EA has announced that Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 will launch on March 27 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Developed by EA Tiburon, the 2013 version promises to add Kinect support, social features, and an overview of Woods' golf legacy--presumably without the public shame and divorce bits. EA also touted a "Masters Collector's Edition," with a few bells and whistles of its own.

The announcement promises players more control over their swing, stance, and ball position, along with Kinect and Move integration. You can pick from among 22 licensed golfers, and form your own exclusive country clubs to team up with friends. And, as with many other EA Sports games, Tiger 13 will participate in EA Sports' "Season Ticket" program, letting subscribers get digital access to the game three days before it hits retail.

If you pick up the Masters Collector's Edition, you'll get the Augusta National Golf Club's Tournament practice facility, the Par 3 course, a Green Jacket presentation, and five additional championship courses. It will be priced at $69.99, ten bucks above the standard edition.

Check out the trailer below.

      Interesting:
      Virtual coins can be used to purchase tee times on downloadable courses or pin packs which can allow for accelerated performance during gameplay.

      Sounds like they might be doing some kind of Tiger Woods Online model where you can either buy the courses outright or use coins just to play the odd hole on them?

        Also:
        In Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13, gamers will be able to invite friends to join their own exclusive country club and team up to gain quicker access to downloadable golf courses or compete against other club members for the coveted Club Championship.

        I wonder what that's all about.

      I hope full on kinect support means better move integration and navigation as well. It's easier to explain how to use a regular controller than the move in TW12 because it's one thing rather than multiple devices. It'd be a lot better if you only needed the wand for everything rather than the navigator/controller for simple shit like changing clubs. Move support felt really tacked on.
