Skills Challenge powered by EA SPORTS Cross Play

Hey golfers, Christian Brandt here to quickly tell you about the brand-new Skills Challenge mode in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13. Skills Challenge is a simple feature where you’ll get rewarded for reaching specific milestones in game such as eagles made, birdies made, FIRs, GIRs and more. Rewards will consist of either lump sum status or coins bonuses of varying amounts, and the most interesting part is that you’ll be able to significantly increase your bonuses through our new technology, EA SPORTS Cross Play.

EA SPORTS Cross Play is the first step into a broader, more rewarding EA SPORTS golf gaming experience. Using Cross Play, we’re (EA SPORTS) able to reward you for your play on other EA SPORTS golf games, including EA SPORTS PGA TOUR Golf Challenge on Facebook and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online. Simply sign into those games with your same Origin ID (formerly your EA ID) as you use on your console game, complete the Skills Challenges by playing all three, and you’ll receive INCREASED BONUS rewards.

More details on this exciting new mode are below. Get a head start today and go sign up for free:

Find EA SPORTS Skills Challenge powered by Cross Play in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13:

When you first login to the game, you can either shortcut from the notifications banner or select Skills Challenge under Game Modes.

The main Skills Challenge hub displays all the current challenges. Two types are available, (1) Timed Based and (2) Persistent. Timed Based will be available for a "limited-time-only", and will provide for a higher reward payout in a shorter amount of time. Persistent challenges will consist of five challenges and will always be available. Check the Skills Challenge hub regularly so you don’t miss out on special Time Based challenges!

How Skills Challenge + Cross Play works: anytime you score a birdie in any of the games you participate in, it will contribute to completing the challenge (remember to be sure you’re signed in with the same Origin ID in each game) . Every time you complete the challenge, you’ll will be given a reward – the more different games you play to complete the reward, the higher the payout. An additional tip: EA SPORTS Season Ticket holders will enjoy even greater bonus rewards!
