There was a time when sports games Trophies bordered on the impossible, and that’s still somewhat the case with the NBA 2K series. But the developers of Madden NFL and MLB The Show have toned down the requirements in recent years, and EA Sports PGA Tour looks like it’ll have a pretty easy Platinum to unlock.
Originally due out this week, the title was delayed slightly to align with the Masters, but that’s not stopped its virtual PS5 pots from hitting Sony’s servers. And this looks like it’ll have a pretty straightforward route to PlayStation’s prestigious silver-blue Trophy, as all you’ll really need to do is win tournaments like the US Open and FedExCup.
We’re going to assume there’ll be difficulty toggles, so this should be pretty easy. The hardest Trophies pertain to hitting a hole in one and holing from over 100 yards out. Aside from that, you’ll need to win a single online head-to-head game, and will need to shoot 59 or lower on an 18-hole course. And that’s it: there are just 19 Trophies in total, including the Platinum!
Makes complete sense to me. I guess itll sell a decent amount but you'll definitely get the trophy hunting crowd in for that one.
Just 19? The Madden Trophy lists have become heavily truncated as well - they used to have 40 Trophies but Madden 22 (on PS4) went as low as 17. They just can't be bothered but perhaps it's for the best.
Waiting to see if they add a 60 fps mode. Can't fathom a golf game in 30 FPS at this point.
This needs to be a vast improvement on their last one.. Rory McIlroy 'whatever it was'... Although trophy hunters loved that one too . Took a couple days to get the plat if it remember correctly and that was without really having to veer from the main gameplay too much
Hopefully, the shot options alone, will help it reach its potential, but look forward to a review.. come a long way since Birdie Barrage and Leaderboard that's for sure
@WavesOfActivity I was unaware it was only going to run at 30 on console, that is majorly disappointing! I might be holding off as well now thanks for the info
EDIT: I just read this on the EA website: we’ve heard community feedback surrounding the fps of the game on console. As a result, we’re examining the ability to add it into the game in the future.
Hopefully that's a good sign of a performance mode coming sooner rather than later
@WavesOfActivity I forgot about this. Ridiculous if true...
"win a single online head-to-head game" - I'm out. 🤣
It's a good job it won't take long to platinum, as in my rare experience with EA sport games, the servers go off pretty quickly after the next one comes out.
