calibration, lessons, chip practice, a driving range and a putting green. The extensive tutorials help newcomers get into the game and give experienced players tips and opportunities to refine their game.
multiplayer fun –Of course there is in PGA TOUR 2K23 also an online multiplayer component. In the Online Societies, players can compete with friends in their own tournaments and complete seasons, including individual rules and participation requirements.
“At the PGA TOUR, we are very excited about the release of PGA TOUR 2K23 with Tiger Woods, Steph Curry, Michael Jordan and many more PGA TOUR greats,” said Len Brown, PGA TOUR Chief Legal Officer and Executive Vice President, Licensing. "It's nice that in-game fans can experience the PGA TOUR season from our players' perspective and compete for the FedExCup."
