100ft Robot Golf Featured Saints Row Character for PAX West
Play golf as a giant purple robot.
Over the last weekend PAX West held its annual event in Seattle, Washington, US. The videogame event featured a raft of virtual reality (VR) content including the newly released Damaged Core from High Voltage Software, the Tomb Raider VR Experience by Square Enix, and Reload Studio’s World War Toons. There was also 100ft Robot Golf on Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) PlayStation 4 booth with one special addition, Saint’s Row character Pierce Washington as one of the pilots.
Confirmed on 100ft Robot Golf’s Twitter, the inclusion of Washington meant that visitors to PAX West could jump in a giant robot with a Saints Row purple skin to take on would be challengers to a round of golf. Developer No Goblin had the videogame running as a four player split screen for some multiplayer action. It’s unclear if the inclusion of the new character will be permanent, come with future DLC or was just for the event itself.
VRFocus has reported on 100ft Robot Golf numerous times before as it’s compatible with the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD). The title was on display at June’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California, and we got time to preview 100ft Robot Golf.
The name tells you exactly what you’re getting with the experience, control massive 100ft robots while playing golf. Although there is more to it than achieving par, as the course takes in cities, mountains, lakes and more to traverse. While the robots can jump and fly, to get the best shot through areas such as the city you’re going to have to level some buildings. To add to this when playing multiplayer you’ll have to contend with other opponents, not just beating your score but also trying to attack you directly.
100ft Robot Golf launches for PlayStation 4 on 10th October, three days before the arrival of PlayStation VR. For all the latest updates on 100ft Robot Golf and PlayStation VR, keep reading VRFocus.
