The Golf Club

Post by FWG Unky Al on Wed 16 Apr 2014 - 12:20

I must admit I can't wait for this. It should make a refreshing change from the old golf games trotted out by EA

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 PlayStation 4, XBox One and PC. 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.



Instantaneous Gameplay
No loading times between holes means you are straight back on the Tee after sinking your putt on the previous green. Also, minimal loading times into a new course make for a refreshing change to your typical console game.



Unlimited Courses
No more getting bored of the courses given to you by the developer. With four clicks you can generate a unique course never seen before that’s ready to play.



Generate Courses
With four clicks of a button from the main menu the game will generate for you a never been played before course. The variation is infinite!

If you don’t like the course that’s been generated, one click and you can generate a new one.

If you want to tailor the courses a little more there are high-level options available to you. Examples of these are the number of holes, par distribution, fairway width, number of bunkers, green size, green slope and rough coverage.



Edit and Create your own Courses
If you have a particular course in mind, want to use your creative skills to create something from scratch or edit something the generator has created for you the game also has an in-depth editor.

The editor gives you the ability of create from scratch or mould anything on the course. You can alter the terrain, move tees, move greens, move holes, delete holes, add holes, bunkers, rivers, ponds, trees, foliage, buildings, animals and other objects.

During editing you can play the ball from any spot to review holes and make changes as you see fit. The minimal loading times make this practical and enjoyable.



Large Selection of Pre-Designed Courses Shipping With The Game
Courses for all skill levels and utilizing the best of HB’s creative talents will ship with the game. They can be played individually but will also make up the tournament itinerary for the pre-designed Tour that also comes with the game.



Local Multiplayer
Up to four players can play locally. Differentiate yourselves with different character models and clothing and choose between stroke play, match play or fourball.



Online Sharing And Play
Play others creations - work your way through the huge database of user created courses, each rated by other users to help make the decision easy to make.

Share your courses with the World – when you’re happy with your creations you can publish them for the rest of the world to play.

Play against others live or from the past - each round you play on every course is saved Online. Choose from Friends Rounds, Record Rounds or Rivals Rounds (others players close to your ability) to compete against. Their ghost balls and scores will be visible throughout your round giving you the feeling of competition without losing the instantaneous game play. Ghost and live balls can be hidden if so desired either selectively or en masse.

Compete in Tours and Tournaments – play against other players throughout the world in user made tours and tournaments.

Watch others play the courses you’re on live – through our ball trace system you can see other users from around the world on the course that you are playing live, even if they’re on different holes.



Tours and Tournaments
Create and share Tours and Tournaments made up of your favourite courses to test your friends’ or players worldwide over a number of rounds and courses.

These can be Time Constrained or Indefinite. You can choose a start and end date with just one entry per player or, if your tournament or tour is indefinite, you can allow players to enter as many times as they want to try and get to the top of the leaderboard.



Social Feeds and Messages
You will be kept up to date with the world of The Golf Club through a fully interactive social ticker bar and an in-game message feed

To create a truly competitive world the messages will tell you:

•Friends achievements and creations
•Friends currently playing
•When your records on courses are broken
•Invites from friends to play
•Major achievements from all players within The Golf Club
With one press of a button you can interact with these messages. Immediately join your friends on a round or regain your record by jumping to the course and / or hole where the record was broken. All rounds are constantly saved so you can return to your previous game whenever you want to and play from where you left it.

Sounds very interesting. Got to admit, I used to really enjoy the odd round on TW but not enough to want to shell out for a new one every year for the sake of the odd new course.

Something with a shelf life of more than 12 month (and this would have a potentially very long span given the ability to generate courses) would definitely interest me Smile

"Golf bat" would have been intentional.

Golf has got to be the most boring "sport" ever, it's right up there with cricket  Shocked . Unless it involves getting the ball in a clowns mouth or through the windmill of course.
Electronic golf on the other hand can be a laugh, not so sure on the Kinect though, not striking a ball or having the wieght of the club in hand won't have the same "feel", just waving your arms around.

Indeed golf bat.. golf stick.. but they dont look much like a club. Clubs look like:


or

sometimes

and even


I do like a bit o golf myself. First TW was ok - but then they just never seemed to change year in year out. Less polished than a very unpolished thing. Teeit up golf in the arcade was IMHO way more polished. I know it wasnt realistic - but it seemed like they cared - but tiger games were just same old same old every year. Might be into this tho but... which platform however im not so sure. Xbox one being one of the divils tools n all Smile

Golf game with bats n stuff. Fuck bastard hard no power gauge or 3 click wibble. Seems decent enough and has online though.
No progressio n shit either - but it does what it says on the tin. You whack the ball it goes (mostly) down the fairway.
Theres social pish - my dad is bigger than your dad kinda stuff (and by dad I mean score and by bigger I mean lower).
Theres also a course editor so you can play on courses that look like huge titties n stuff.
