We’re actually pleased to lastly have the ability 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 staff behind RPGolf Legends. The core staff may be very (very) small… simply me and one other developer (hello, Guillaume!). In whole now we have been engaged on RPGolf Legends for somewhat over two years.
The concept introduced RPGolf Legends to life comes from the 8-bit golf video games I performed after I was a child. I cherished them however each shot I took I couldn’t assist however eager to discover these lovely fields the place the character was enjoying golf (again within the day, these pixels seemed so lovely). 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, apart from 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 making an attempt to realize a great steadiness between the golf, preventing, exploration, and RPG components. Ensuring that the sport felt pure was actually laborious when two genres like golf and RPG are combined collectively. It was additionally particularly laborious as a result of we thought that specializing in one side or the opposite ought to be solely as much as the participant so that everybody can benefit from the recreation as they see match, paying extra consideration to the side they like the very best.
There are lots of 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 many others, there’s nothing extra gratifying than trying to find all of the supplies and eventually crafting the merchandise. I believe gamers will really feel like they earned the merchandise after a protracted quest.
On the subject of preventing, particular boss battles happen on the final gap of each space. The primary character, Aerin, has to finish the opening in an effort to defeat every boss. To take action, she first has to battle the boss, stun it, and take a shot earlier than it will get again on his toes.
The largest recommendation I may give is to attempt to keep near the ball, as a result of while you lastly stun the boss, there won’t be a lot time to take a shot! Being near the ball will make the whole lot rather a lot simpler.
Every monster and boss is instantly impressed by the realm the character is exploring. For instance within the first space (the forest), Aerin will face an enormous 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, taking note of the patterns is important!
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 acquired numerous nice concepts and critiques from players all around 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 must play the primary recreation in an effort to get pleasure from this, as the 2 tales are utterly separate.
We launched numerous new ideas: a brand new, bigger world map, a brand new preventing system that feels far more pure than earlier than, an improved golf, lessons, quests, crafting, tournaments, and much more.
We hope that our followers will recognize all of the laborious 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.
