Powerstar Golf Gets Bigger (and Free-er)
So I’m not a big golfing fan. I can’t even tell you how bad I am with a club in my hand, but for those of you who might be a little closer to hitting par than I am, you can officially try out the Xbox One exclusive Powerstar Golf for free! A new update to the game allows for a new Trial System, similar to Killer Instinct. You are given one character and can play through a bunch of free events, then if you want to unlock more of the game you can do so as you choose. In addition to the new free trial, paying players will now also get access to a brand new course for them to try their luck on. So whether you are an old veteran or new to the sport, then you should check this one out.
