Published

on

There are two different versions of PGA Tour 2K21. If you plan on buying the game ahead of its release date you’ll want to make sure to pick the right one for your interest level and budget.

2K Games has partnered with HB Studios, the studio behind The Golf Club, to release PGA Tour 2K21. The game is heading is headed to the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia, and PC via Steam.

Assuming it doesn’t get delayed, the PGA Tour 2K21 release date lands on August 21st or just a few weeks ahead of NBA 2K21 for current-gen platforms.

If you know you want to play PGA 2K21 ASAP, you can buy a copy for your platform of choice right now. Retailers are taking pre-orders.

There are two ways to buy the game. There’s the standard version and there’s a Digital Deluxe version that comes with some additional bonuses at an added cost.

In this guide to the PGA Tour 2K21 editions we’ll take you through each version of the game and help you pick the correct version for your Xbox One, PS4, Windows PC, or Nintendo Switch.

PGA Tour 2K21 Standard Edition

The most basic version of the game is the standard edition.

The standard edition retails for $59.99, but you might be able to find a pre-release deal through a third-party retailer. We occasionally see price cuts ahead of a game’s release so keep an eye out as we push toward the game’s release.

We’ll probably see PGA Tour 2K21 deals during Black Friday and the holidays so if you don’t want to spend anything close to $60 for this game, you might want to wait.

If you do decide to pre-order a copy of the standard edition you get some bonus items that might come in handy during your time with the game.

  • People who don’t have a ton of time to play games and aren’t sure how much time they can or want to invest in a golf simulation.

You can buy the PGA Tour 2K21 Standard Edition at retailers like Amazon.

PGA Tour 2K21 Digital Deluxe Edition

The Digital Deluxe edition is a little more expensive than the standard bundle, but it comes with some additional items.

For $69.99 you get the aforementioned pre-order bonus, 2300 in the game’s currency, and the Golden Touch Pack. The pack includes a gold-plated putter and gold-plated 10.5 driver.

Physical vs. Digital

You’ll also need to decide between the physical and digital versions of PGA Tour 2K21. Like its name suggests, the Digital Deluxe version is digital only. However, the standard edition also comes in physical form.

If you buy the game with a disc, you’ll be able to sell it to a retailer like GameStop for credit toward another game after you get bored. You’ll also be able to sell it on a site like eBay or Craigslist for cash.

Buying a physical copy of the game also lets you easily lend the game to a friend, family member, or co-worker if they want to try before buying or if you get sick of it.

If you buy a digital copy of PGA Tour 2K21, you’ll be able to avoid clutter building up around your entertainment center and you’ll also avoid potential damage to the disc.

If you sometimes misplace games or have kids who like to fling discs around the house like a frisbee, you might want to go with the digital version.

There’s also added convenience. Instead of digging through a sleeve of games or searching around the house looking for your game disc, you can start up your console and start playing immediately.

Buying the digital version should allow you to pre-load the game ahead of its release in August. Pre-loading will allow you to start playing the second it’s released.
