Electronic Arts Announces Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08

Electronic Arts today made Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 official.

For the first time ever, the Tiger Woods series finds itself in development at EA Tiburon Studios, the EA team behind the hit Madden NFL Football and NASCAR franchises. The company has decided to heat things up a bit with the inclusion of two all-new groundbreaking features never-before-seen in an EA Sports title.

First off is EA Sports GamerNet, which the company is describing as a “revolutionary game play system driven by interactive user created content.” What does all that mean exactly, you ask? Gamers will be able to save their shots, holes or rounds and post them online for users all around the globe to compete against.

The other addition is Photo Game Face, which will “generate photo-realistic game characters with no artistic skill required, by uploading photos.” Players will be able to take their created characters and modify them how they see fit. Unfortunately, the company gave so specific information as to which platforms would be receiving either new feature.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 will be available on the Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Sony PSP, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS and the PC. Release information has not yet been given.
