If you haven’t played Everybody’s Golf on the PS Vita in a while, now is the time! As some of you may already know, we recently released a feature update (patch 1.05). This long awaited update adds the following features:
Too busy to join a tournament online at a given time/date? Not to worry! By introducing this “Turn-based Challenge” mode, you can now challenge your friends in an asynchronous competition and play head to head, hole by hole.
Players can now also set up 20 different parallel games at any given time. To avoid cheating, there are no re-dos, similar to Daily Tourneys. Short messages (like SMS) are also now enabled, as well as competitive score history between friends.
Additional gameplay updates include:
- Four-player stroke mode enabled in the multiplayer rooms
- A slot mode added to the online/adhoc, enabling a slot machine style handicap system applied per hole to keep the game interesting in case there is an imbalance between player skills
- We’ve also added a new visual lobby in the online space, and tweaked the game balance a little bit
New DLC content
The classic Mt. Sakura returns from Everybody’s Golf on PS2, great for advanced and novice players alike. Those of you who have been with us over the years can reminisce, while those of you who are just joining us can experience some of our great courses from the past.
Another course we are bringing back is Northern Fox. This too is a novice-friendly course, but don’t be fooled — there are some tricky course designs here and there. Both Mt. Sakura and Northern Fox have been revamped completely and look great in today’s resolution standards.
Last but not least, we’re also adding a brand new golf course named Mar Cielo. Surrounded by emerald green waters, this pretty beach resort style golf course is sure to keep the intermediate and advanced players challenged. Don’t get too relaxed on this beautiful golf resort, and watch for the landscapes and obstacles we’ve thrown in there.
We’re also adding new characters to the game: Erika, Gloria and Kat from the PS Vita fan-favourite Gravity Rush. Kat is very much intrigued with her discovery of golf, and is gravitating to the sport with a great deal of curiosity.
These new courses and characters will be available next Wednesday when PlayStation Store updates. Each character will cost €0.75, with the courses going for €2.49 each. You’ll be able to grab the whole set for €7.49.
So once again, a big thanks to everyone for your patience. We’re happy to finally offer the extended features and DLC available on Everybody’s Golf Happy golfing!
