I love Powerstar Golf so I'm really happy that they're updating it. For those who may be interested in the game it's also on sale for $15 this week.

I got it this week along with my new Xbox One. Great little game. I wish they'd bump the resolution. That's the one glaring flaw the game has.

Sweet. I'll play again after the update. I thought the controls were great. But the credit grinding was slooooow.

How is the leveling system on this? It looks ALOT like Hot Shots Golf which is why I'm kinda interested in this.

Could make the wait for Next Gen Hot Shots much easier.

I'm a big Hot Shots fan. It's pretty much identical except for the store. In Hot Shots you choose what you want to buy. In this game you have the choice to spend currency on different packs, each pack costing more or less depending upon the level of gear that might be inside. It's all a crapshoot pretty much. There's only 4 courses, but for 15 bucks they're really great and I expect more via DLC in the future.

Thanks for the heads up, I barely started with this game, I'm level 7 at the 4th course. I hope it's not a 13gb patch.

They updated it early. That credits update is going to be nice...

New gear in the Store:
We’ve created 50 cool new gear items and added them to the store, so every time you buy a Gear Pack you’ve got a chance of getting these items! There are new woods, irons, wedges, putters and balls, 10 of which are Pro grade, 30 are Elite, and 10 are Extreme! Some belong to sets, with an associated Set Bonus if you equip them all, and every item has a unique combination of stats. They look very cool too (we particularly like the Great White Woods, Savage Beast Irons and Haunted Ball) so why not head to the Store and see what you can get?!

Increased credits payouts:
We’ve boosted the amount of credits you’ll earn in several places (hey, we like to be generous!) Firstly, when you replay a career event and achieve a goal you’ve already beaten, you’ll now earn credits for repeating that goal. We’ve also increased the amount of credits earned when playing Local Multiplayer, so you get more reward for the time invested. Finally, the prizes for beating a Rival are now calculated based on performance, so the better your opponent’s round, the greater the reward if you beat them!

New Rival notifications:
With playing against Rivals proving so popular, we’ve added new notifications that let you see the names of any players who have beaten your best rounds. You can view a list of these ‘Recent Rivals’ and immediately challenge their latest scores! Look for the notifications on the Welcome Back screen when you start the game.

Other improvements:
We’ve also added new cameras to show off more dramatic elements of gameplay, improved some character animations, and fixed a number of bugs to ensure that the gameplay experience is as smooth and stable as possible.

We’re hoping to provide more updates in the future, but in the meantime, enjoy the game!
