Developer EA Sports has released a new video highlighting the Microsoft Xbox Kinect capabilities of the upcoming Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 gaming release.
Introducing Xbox Kinect compatibility to the golfing franchise for the first time, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 will see gamers offered the change to make use of their controller-free motion gaming peripheral to make shots simply by replicating a natural golfing action.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 Features
Allowing users to swing their arms in order to make a shot in the game, the Kinect abilities of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 appear less fluid than hoped with users required to stand face on to the screen swinging sideways as to the usual side stance, forward swing motion adopted in golf.
With Kinect enabled voice commands further reducing the need for a physical controller, the upcoming addition to the Tiger Woods gaming collection is set to feature an all new game mode entitled the Tiger Legacy Challenge.
“Tiger Legacy Challenge will let you relive first-hand Tiger Woods' most memorable golf accomplishments as he rises from a child prodigy to a golfing legend; starting from Tiger's appearance on the Mike Douglas Show when he was just two years old,” an official EA Sports spokesperson has said.
“Your challenge throughout the mode is to play through Tiger's historic career and then help him reach his ultimate goal of breaking Jack Nicklaus' fabled major championship record.”
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 Release Date
Set to land in the lead up to the first golf major of the year, the 2012 Augusta National, also known as the Masters, a Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 UK release date has been set for March 30th.
Continuing the dominant gaming franchise, the latest addition to the Tiger Woods branded series will land with a £39.99 price tag. A Masters Special Edition copy of the game will be available for £44.99.
