There’s a Rocket League modding scene that comes up with race programs and acrobatic challenges for the automotive soccer game, however I’ve but to see a wonderful standalone game that mashes up Rocket League with arcade racing. Turbo Golf Racing from developer Hugecalf Studios is likely to be that game.

Turbo Golf Racing helps eight-player on-line races. It’s additionally a golf game, form of: Each participant is hitting their very own ball towards a gap on the finish of the course, and the primary to sink it wins. As in Rocket League, the vehicles have rocket boosters and may fly for brief durations.

There are additionally weapons and energy ups in Turbo Golf Racing, which Rocket League does not have outdoors of its Rumble mode. I’m undecided how I really feel about that. In Rocket League’s commonplace modes, the complexity comes nearly totally from teamwork and advantageous maneuvering, with few distractions. I like that Psyonix did not overstuff Rocket League with toys: It’s simply rocket vehicles making an attempt to hit a ball right into a objective. Then once more, Rocket League’s Rumble mode has all the time been enjoyable when I’ve performed it, so possibly the ability ups work in Turbo Golf Racing.

The vehicles in Turbo Golf additionally seem to fly extra like gliders than Rocket League’s hunks of rotating steel, so I do not suppose it can really feel like an ideal analogue. I ponder if my 1,300 hours of Rocket League will make it onerous to adapt to completely different rocket automotive physics.

There’s a demo for Turbo Golf Racing out there now, so I’ll strive it out quickly. You can discover that on the Steam web page if you wish to give it a spin. The early entry launch date was additionally introduced in the course of the Future Games Show right now: Turbo Golf Racing will likely be out on August 4.
