Infinite Minigolf Coming to Consoles this Spring

Infinite Minigolf Coming this Spring on PS4, PSVR, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Currently available on Steam Early Access – Vive Support Coming at Launch

Infinite Minigolf has been available on Steam Early Access for a few months, and we know many of you have been waiting for console news, so today we are excited to confirm that Infinite Minigolf is coming PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this spring! The game will get Vive VR support on Steam at launch, day in date with the console launch.

Zen would like to send a big THANK YOU, to everyone who played Planet Minigolf. An even BIGGER thank you goes out to all the players who took time to send us feedback and ideas over the years, and more recently on Steam Early Access, which has helped to make an ever better Minigolf game.

Infinite Minigolf is a game designed to never end. How can a game never end? Well, for starters, we are giving you easy to use tools that allow you to create and share unlimited courses.

We heard your feedback regarding the original course editor and have made significant upgrades. The toolset in Infinite Minigolf is easier to use, intuitive and you have a LOT more options. Stylized tiles, beautifully crafted objects that affect gameplay and allow you to play tricks on players are all included here. Also – a way to find the best courses! Planet Minigolf players probably remember the massive shared library, over 80,000 (!!!!) holes. The challenge was finding the best or newest or wackiest or…yeah, we get it. The hole browser feature will help you find what you are looking for, no problem!

Next, take all these user created courses and apply a fun multiplayer and tournament system so you can all play together. Multiplayer is a huge focus in Infinite Minigolf, and we are supporting 8-player matchups, as well as tons of tournaments and competition.

There are a bunch of other great new features, unlockables, power-ups and Minigolf stuff to talk about, and we have not even gone in depth about VR, but sadly our time here is short. You will be able to find out more about these as we lead up to launch by keeping an eye on our blog and social feeds.

At the end of the day, Zen has set out to provide you with unlimited fun with the craftmanship and quality that you have all come to expect from our games. We hope you are excited for Infinite Minigolf, and will be able to share our release date and pricing info soon.

Rebellions are built on hope – and the only hope the galaxy has lies at the feet of a rogue band of rebel fighters that is prepared for a daring mission. Welcome to Rogue One!

The Star Wars Pinball: Rogue One table will be available on PS3, PS4, PSVita, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Windows 10, Steam and Mac on January 31st, and on iOS, Google Play and Amazon on February 2nd.
