It’s been a while since we’ve seen a good golf game come to video game consoles. However, I am very excited to learn about the new golf game coming to Xbox One and PS4 as well as PC (I run Mac computers, so this does me no good).
Rory Mcilroy was a decent game, but it never felt like a complete game to me. I played it a handful of times and got bored with it. Heres what we know about the new game!
EA Sports isn’t the only player in the market anymore
EA sports has done a decent job over the last few years trying to improve their games, however, golf hasn’t really been their main focus. Ever since Tiger Woods games went away, it just hasn’t felt like we have got a complete game.
However, the new creator is HB Studios, which is the maker of The Golf Club. The new game is slated to come out in 2019.
Will there finally be a respectable career mode?
The new career mode is rumored to have you start off as a player that has to qualify through Q-School, and then go to the web.com tour and eventually hit the big stage with the PGA Tour.
This sounds like a great idea, but I would like to see you be able to start playing at any level of the tour you want. Sometimes playing through the introductory content, in this case, Q-School and the web.com can feel monotonous and unengaging which, depending on how long it would take me to get through these stages will depend on how long I want to play the game for.
Hopefully, there is enough content to make the game real
We need to see a few things in this game in order for it to be a success. I know it may take some time to get all the licenses, and courses set up properly, but I would like to see somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 real courses.
They should also include the South Course at Firestone in Akron (because that’s where I’m from) and it’s a legitimately great course to play.
So far the courses rumored to be in the game are TPC Bostom, TPC Deere Run, TPC Southwind, TPC Summerlin, TPC Sawgrass and TPC Scottsdale. I’m really hoping as the game progresses and we learn more about it that more courses are revealed. After all, the game won’t be a true golf game without the Masters.
High hopes, hopefully, high execution
Fans undoubtedly will have high hopes for this game as they just haven’t got a game recently that has been worth getting excited over. The graphics on the former golf club games were fun, and the gameplay was fun as well. Now with the licensing of the PGA tour, fans can only wait to see what the future holds.
Let me know if you’re excited about the new game in the comments,
Until Next Time,
