PGA Tour 2K21 DLC brings a bit of basketball to the fairway

by | Oct 29, 2021 | PGA 2K21

2K and HB Studios have announced new content for their PGA Tour 2K21 golf game: basketball. That said, they’re adding logo gear to the PGA Tour title as part of a crossover from the sports game series for all 30 NBA teams.


I hope the equipment on offer is a bit more varied than just an NBA team logo on a black top, but both shirts and hats will be available for your MyPLAYER characters in the in-game shop.

Black t-shirts and colored caps seem to be the NBA gear on offer.

The newly announced cosmetics are just arriving as EA Sports made a big announcement for their rival golf game, stating that they have secured exclusive license to the four major championships that are part of the annual golf tour for the title in development. While both 2K and EA have licenses for the overall PGA Tour, the four majors of the PGA Tour 2K21 are fictional versions of themselves, while EA now has the actual Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship, the US Open Championship and the Open Championship.

This brewing rivalry for the best golf game is unexpected, but a welcome one for golf fans who ran out of options with the PS4 and Xbox One generations. We hope that the competition will spur both development teams on to more innovation and a better presentation of the sport.

PGA Tour 2K21 came out last August and renamed The Golf Club to focus on the PGA license. In our review, Nick said:

PGA 2K21 is one hell of a good game of golf. It’s solidly controlled and there’s a good learning curve as you get used to the more advanced types of shots. Still, I can’t help but be a little disappointed with the overall experience. What should have been a hole-in-one return on a licensed golf series feels like it’s just about reaching par.
