We are really happy to finally be able to show off RPGolf Legends, releasing Jan 20, 2022 for PS5 and PS4 with cross-buy support!
I’m Riccardo Castelnuovo, the founder of ArticNet which is the team behind RPGolf Legends. The core team is very (very) small… just me and another developer (hi, Guillaume!). In total we have been working on RPGolf Legends for a little over two years.
The idea that brought RPGolf Legends to life comes from the 8-bit golf games I played when I was a kid. I loved them but every shot I took I could not help but wanting to explore those beautiful fields where the character was playing golf (back in the day, those pixels looked so beautiful). So that is where the idea of the open-world golf game originated. What’s the best thing to do while exploring a golf course, besides playing golf? Fighting monsters, of course! And that is how the whole thing came to life.
While designing RPGolf Legends there were many challenges we faced, but the hardest was definitely trying to achieve a good balance between the golf, fighting, exploration, and RPG elements. Making sure that the game felt natural was really hard when two genres like golf and RPG are mixed together. It was also especially hard because we thought that focusing on one aspect or the other should be entirely up to the player so that everyone can enjoy the game as they see fit, paying more attention to the aspect they like the best.
There are many things players can do, but I personally like the crafting the most. Once you get a blueprint for a new item/golf set/dish/etc, there is nothing more gratifying than searching for all the materials and finally crafting the item. I think players will feel like they earned the item after a long quest.
When it comes to fighting, special boss battles take place at the last hole of every area. The main character, Aerin, has to complete the hole in order to defeat each boss. To do so, she first has to fight the boss, stun it, and take a shot before it gets back on his feet.
The biggest advice I can give is to try to stay close to the ball, because when you finally stun the boss, there will not be much time to take a shot! Being close to the ball will make everything a lot easier.
Each monster and boss is directly inspired by the area the character is exploring. For example in the first area (the forest), Aerin will face a giant evil tree blocking her path. The tree can perform attacks close to his character (leaf storms, root attacks and so on…) and to defeat him, paying attention to the patterns is vital!
This epic collaboration will officially become available on January 20, following a midseason update for Vanguard and Warzone Pacific that will include a new Operator, a new weapon, additional content for Zombies, various bug fixes, and more.
The Vanguard update will be downloadable on January 11 at 9 PM PT, while the Warzone Pacific update can be downloaded starting January 12 at 9 PM PT.
These will prepare both games for the first full day of Season One’s midseason update on January 13 at 9 AM PT.
The Tracer Pack: Attack on Titan — Levi Edition Bundle
In celebration of Attack on Titan’s final season, Vanguard and Warzone Pacific players can become a Survey Corps member through the Tracer Pack: Attack on Titan — Levi Edition Bundle. (Available via the in-game store for 2,400CP, equivalent to $19.99 USD / £16.79)
This 10-item Store Bundle is not just for superfans of the franchise; it has the style and firepower to become a leader among soldiers, just like Levi Ackerman.
One of the most notable additions to this Bundle is the “Titan Piercer,” a Weapon Blueprint that models the very blade that can slay Titans. Made of ultrahard steel, the only material that can cut through Titan flesh, this one-edge blade is more than capable of slicing through squads with ease.
Also available in the Bundle is the Legendary “Steel Cut” Finishing Move, as well as the Vanguard-exclusive “Vertical Maneuver” Highlight Intro and the “Ultrahard Steel” MVP Highlight.
The other two weapons in this Bundle are the Legendary “Historia” SMG and “Ymir Curse” Assault Rifle Weapon Blueprints, two firearms that are great additions to your Warzone Pacific or Vanguard Multiplayer and Zombies Loadouts.
“Ymir Curse” is built for Operators who pride themselves on accurate shots downrange. With a nine-attachment configuration, near-zero horizontal recoil, and almost-maximum effectiv
