The Golf Club VR News Post


HB Studios has just announced The Golf Club VR for the HTC Vive, scheduled to arrive later this year.

Quote:
The Golf Club VR is based on the original award-winning game, and will allow users to play all 130,000+ courses currently available to players of the console and PC versions. The game will include a number of new features designed specifically for the virtual reality experience, including a smartwatch to analyse each shot, room scale VR capabilities for a customised game space, and a single controller used for interacting with the environment and swinging clubs. Highly refined controls and multiple difficulty levels create an accessible experience for all players.

“Playing The Golf Club on the HTC Vive takes the experience to a whole new level,” said Craig Chapman, Designer of The Golf Club VR. “Not only is it a much more tactile and immersive experience, now the player is also able to freely explore all the fantastic courses and environments which users have created since the original launch of the game.”

Really intrigued by this.

Will this be a first person experience or third person, like it is in the non vr version of the game?

As an Oculus Rift owner, any chance of this coming to the Rift down the road after the Touch controllers are released?

Thanks and good luck going forward with development of the new version of the game!

It's first person, with you needing to use motion controls.
Looking at other devices all the time, HTC worked best for us in the short term. I'm sure we'll be porting to others in the future though

VERY cool - Super excited for this.

Any commentary or more details about how the swing will work?

For those that were not happy with the somewhat "too easy" swing in TGC v1 (after playing for a while), will this be a whole new enchilada given that it's a completely different way to interact with the game?

Thank you!

This is intriguing. But I could see me breaking all my wife's valuable items in the living room trying to play this.

It's a motion swing. Much like Tiger Woods wii game. But the HTC controller has a lot more fidelity about it. Plays really nice.

Don't worry about breaking stuff. HTC has room sense, so you know where the valuables are inside the world

That's nice addition with room sense. That's one of my biggest concerns with the expected growth in VR gaming.

Super cool!

Any commentary on the view in the distance or other graphical things of note?

Has the TGC VR team had to tweak the graphics to work better in VR?

My Oculus time made me a bit weary of things that are too detailed as the view of things far off was really sort of muddy and kind of gross looking and I really hope TGC VR looks good!
