Sony continues to clean up its multiplayer titles whose success does not seem to be there. The next victim will be Everybody’s Golf.
Bad news for golf lovers. While the latter will already have to wait another year for EA Sports PGA Tour, now Sony announces the closure of servers on Everybody’s Golf. The PS4 game released in 2017 will therefore lose all its online features from September 30, 2022. So there are only six months left to enjoy multiplayer modes.
Six months of respite
According to the message that appears on the official PlayStation website, while online features will be unavailable on this date, the single-player game should still be playable. It’s a shame since several modes of Everybody’s Golf require a connection. we think of Open courses, international tournaments, but also rankings or Warp Medals. In short, it’s a whole part of the game that will now be inaccessible.
If you’re ever a trophy hunter, know that shutting down Everybody’s Golf servers means two of them will be unobtainable. Clearly, past September 30, it will be impossible to have Platinum. The first obstacle will be the Online Debut trophy (First steps online in VF – the first time we play on an Open course online). The second will be the Walking Encyclopedia which is obtained by fishing each species of fish at least once.
Everybody’s Golf: the blow of the breakdown?
While the Everybody’s Golf license was present on PS2 and PS3, it did not have the same success with its PS4 version. We haven’t really heard of the series since the release of the VR episode in 2019 (which disappointed us for lack of content). The PS5 does not seem to be part of Sony’s plans, and the Clap Hanz studio is now developing mobile games (Clap Hanz Golf for amateurs).
