The Golf Club Brings Asynchronous Procedurally Generated Golf to PS4 this Summer
Nothing will make me happier than to finally play a golf game on PlayStation 4 and HB Studios is positioned to be the first to deliver my happiness. The Golf Club will arrive on PS4 with procedurally generated courses and a full course editor. Call it the LittleBigPlanet of golf games if you will.
HB Studios has been around the block. Their focus has always been on all different types of sports games with much of their legacy works attributed toward supplying EA Sports, Majesco and Atari with various football, soccer, and basketball games. Their latest football offering goes to Madden 13 on Vita and Wii. Lately, they’ve been all up the mobile space and The Golf Club will also be available on PC via Steam.
The Canadian developer has the sports game dev chops, but will it get any competition within the year? With Tiger gone, will EA have their stuff together for a new PGA Tour golfing franchise? And when will the world see a new Hot Shots Golf!?!
