The Golf Club is Out Today on Steam

Though a release date has yet to be announced for The Golf Club on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, the game released today for PC through Steam Early Access. It’s available at a discount for the next seven days with the price now at $ 30 with a jump to $ 35 later. The Xbox One and PS4 versions are said to release “soon” so it may just be a matter of certification with it landing next week or the following week.

The Golf Club is the only sim golf game expected to release in 2014 as EA Sports PGA Tour (formerly Tiger Woods) is taking the year off. Though there is no golfer or course licensing the game features a very detailed course creator with the ability for consumers to share them freely and use online and very minimal loading times. 

ABOUT THE GAME
The Golf Club is HB Studios’ next generation golf simulation. Stunning visual presentation and outstanding gameplay are to be expected but what really takes The Golf Club into the next generation is the procedural generation of courses and depth of social interaction. The Course Creator can generate a brand new course in seconds which can be shared and played immediately online with friends and other gamers across the world. There are also full editing capabilities for courses, Tournaments and Tours. Challenge your friends on a new or existing course in real time or try to beat their best recorded round. Add to this a myriad of stat tracking and personal bests of friends and rivals to beat, notifications, challenges and social media integration and you truly have a golf club worth joining.

INTUITIVE CONTROL SYSTEM
We’ve created and fine tuned a swing mechanic that is more about feeling and fluidity above the users’ accuracy of hitting a marker on a power bar. Whilst anyone will be able to pick the controller up and play comfortably, the best players on the global leaderboards will be those with the best feel for the different golf shots and who are able to take into account ball lie, weather and terrain conditions.

During a recent livestream, Rayman Creator Michel Ancel showed off a piece of concept art for Jade from Beyond Good & Evil, which suggested that it would be her new design in Beyond Good & Evil 2. As it turns out, that Jade image “was concept art created from the original [Beyond Good & Evil],” Ancel told IGN.

There was some potentially good news given about Beyond Good & Evil 2 from Ancel though:

Working on Rayman Legends was a nice, early holiday. So we are going to make serious games now. Beyond Good & Evil [is] a good candidate for making a real, serious game now.

Enough holidays.
