First it was Tiger Woods, then Rory McIlroy, and now World No. 4 Justin Thomas has become the latest face of the PGA Tour gaming franchise.
The 12-time PGA Tour winner features on the cover of PGA Tour 2K21, which is due to launch worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia on August 21.
“Being chosen to be the first-ever cover athlete for the premiere PGA TOUR 2K game is a tremendous honour,” said Thomas. “I’m excited to join the 2K family and challenge players everywhere on the digital links.”
The all-new PGA Tour 2K21 will include 15 licensed PGA Tour courses, each of which was scanned using cutting-edge technology to bring the fairways, greens, bunkers, trees, lakes and ponds to life. Among the courses featured include Riviera Country Club, TPC Deere Run, TPC Scottsdale, TPC Sawgrass, East Lake Golf Club, TPC Twin Cities, Innisbrook and TPC San Antonio. Players can also design their own greens and fairways with thousands of custom options in the ‘Course Designer’ programme.
