Rory McIlroy PGA Tour’s special edition will let you play through the rain

1 min read


What do you look for in a collector’s edition of a game? Maybe it’s a fancy art book. Maybe you want a beautiful resin statue to put on your shelf that you can gawk at and convince yourself that all those Rands spent were well worth it. I on the other hand, prefer practical collector’s editions of games. And since it looks quite rainy today, I think I might just pre-order Rory McIlroy PGA Tour.

Because the special edition of that game comes with an umbrella. Yes, an actual umbrella. Behold! It’s quite fabulous.


There is of course, a catch to all of this. And that’s that the umbrella is exclusive to UK retailer GAME. But just look at it! Features include:

  • EA Sports branding
  • Bleeding edge water-deflection system
  • Can be used as a makeshift weapon for any skilled practitioner of Bartitsu
  • Did I mention that it’s great at keeping you dry?
  • Extra smugness at watching the peasants around you get wet
  • Good for poking people?
  • No really, it’ll keep you dry I can’t stress this enough
  • This one time, I used an umbrella to help fend off an alien invasion. It also kept me dry that day

It’s a an odd and boring pre-order bonus to add to the game, but then again, that perfectly describes golf in a nutshell. Still, it’s better than that other pre-order bonus that GAME got into hot water over a few years ago, with Dead Island. After all, who wanted to a memento of a great zombie survival-horror game, that was essentially a dismembered and bloody torso?

    I’d buy it for the umbrella, but only if it’s the same one The Kingsman uses.

    Wow, if his game lets you play in the rain I can’t WAIT to see what Tiger’s will allow.

    Better come in till this blows over.

    What do you think, fella?

    Carl Spackler:
    I’d keep playing. I don’t think the heavy stuff’s gonna come down for quite awhile.

    You’re right. Anyway, the Good Lord would never disrupt the best game of my life.

    Oh RAT FART!

    At least it will be easier to spot people you may want to avoid if they’re walking around with a collector’s edition brolly.
