Secret Mode | Manchester, UK – 6 October 2023: Time to switch your stopwatch for a scorecard – developer Hugecalf Studios and publisher Secret Mode have traded turbochargers for tartan and practiced their polite applause for a more traditional eighteen holes in Turbo Golf Racing.
Golf mode - out now - brings a little serenity and even more skill to the rocket-fuelled extreme sports game, with fast-paced, eight-player races swapped out for a (slightly) more true-to-life, one-on-one, best-of-three showdown. Turbo golfers will need to accurately steer their ball to the end of the course in the fewest shots, with pars, birdies, eagles, and albatrosses to score for the most skilled golfers. Players can also make use of the game mode-exclusive aerial camera to plan their swings, and a new combined power dash mechanic to send the ball flying even further than before.
New Golfing and Progression adventures have also been added to encourage you to take a stroke or two off your golf game, alongside a wealth of other updates and improvements. And fret not, race fans – while Golf mode will be the default way to play for a limited time, classic Turbo Golf Racing and time trials will still be available to play.
The highlights from the latest update are:
Introducing Golf mode, a new way to experience TGR! Step into the ultimate 1v1 showdown, where precision triumphs over speed, and victory is achieved by fewest shots. Become aware of your surroundings with the exclusive aerial camera and hit your ball further than before with our combined power dash mechanic. Put your golfing skills to the test in casual or custom games
A new golf tutorial has been added to learn how to play
