We’re actually blissful to lastly be capable to showcase RPGolf Legends, releasing Jan 20, 2022 for PS5 and PS4 with cross-buy assist!
I’m Riccardo Castelnuovo, the founding father of ArticNet which is the crew behind RPGolf Legends. The core crew could be very (very) small… simply me and one other developer (hello, Guillaume!). In whole we’ve been engaged on RPGolf Legends for a bit over two years.
The concept that introduced RPGolf Legends to life comes from the 8-bit golf video games I performed once I was a child. I liked them however each shot I took I couldn’t assist however eager to discover these stunning fields the place the character was enjoying golf (again within the day, these pixels regarded so stunning). So that’s the place the concept of the open-world golf recreation originated. What’s the very best factor to do whereas exploring a golf course, in addition to enjoying golf? Preventing monsters, after all! And that’s how the entire thing got here to life.
Whereas designing RPGolf Legends there have been many challenges we confronted, however the hardest was undoubtedly attempting to attain an excellent stability between the golf, preventing, exploration, and RPG components. Ensuring that the sport felt pure was actually onerous when two genres like golf and RPG are combined collectively. It was additionally particularly onerous as a result of we thought that specializing in one facet or the opposite ought to be fully as much as the participant so that everybody can benefit from the recreation as they see match, paying extra consideration to the facet they like the very best.
There are various issues gamers can do, however I personally just like the crafting essentially the most. When you get a blueprint for a brand new merchandise/golf set/dish/and so on, there may be nothing extra gratifying than looking for all of the supplies and at last crafting the merchandise. I believe gamers will really feel like they earned the merchandise after a protracted quest.
Relating to preventing, particular boss battles happen on the final gap of each space. The principle character, Aerin, has to finish the opening with a view to defeat every boss. To take action, she first has to combat the boss, stun it, and take a shot earlier than it will get again on his ft.
The largest recommendation I can provide is to attempt to keep near the ball, as a result of if you lastly stun the boss, there won’t be a lot time to take a shot! Being near the ball will make every little thing lots simpler.
Every monster and boss is straight impressed by the realm the character is exploring. For instance within the first space (the forest), Aerin will face a large evil tree blocking her path. The tree can carry out assaults near his character (leaf storms, root assaults and so forth…) and to defeat him, listening to the patterns is significant!
I do know we may have gamers who’ve performed the primary RPGolf, in addition to new gamers who’re first approaching the saga. For the previous: we listened to your suggestions. We obtained a variety of nice concepts and evaluations from players everywhere in the world and we tried our greatest to enhance, refine and add to the sport idea.
We additionally guarantee new gamers that you simply don’t have to play the primary recreation with a view to get pleasure from this, as the 2 tales are utterly separate.
We launched a variety of new ideas: a brand new, bigger world map, a brand new preventing system that feels far more pure than earlier than, an improved golf, courses, quests, crafting, tournaments, and much more.
We hope that our followers will admire all of the onerous work we put into enhancing the sport and new gamers will get pleasure from this distinctive action-rpg-golfing expertise.
We’re actually excited for everybody to begin enjoying RPGolf Legends from subsequent Thursday.
