Check out our quick guide to the game's mechanics ahead of tee-off this week
The team here at Japan Studio is thrilled to announce that from today, PS VR owners can grab a free playable demo of Everybody’s Golf VR from PlayStation Store!
The demo lets you play in the full game’s practice area, as well as enjoying the scenery from the Forest Course’s teeing ground.
To help you get into the swing of things in the demo, we’d like to talk a little about the game’s all-new shot system. In Everybody’s Golf VR, the shot system is as simple as swinging the controller like a golf club. Though it’s simple enough for anyone to enjoy, it also has a lot of depth…
How to perfect your golf swing
Let’s start with a little practice in Practice Swing mode. If the afterimage of the club head is red, your swing wouldn’t have hit the ball.
If the afterimage of the club head is blue, you know your swing would have hit the ball.
Once you’ve gotten a feel for the swing in Practice Swing mode, switch to Address mode and take the shot for real! Switching to Address mode is as simple as pressing the Move button.
The speed at which you swing the golf club determines how far the ball will go, and the direction the club head is facing on impact changes the ball’s trajectory.
Swing data is computed using D-Plane theory, resulting in realistic trajectories similar to actual golf. As you improve, you’ll learn to control how much the ball curves left or right, the direction and angle at which you launch the ball, as well as its spin.
Once you’re comfortable with the controls, try making some amazing shots, the kind only a pro golfer could make!
We do hope you enjoy the game’s practice area in the demo and are looking forward to the game’s full release on 22nd May. Don’t forget, if you pre-order before then, you’ll get a load of digital extras at launch – including the charismatic Caddie Steve to help you perfect your game!
