It looks like the next couple of weeks are going to be a good two weeks for fans of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour video game series. Not only have they got the console release – PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii – of the Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 title to look forward to, but also the arrival of the game on iOS.
Electronic Arts’ golfing simulation game is due to arrive on the Apple App Store sometime this month, which according to a recent article by Eli Hodapp over at toucharcade.com could be Thursday 24th or Thursday 31st. The article also provides a few details about the upcoming iPhone / iPod Touch game.
A great new feature in the upcoming app is the ‘closest to the pin’ Facebook challenge, which is said to take place twice a week. Just like the ability to compete with friends in the Bejeweled 2 game using Facebook, players will be able to take a shot on a par 3 hole and see who can get the nearest to the hole.
The game will also include the ‘Tiger Challenge,’ which is a variety of mini-games that can earn players in-game cash. The cash earned can then be used to boost your golfer’s stats or on the entrée fee of PGA events. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 comes with 8 courses, 8 PGA pros to play as and 4 different game modes.
