Zen Studios has today announced that Infinite Minigolf, the highly anticipated follow-up to Planet Minigolf, is coming to consoles and virtual reality (VR). The PC version of the videogame and the upcoming PlayStation 4 version will feature VR gameplay, allowing you to create, customise, and play your courses in a brand new way.
Having previous released editions of popular console titles CastleStorm and Pinball FX 2 for VR head-mounted displays (HMDs), it should come as no surprise that Zen Studios’ latest title will also support VR. Currently available on PCs through Steam Early Access, Infinite Minigolf will allow players craft their own course creations and experience tons of customisation options on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this spring.
“Zen Studios released Planet Minigolf on PlayStation Network back in 2010 and players are still enjoying that game today. The community has been very vocal over the years, sharing their ideas for a new game, and they gave us more than enough new ideas to come back and develop a minigolf game for this console generation,” said Tamas Balog, Head of Studio at Zen Studios. “The team has spent a lot of time developing better tools for players to make their own content – which was the number one request from players. If you enjoy minigolf as well as creating and sharing your own content, Infinite Minigolf was designed for you.”
Using the robust toolset contained in the course editor, players are the creators, and can showcase their creative abilities to players all over the world. Players will place course tiles and a vast assortment of gameplay objects as they wish, as well as participating in eight-player online multiplayer matchups, local multiplayer matches, and a variety of single player modes.
The PlayStation 4 and Steam versions support PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive respectively. No specific release date has yet been announced for Infinite Minigolf, but of course VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details.
