From 1998-2013, Tiger Woods was the face of EA Sports' golf division. EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf was a staple among golf fans that were looking to play as their favorite golfers on their favorite video game console.

In 2013, EA Sports ended their 16 year relationship with Woods and the game took a temporary hiatus while the company decided who the new face would be. We now have that answer.

EA Sports released the cover of their 2015 edition and Palm Beach Gardens resident and World #1 Rory Mcllroy is the new cover of the game. In addition, like Woods, the game will be named after Rory, titled EA Sports Rory Mcllroy PGA Tour Golf.

The game is expected to be released in June on the PS4 and XBOX ONE and will offer users more diverse playing options.

"When you grow up playing golf you never really dream of being a character in a video game, let alone the guy on the box," McIlroy told GolfDigest.com. "The technology powering the game is incredible. The courses are absolutely gorgeous, and looking at screenshots from the game you think someone just took a photo of the actual holes."

EA also revealed that Frank Nobilo of the Golf Channel and CBS Sports and Rich Lerner of the Golf Channel will provide the game's commentary.

With the naming of Rory Mcllroy to the cover, EA released a brand new trailer as well that can be seen below:
