Manchester, UK – 21 July 2022. The countdown has started: Hugecalf Studios’ arcade-style racing game Turbo Golf Racing is ready to tee-off for Xbox Game Preview and Steam Early Access on 4 August 2022, with an RRP of £14.99 | €17.99 | $17.99. It will also be available Day One on Game Pass, and Game Pass subscribers can now pre-install Turbo Golf Racing on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.

Ahead of launch, Hugecalf Studios has announced the full line-up of Power Cores to reveal how players can pick and choose a combination of skills that suit their individual playstyle.

Power Cores are Turbo Golf Racing’s secret weapon: each one activates either Passive or Active abilities to help you perform above par… and score below par. Passive Cores grant ‘always on’ bonuses, while Active Cores are triggered with a button press, and players can sandwedge up to two Power Cores inside their car chassis: either selecting one Active and one Passive ability, or two Passive skills.

11 Power Cores are available at launch, unlocked by completing certain Solo or online challenges. These 11 Power Cores are:  
Active Cores  


Magnet
Magnetises the ball towards your car  


Quick Flip
Performs a quick flip or roll to gain speed  


Shock
Creates a short-range shockwave which pushes your ball away from your car  


Passive Cores  


Big Ball
Increases the size of your ball  


Curve Ball
Adds more spin to your ball, making it travel with more of a curve  


Small Ball
Decreases the size of your ball  


Spring Ball
Increases the bounciness of your ball  


Straight and Steady
Removes spin from your ball, making it travel straighter  


Double Dash
Allows the car to dash twice whilst airborne  


Hot Head
Increases boost power, but depletes your boost bar faster  


Sand Master
Car will not be slowed by bunkers  

Experimenting with the interplay of different Power Cores is an important tactic to secure the advantage. The right combination of Power Cores enables racers to enhance their strengths or mitigate their weaknesses in the sprint towards the finish flag.

More Power Cores will be added to Turbo Golf Racing in the future as free content updates, alongside new Seasons, cosmetic items and even full courses.

About Turbo Golf Racing
Turbo Golf Racing is a fast-paced arcade-style sports racing game for up to eight players, all competing to see whose speed-putting skills are up to par. Racers flip, glide, and dash their turbo-charged cars down winding fairways as they strike their oversized golf balls toward the finishing cup.  

RACE YOUR RIVALS TO THE FINISH
Welcome to the future of motorsports. Feel the excitement of fast-paced arcade-style racing as you tee off with your friends in an exhilarating new way. Jump, flip, glide, boost, and dash with turbo-charged cars and be the first to get your ball in the hole.

EIGHT PLAYERS ONLINE
Race with up to seven other competitors in a Grand Prix-style competition. Hit the boost pads to charge past your rivals, take secret tunnels to outwit them, and fire missiles to stop them in their tracks.  

POWER CORES
Get the edge over your rivals by unlocking and equipping Power Cores. Hit your ball further, fly faster, and use unique abilities such as Magnet and Quick Flip. With a wide variety of Power Cores, fine-tune your setup to outwit your friends.

TURBO-CHARGE YOUR CUSTOMISATION
Choose the car and ball that makes you stand out from the crowd. Enjoy endless paint options, and change your wheels, spoiler, shield, car body and boosters.  

TAKE TO THE SKIES
The sky’s the limit when your cars have wings. Launch your turbo-powered car into the air and fly past the competition. Zip through tunnels, glide over fans and chase your ball over obstacles.

TACKLE THE TERRAIN
Use the terrain to your advantage. Launch over the boost pads, and down the fairway. Avoid the rough and the sand traps. Bend your shots around trees and through canyons. Race to the green.  

EVER-GROWING CONTENT
Unlock items as you level-up and enjoy an ever-growing game with regular free updates that will bring new courses, new Power Cores and new cosmetics.
 
Turbo Golf Racing supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Portuguese – Brazil interface localisations.  

Turbo Golf Racing will launch on 4 August 2022 on Steam Early Access and into Xbox Game Preview on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Microsoft Store with an RRP of £14.99 | €17.99 | $17.99.

It is our current expectation that Turbo Golf Racing’s Early Access period will last approximately 12 months.
