Web-based Tiger Woods unveiled

PGA Tour Online coming to PC this autumn

EA's unveiled a web browser-based Tiger Woods for PC, called PGA Tour Online.

PGA Tour Online is said to be an "authentic golf simulation" that's dynamically streamed to a web browser and requires no game installation, no disc, and no additional peripherals. A bit like Quake Live, then.

Players will be able suspend play at any time and resume from the exact same point later on, EA says.

At launch, the game will include several world class championship courses, says EA, such as Pebble Beach, TPC Sawgrass and St. Andrews, while additional new courses will be available on a regular basis.

A "fully stocked" schedule of tournaments is planned for the game, says EA, and the community will apparently help shape PGA Tour Online's evolution, including new course additions, pro shop items and tournament conditions.

"Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online is for anyone who loves golf and is on-the-go," said exec producer Mike Taramykin. "Whether you have ten minutes on your PC in the office, or hours on your Mac at home, this is a golf game that makes time for you. With Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online, golf lovers can satisfy their golf fix anytime."

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online will be offered through a "multi-tiered subscription" this autumn.
