CLIMB THE SOCIAL LADDER IN THE GOLF CLUB 2 WITH NEW CAREER MODE AND MULTIPLAYER SOCIETIES

Maximum Games and HB Studios Highlight Brand-New Solo and Multiplayer Features in New Trailer for Highly Anticipated Sequel

June 6, 2017 – Walnut Creek, CA – Video game publisher Maximum Games, in partnership with developer HB Studios, has today released a brand-new E3 Preview Trailer for their highly-anticipated sports game, The Golf Club 2 . The next installment following the series’ highly successful first entry, The Golf Club, will swing onto shelves for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and Windows PC on June 27, 2017.

Today’s trailer for The Golf Club 2 spotlights two features being introduced as a direct result of fan feedback The Golf Club – a single player Career Mode as well as online Societies. Continuing their drive for a more realistic and authentic golf experience, players will now be able to climb the ranks to the upper echelons of elite golf clubs in Career Mode. Players begin their journey at small, local links and must hone their skills in these small competitions to earn their way into finer, more prestigious clubs and challenging tournaments.

Societies will form the backbone of both Career Mode and general competition in The Golf Club 2 . Players can create and run their own multiplayer societies with their friends, or join existing Societies that fit their skill level and playstyle. Once created, the owner of a Society can customize their clubhouse, Society logo, and more in order to create and display their own unique identities online. While players may join up to five different Societies at once, they may only have one ‘primary’ Society that they will represent and compete for at a time. Individual players can represent their Society by hosting online tournaments, where Societies will buy in to compete for prize pools. Winning these tournaments rewards players with in-game currency that can be used to improve clubhouses and host larger, more challenging tournaments to see which Society has the skills to rise to the top.

Expanding upon the popular Course Editor feature from The Golf Club, over 150,000 user-generated courses from the inaugural title can all be imported by their original creators into The Golf Club 2 . These courses can then be played immediately online, or creators can use the enhanced features and tools of the improved Course Editor to create more authentic tournament experiences by including additional details to courses, dynamic crowds of spectators and more.

Right now, players can get a head start on their career and pre-order The Golf Club 2 for $39.99. They will receive the “Day One” edition, which includes the following “Aristocrat” bonus in-game content:
