Infinite Minigolf is releasing in spring 2017 for PlayStation 4 (with PlayStation VR support), Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, Zen Studios (CastleStorm, Pinball FX2) announced today.
With Infinite Minigolf, you’ll find a variety of single-player modes, local multiplayer matchups, eight-player online multiplayer matchups, unlockable gear, power-ups, incredibly accurate ball physics, and the ability to create and share courses.
“Using the robust toolset contained in the course editor, players are the creators, and can showcase their creative abilities to players all over the world!” Zen Studios said. “Players will place course tiles and a vast assortment of gameplay objects into beautifully crafted environments as they create amazing minigolf courses.”
Tamas Balog, Head of Studio, added that the team listened to the feedback from 2010’s Planet Minigolf when creating Infinite Minigolf:
Zen Studios released Planet Minigolf on PlayStation Network back in 2010 and players are still enjoying that game today. The community has been very vocal over the years, sharing their ideas for a new game, and they gave us more than enough new ideas to come back and develop a minigolf game for this console generation. The team has spent a lot of time developing better tools for players to make their own content – which was the number one request from players. If you enjoy minigolf as well as creating and sharing your own content, Infinite Minigolf was designed for you.
Asked if the VR mode would include first-person view and PlayStation Move support, Zen Studios’s Zsolt Kigyossy said, “We are using a 3rd person camera positioned over/behind the character while aiming. Once you hit the ball, you can follow the ball with your head, or, if it gets too far away, you can use the re-position button, which gives you a new camera position near the ball by teleporting there. Right now we plan for gamepad support, but are looking into Move.”
Expect more on Infinite Minigolf – including price, release date, and further PSVR details – “soon.”
Infinite Minigolf is currently available on PC through Steam Early Access for $14.99 USD.
