The Golf Club 2 announced! - release being aimed for 1Q 2017

Here is the annoucment: http://thegolfclubgame.com/2016/06/1...ent-dev-diary/

And the first preview:



I love TGC and can't wait for the new one. This will be a day one must buy for me!

This was posted by one of the dev in their forums:
Quote:
"... the author will be able to republish their old course into TGC2 with the push of the publish button if they want. If you want to make some changes or upgrades you can do that as well using all of the new tools. "
That's great news because it means some of the great courses in the current game can move to the new game pretty quickly.

I'm definitely going to be in the market for a golf game in 2017. Now I'm going to have to decide which though.


Even though nothing has been announced yet, it seemed fairly obvious from the beginning that EA was going to be on the "every other year" plan with Rory McIlroy PGA Tour just like they are with their UFC franchise. That means a new one should be out mid 2017. I passed on the first one as it was bare bones and looked awful with it's lack of features, but I'm hoping they learned their lesson and will deliver everything that has been added through patches into the new game at launch. Time will tell as that is EA we are talking about.


Any way, the Golf Club does look spectacular and I may be willing to give it a shot, but I just know I will miss the real licensed golfers and courses that the other game has. If this is truly coming out in Q1, then at least it will be out for a few months before the other is and I can weigh the options then.

I'm a little sad we have to buy a new one.

Don't wait Tom, GC is excellent. It's no "video game", don't expect shot assistance and all the other unreal junk EA has in their games (I have Tiger on the PS3 and Rory on the PS4), it is more like real golf.

I'd like to see GC2 be more multi-player friendly when everyone is in the same room. Store players, let them log in with their PS account, etc.

TGC 2 launches on June 27th (PS4, XBOX, PC) for $39.99.


I finally picked up TCG over the weekend in order to 'prep' for the sequel and boy did I miss out not picking up this gem sooner - it's fantastic and truly a SIM.

Boredom's not a burden anyone should bear.

Finally! With the news that EA Sports dropped out of the golf game business after completely destroying the brand with Rory McIlroy, this was the only real alternative. Glad to see it finally has a release date.

I didn't know EA has scrapped their gold game, haven't paid much attention since getting TGC back in 2014. Honestly, I think TGC stole a good portion of EA's audience. EA's game may look better but, the gameplay was much better IMO in TGC and the course creator was a game changer. TGC may not have officially licensed course but, I have been incredibly impressed with some of the recreations the community have built. TGC is the only golf game I need, except I'll probably get the new entry in the Hot Shot series as well. I doubt I would have ever purchased EA's golf game again as long as TGC is around.

I can't comment on the first TGC, but in looking at the videos leading up to TGC 2 I'd say the graphics are on par (no pun intended) with EA's game.

Holy crap I never played TGC before. And never liked any EA golf games, maybe except way back in 2008 TW was ok.

But basically no good golf games for PC or PS4 for like forever.

Can't wait to tee it up online next month. Will get this on release day!

Picked up a copy of golf club the other day as a game for myself, other than the grandkids.
Absolutely love the game, played it with my father for about 5 hours yesterday and we couldn't put it down.
Only one problem, I got the two player and two controllers working on the first round of 18 holes but after that two players worked but the second controller wouldn't. Shut the whole thing down and restarted several times but couldn't get the second controller up and running. Finally gave up and we spent the next several hours passing the control back and forth. Anybody have any clues about what's wrong?
Also wondering if the new version will be 4K compatable, any benefits for the PS4 PRO?

Have a question for those who have played the first game.


Like I've said before, I will kinda miss the real licensed courses that EA's game provided, but I know that the community has done a good job in somewhat recreating the real thing. That said, what I really loved in EA's games were the fantasy courses. The ones that were so ridiculous it offered a big challenge (i.e. The Predator, Grand Canyon, etc.)


While TGC's courses are technically fantasy courses, don't they still basically look like a real golf course? Are there options to create courses in this game that say are set in a desert, deep forest, canyon, glaciers, etc?
