Electronic Arts, one of the ace video game developers and pioneers in developing sports based titles have announced that their next venture – ‘Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14’, will feature a ‘Masters Historic Edition’ that allows the players to travel back in time and play the reputed game of golf, as it was then.
One of the main features of the game is the addition of the ‘Augusta National Golf club,’ the host of the first and the foremost Masters Tournament. With this title, the gamers will get a chance to step back in time and experience the feel and look of the renowned golf club, when it was known as the ‘Inaugural Augusta National Invitation Tournament’ in 1934.
This classic mode of the game will also focus on re-creating the environment of the 1930’s and every other element including the golfing equipments, the attire and the terrain. Developers claim that a lot of effort has been put in towards the detailing, so that the gamers get an authentic golfing experience of the bygone era. They have also claimed that the roll out of such a mode is an initiative to familiarize the younger generation of golfers with some of the legends of the game and giving them an insight into the evolution of one of the greatest sporting events of all times.
The legendary edition of the title will also include interesting features like:
- A pro version copy of EA’s latest Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14
- An overview of the layout of the 1934 Augusta National
- The current day view of the epic course
- Access to Augusta National’s practice facility
- Access to 3 Par course of Augusta National
- The original song of Augusta will be played
- Green Jacket ceremony
The game also includes other interesting modes that incline away from the Masters Historic Edition, such as:

Massive Inclusion of Championship Courses:

Play as Legends:
With this title, the players can take up the role of some of the veterans of the bygone era such as Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and others or the pros of the modern day like Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, Ricky Fowler and others.
Real-time Weather Conditions:
For the first time ever, this title brings in the night mode, where the players can play a match of golf at night. Also to be included are the features like real-time weather feeds and changing daylights according to time.
