Each Summer season about this time, I write up a put up that feels the identical, because it offers with a recreation that launches yearly in September – the newest iteration of Unimaginable Applied sciences’ Golden Tee. The annual launch has stored this because the longest refreshed collection discovered within the arcade enterprise (not the oldest, however definitely probably the most revisited). It additionally stays the most well-liked golf online game on the planet, with over 10,000 models put in into bars and different amusement venues on the market, and constantly robust gross sales on the house aspect. On the latter level, Golden Tee is commonly the most effective promoting arcade video games into properties, proper subsequent to the likes of whichever Pac-Man multigame that Namco is at present promoting into that market.
So, what’s occurring with Golden Tee 2020, you may ask? A lot, as this contemporary new trailer factors out. I’ll let it do the speaking for a few moments, then go from there:
Summing it up for you right here:
5 new programs (Jamaica Bay; Oakwood Hills; Lake Powell; Grand Teton; Dodge Metropolis)
2 re-imagined basic programs (Coral Ridge & Citadel Shire)
Actual Time Rivals are on-line now; defeat them to unlock in-game rewards
Revamped occasions mode
“Freaky programs” are actually out there in Informal Mode
Extra wacky golf equipment, outfits and golf balls
IT has additionally been very lively in selling the sport for the previous whereas on their social media accounts, the place you will get information of occasions and updates there.
The core gameplay hasn’t modified by any indication that I’ve seen, which is nice, though I actually assume that it’s well beyond time for them to roll out some new graphics. I get that their core viewers doesn’t actually care (and so they did roll out a hardware replace a couple of years in the past that bumped the sport decision as much as 1080p at the least), in order that most likely makes this level moot, however the recreation is simply wanting historical by right this moment’s graphics requirements.
Granted, Golden Tee by no means was on the slicing fringe of graphics in arcades. However I don’t assume that anybody would complain if GT appeared nicer. Write a raytracing shader and provide the most affordable nVidia RTX card available on the market (nonetheless going to price greater than the gfx card that these include, so that will improve the bottom price of the video games by a pair/few hundred )…or at the least a brand new HDR engine. Something can be an enchancment at this level, though within the case of GT, I think about that the RTX On/Off factor can be reasonably noticeable in it’s case. 😉
Anyhow, Golden Tee 2020 is about to launch to bars & arcades on September 24th, with the Dwelling Version all the time coming a month or two later. There aren’t any photographs of the cupboard for this but, however I might assume that will probably be the identical as we’ve seen since IT launched the “Showcase” cupboard again in 2007. Kits shall be out there, in order that house owners of current GT models can replace the software program, swap out the artwork and so they’ll be good to go.
What do you consider the following model of Golden Tee, from what has been proven thus far?
