The Golf Club - Next-Gen golf for PS4

[ Edited ]
22 replies 2356 views Edited Feb 9, 2014

A couple of weeks ago, HB Studios announced the forthcoming Spring, 2014 release of The Golf Club, for the PS4.  I know there had been some disappointment registered here about the lack of a golf game for the PS4 among the launch titles.   I really wasn't expecting anything until EA Sports releases their next golf game in March of 2015, or maybe Clap Hanz released a PS4 version of Hot Shots Golf early next year.

 

HB Studios took everybody by surprise by announcing that The Golf Club will have a pretty powerful course creator as part of the package.  It also looks like it will play a decent game of golf, although it's focus will be more on realism than Hot Shots Golf or Tiger Woods PGA Tour in Amateur or Pro difficulty levels.  It will have a very flexible online component that will be the first to allow live, cross-platform play between PS4, XB1, and PC gamers!  

 

Here's a link to the official website.  They have a gameplay and a course creation video linked there.  I'd be curious to see what you think about this:

Rowja, Interesting information but you posted in PS HOME forums. Not sure how much feedback you'll receive here.

 

Edit: Moved to PlayStation General forum.

Thanks for putting this in its proper place Emmental-er.  I haven't posted here since the board was renovated.

This looks interesting, especially as EA aren't doing a TW15 for the PS4.

 

I always enjoyed golf on the PS3, I have high hopes for this one, I'll be keeping track of it now.

 

I'd still love Clap Hanz to do a PS4 version too!

BRIT-KO, EA Sports had discussed hiring HB Studios to do the '15 version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour, for the PS3 and XBox 360, prior to EA Sports parting company with Tiger Woods.  HB Studios said that they were going to go ahead with "The Golf Club" anyway, but I don't think we'd be seeing it now if they'd had resources tied up in the production of Tiger '15.  

 

I have little doubt that Clap Hanz will make a version of Hot Shots Golf for the PS4, but if they repeat their track record from the PS3 version, it will be the fall of 2015 before we see it, at best.

It was EA Sports, not Microsoft.

This game looks and sounds good but it needs to have 3 key things to get my money:

 

  1. Move support for PS4
  2. Social and multi-player support
  3. The right price ($39.99 or less)
