Sony recently revealed the latest of their golfing game series with New Hot Shots Golf for PlayStation 4. The latest details show that the game has a lot more to offer than golf. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]
The game is set on the high-tech island of “Mingol Island,” which is a play-on-word of Minna no Golf (Everybody’s Golf in Japanese) which also happens to sound like “mingle island.”
In New Hot Shots Golf, you’ll get to freely walk around the golf courses as you play, which opens some strategic elements for being able to aim for the green from various angles. There are various rules to pick from to make custom games.
You’ll get to make your own character and grow their skills. For example, adding more power will let them hit their drives farther, and so on.
New Hot Shots Golf will introduce various event missions for online play, including some that are exclusive to online mode. In addition to competitive modes, there will also be co-op features where you’ll get to work with other players.
Other activities include fishing, cart-riding, skydiving, and more.
Here’s a look at a couple courses.
