EA has just revealed that they are working on two new titles for the iPhone: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 and EA Sports Active 2.0. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 was essentially a given for the iPhone and iPod touch. The game will feature many minor improvements to the overall gameplay, but the biggest addition is the Ryder Cup. When participating in the Ryder Cup, you will be able to choose from the U.S. or European squad and participate in the various competition formats including foursomes, fourballs, and singles. Tiger Woods will head the U.S. team and Rory McIlroy will represent the Europeans. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 is set to launch for the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, and iPhone platforms on June 8th. iPhone platforms possibly meaning and iPad version as well? The original EA Sports Active was launched as a Wii-only title and was targeted as a more intense competitor to Wii Fit. EA Spots Active 2.0, as it is being tentatively called, will be launching for the Wii, PS3, iPhone and iPod touch. The game will feature even more energetic workouts than the original and will also include a heart rate monitor, leg and arm straps each with their own motion sensors and a new online hub to track and share workout data. We're not exactly sure at this point if any of the attachments will actually be available for the iPhone and iPod touch versions of the game, although without some sort of attachment you would be required to flail your idevice around while working out. I guess we will just have to wait and see. EA Sports Active 2.0 should be available sometime this fall. If and when we obtain more information regarding these two titles, we will be sure to pass it along.
