HB Studios has stuck its fingers into many sporting pies over the years, often pitching in with EA series including Madden NFL and FIFA, but is now preparing to tee off with another sport 'em up of its own. The developer today announced The Golf Club for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Intriguingly, it'll procedurally generate its courses, to always offer something new.
Players aren't entirely subject to the whims of some diabolical golf engine, though, as they'll be able to customize courses it spits out. Courses can be shared online, and rolled into tours and tournaments so all your chums can play the same set. HB says procedural generation massively cuts down loading and waiting times too.
The Golf Club is slated to launch this spring. A little insider knowledge, to explain the name: a "golf club" is the name of both the stick golflings use to kick the ball and the wattle and daub hut they retire to afterwards to drink so very much gin.
