PGA Tour 2K21 will hit Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and Stadia Aug. 21, 2K announced Thursday.

The latest in the line of golf simulators, 2K21 will feature customizable player characters and 12 playable PGA Tour professionals, including cover star Justin Thomas.

"Being chosen to be the first-ever cover athlete for the premiere PGA Tour 2K game is a tremendous honor," Thomas said in a statement. "I'm excited to join the 2K family and challenge players everywhere on the digital links."

Players will be able to golf on 15 licensed PGA Tour courses or make their own courses using the Course Designer. PGA Tour 2K21 features a career mode plus local and online multiplayer, with action narrated by broadcaster Luke Elvy and analyst Rich Beem.

PGA Tour 2K21 is being developed by HB Studios, the same studio responsible for The Golf Club 2019 Featuring PGA Tour — the previous game in the confusingly titled series.

Pre-ordering will unlock an Adidas cosmetic pack including special golf shoes and custom 2K and Adidas gear.
