Now that Tiger Woods is no longer on the box, it seems that EA Sports has been given the creative freedom to go a little bonkers with its first next-gen golf simulation. Indeed, the boringly named PGA Tour's first trailer shows a combination of famous courses and fantasy ones – including one which takes place near to a shipwrecked battleship. You didn’t see that one coming, did you?

The next-gen release will deploy next spring, and will be powered by DICE’s proprietary Frostbite 3 engine, which sort of makes sense considering all of the explosions and pyrotechnics. Seriously, we’re not sure who came up with this bonkers concept, but it’s definitely going to fill the PlayStation 4’s gaping Hot Shots Golf shaped hole.
