EA Sports PGA Tour questions and answers

Why is this game only available on current generation (PS5, Xbox X|S and PC) gaming systems?

“EA SPORTS PGA TOUR’s high-quality graphics and gameplay are only possible on PlayStation 5 and Xbox X|S consoles and some PCs, so the game was developed with that in mind.”

What is the FPS of EA SPORTS PGA TOUR?

“On PC, EA SPORTS PGA TOUR can run at 30 fps, 60 fps or an unlocked frame rate. Consoles (Xbox X|S and PS 5) run at 30 fps.

We understand that some players prefer a higher frame rate visually in their video games, and we’ve heard feedback from the community about the game’s fps on console. As a result, we are exploring the possibility of adding it to the game in the future.”

What is the current live service timeline?

“The major fields for 2023, including Oak Hill, Los Angeles Country Club, Royal Liverpool and Olympia Fields as part of the FedExCup Series and Marco Simone for the Ryder Cup, will be announced prior to each Championship.

We’ll also release updates alongside golf’s biggest moments like The Majors, FedExCup and Ryder Cup, with compelling new content related to current and historic golf moments for players to enjoy.

The game will be released alongside Road to the Masters and will feature a variety of Masters themed challenges. We will share more details about the live service timeline after the release.

Is weather available in the game?

“There are several factors that affect course play, including elevation and wind. Courses in traditionally cloudy areas, such as The Old Course at St. Andrews, appear overcast, while sunny courses, such as The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, appear clear. Other Weather Conditions do not affect gameplay and do not appear in-game.”

Does the game have a three-click swing option?

“We know the three-click swing is important to the community, and as a result of early community feedback, we plan to include this swing in an early title update after launch.”

What affects your shot?

“Players and caddies need to talk before the shot to achieve the best possible success on the course, so you experience this in the pre-shot decisions you need to make to make a great shot. The challenge of a shot is broken down into pre-shot decisions such as club and shot types, and swing execution and placement based on course dynamics, this way you think more about just ‘golf’ and less about the ‘golf swing’.

Many factors, such as the type of club and shot, affect your shot, but above all the dynamics of the course and the behavior of the ball, such as wind, elevation, terrain reactions, ball drop and more. Below is a complete list of aspects that affect the sample:

  • club
  • Type of shot
  • The shape of the shot
  • The slope of the terrain
  • Reducing speed and rotation in unfavorable terrain (such as rough)
  • Characteristics of the golfer, club and ball
  • Power boost
  • Implementation of Swing
  • Wind
  • Spin Control in flight
  • Height
  • Ball reactions depending on the type of terrain and field conditions
  • Dribbling the ball
