LOCKED IN – Justin Thomas is the first PGA Tour 2K21 Cover Athlete

Speaking to RealSport, Thomas said: “It means a lot to be on the cover of PGA Tour 2K21.

“I was thinking about it and it’s a great way for my first involvement to be in a video game – to be on the cover is about as good as it gets!

There is going to be a seriously fun part of the game, and we can’t wait to see what kind of designs the community comes up with.

Next Gen?

There is no news on whether PGA Tour 2K21 will be re-released on Next Gen consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X, with the game arriving roughly three months beforehand.

With Smart Delivery on Series X, however, any game purchased on Xbox One will be available for free from your library on Xbox One.

After the NBA 2K21 reveal on Next Gen, there is a small glimmer of hope that PGA Tour 2K21 could receive a separate version for PS5 and Xbox Series X, but still unlikely.

Gameplay

You want some gameplay?

Well here it is thanks to a first runthrough from the team at 2K.

We really like the course map that pops up at the tee, with a first look of the pro rivalry feature being shown off.

Review

We’ve already been able to get our hands on PGA Tour 2K21, with 2K giving us early access to the game.

We look at everything from gameplay, to Career Mode and online play in our review here.
