Tiger Woods '13: New Video and Pre-Order Bonuses

By Keith Gray, 4 years ago
Many of you may already be aware of the methods and technology with which developers, such as EA Sports, the team behind the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise, use to create the uber-realistic environments and characters in many of the games we play today.

However, if you're unsure about how exactly this is done, or you want a more in-depth look, then you can thank Electronic Arts for providing an insight. The developer has released a new video for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13. The latest footage shows American golfer, Bubba Watson doing what he does best, all whilst kitted out in a state-of-the-art Mo-Cap suit (that's motion capture to us mere mortals). Bubba also gives his views on a couple of aspects of the upcoming golf-sim iteration.



If that new footage has convinced you to part with your hard-earned cash in order to grab a wedge (rather than a slice) of the golfing action, then listen up! A selection of retailer-specific pre-order bonuses has been announced. The details of each are as follows:

Gamestop

Gamers who pre-order a standard copy of the title or the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector's Edition from Gamestop will receive an exclusive download of Wolf Creek Golf Club.

Tucked into the northeast corner in Mesquite, Nevada - is carved beautifully out of the desert. The course will test your game with its stunning layout, overwhelm you with its dazzling beauty and its breathtaking views... all at the same time. Step to the tee - sometimes 100 feet above lush green-striped fairways - and be prepared for the thrill ride of a lifetime
Subscribers to Gamestop's Power Up Rewards scheme will receive "an allotment of virtual coins which can be used to purchase tee times on downloadable courses or pin packs which can allow for accelerated performance during gameplay"

Amazon

Gamers who pre-order a standard copy of the title or the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector's Edition from Amazon will receive a golfer foursome unlock, which includes "Ice Hockey legend Jeremy Roenick, Football Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk, Basketball super-star Dwight Howard and Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard".

Best Buy

Gamers who pre-order a standard copy of the title or the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector's Edition from Best Buy will receive an exclusive download of the Emerald Dragon Fantasy Golf Course.

The Emerald Dragon... is set in the shadow of Japan’s iconic Mount Fuji. The cherry blossom lined Emerald River guides your path through undulating greens, stair stepped fairways, and deceptively decorative bunkers. Challenge your strategic game with split fairways, abundant water, and rolling elevation as you wind your way through the course and come face to face with the Emerald Dragon itself!
.
Walmart

Gamers who pre-order a standard copy of the title or the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector's Edition from Walmart will receive a "free expert drive and putter unlock... hit the ball further and putt the ball more accurately with this free offer".

With all those US exclusive pre-order options available it seems only fair(way) that UK gamers aren't buried knee-deep in a bunker. That's why Blockbuster.co.uk has seen fit to provide its very own pre-order bonus.

How does hitting the golf course playing as your favourite football star sound? Well, the exclusive DLC content on offer will allow UK gamers that opportunity. Wayne Rooney, James Milner, Petr Cech and Theo Walcott will all feature.

TW13 - Wayne Rooney

TW13 - James Milner

TW13 - Petr Cech

TW13 - Theo Walcott

You still have time to choose your preferred pre-order bonus, as Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 remains on course for release on March 27th and 30th in North America and Europe respectively. Release dates for other territories have yet to be confirmed.
