The Golf Club taking a swing at Steam Early Access

HB Studios’ golf simulation title, The Golf Club, will be available via Steam Early Access following the game’s closed beta test, the developer has announced.

“We wanted to ensure that we delivered the best experience for PC gamers and Steam allows us to do that. We’ll be announcing information very soon about the closed beta which will take place on Steam,” the developer wrote on its blog. “After that closed testing period we are planning to open up the game as an Early Access on Steam. This will allow everyone who wants to start playing early to get access to the game before it’s finished!”

The game will feature a full course creator with procedurally generated courses that players can play around with or there is an option to create a course from scratch. Players also have the ability to create their own tournaments and tours.

“The philosophy behind the game is to provide an accessible, high quality, social and customizable golf experience with minimal to zero loading times,” the developer explained when the game was first announced. “The latter is a bane of console/PC sports games in general and, in particular, golf games. Sitting watching a loading bar for minutes as you wait for a game to load and half a minute between holes can be miserable. Rapid access is behind every design decision made on this game.”

The Golf Club is also set to release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
