Turbo Golf Racing out now for PC and Xbox
Developer Hugecalf Studios describes Turbo Golf Racing as a “fast-paced, arcade-style sports-racing game” where players drive, jump, and flip rocket-powered cars to hit a giant ball.
It sounds a lot like Rocket League with golf, but Turbo Golf Racing is more than that. There’s an actual race element, with up to eight players trying to get their own ball into the final hole first.
Unlike Rocket League, there’s also no contact with other players. Instead, gameplay-altering Power Cores can be equipped to get an advantage, giving special abilities such as increasing the size of the ball or magnetising the ball towards your car.
“It’s hard to comprehend that three-and-a-half years have passed since we first started prototyping our car-golf game,” said Jonny Hughes, director and producer at Hugecalf Studios.
“We’re immensely proud of how far Turbo Golf Racing has come since then and we will be forever grateful to the tens of thousands of players who helped us refine the game during this year’s Beta tests. I’m excited for players to experience everything that’s in Turbo Golf Racing today, and to discover what’s to still to come in the months ahead.”
Early access for 12 months
Hugecalf Studios anticipates Turbo Golf Racing will remain in Early Access and Xbox Game Preview for around a year. New cars, tracks, and Power Cores as well as balancing updates will be added in that time along with improvements based on player feedback, with the first free update due this month.
“Player feedback is central to everything in Turbo Golf Racing today and in its future,” said Krystal Ramsey, product manager at Secret Mode.
“The ridiculously talented team at Hugecalf Studios has already made an incredible game that’s exhilarating from minute one, but this really is the beginning of the ride. Without spoiling the surprises in store, we’re incredibly excited to see how the Turbo Golf Racing experience evolves throughout the Early Access and Game Preview programs in tandem with the community’s ideas.”
