Golf With Your Friends, a truly entertaining mini-golf indie, has released a new teaser for their upcoming Sports Update that is due to roll out on September 15th. Fans can expect improvements to Hockey and Dunk, as well as a new sports-themed cosmetic pack for purchase.
It’ll be available on Steam, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. You can have a look at some of the gameplay here, although it’s unusually brief:
Golf With Your Friends was developed by Team17, indie devs and publishers who have consistently supported and produced a series of very clever and enjoyable games, such as Overcooked and Worms. They also recently announced Ship of Fools, a co-op roguelite about adventures and monsters in the sea.
Golf With Your Friends has struck a remarkable controlled chaos for multiplayer, where the mechanics and courses are just ridiculous enough to create silly fun without becoming too frustrating. Overall, it’s a decent game, and it really helps that the game is available on Game Pass for Xbox subscribers. It can also feel more breezy than other mini-golf games.
Unfortunately, the new update is a little underwhelming because it remains too vague, even on the official blog post. The first improvement to the Hockey and Dunk modes mentions “enhancements”, which could mean just about anything.
They do add that players will be able to use Powerup options for those game modes, and that Hockey’s Goal and floor tiles will be fixed.
The cosmetic pack will include 5 Hats, 2 Floaties, 2 Stickers, and 1 Trail, and although it isn’t very exciting, it isn’t very expensive either. It just feels like this event is more of a cash grab. While the update is free, the cosmetics that tie the update together are not. Also, the fall season is a missed opportunity to add more football material.
