HIT THE LINKS ANYTIME AS BANDAI NAMCO ENTERTAINMENT AMERICA INC. LAUNCHES WINNING PUTT ON STEAM FOR PC
Free-To-Play Multiplayer Online Golf Game Tees Off with New Course and Features
SANTA CLARA, Calif., (October 25, 2016) – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. and Webzen Onnet today announces the free-to-play, multiplayer PC title, Winning Putt, is now available on Steam. Winning Putt is an immersive online golf game where players customize and build their character for a one-of-a-kind online golf experience.
With the official launch of Winning Putt, players can now access new content, such as the new Thailand inspired Maiphai Hills golf course which is open to level seven players and above. Players can also jump into the Course Master feature, a new mode that rewards players for each challenge they complete, which is done by beating the Non-Playable Characters’ (NPC) strokes.
“BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment is excited to be working with Webzen Onnet on officially launching Winning Putt,” said In Joon Hwang, Senior Director, Digital Games at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc.. “Winning Putt broadens our catalogue of free-to-play games and brings an immersive and vibrant golfing experience to PCs that only the experienced team at Webzen Onnet could provide.”
With Winning Putt, players enter a deep, virtual world in which they can level up their avatar, see the direction and velocity of wind, sense the slope of a green, and use special unlockable skills to drive under par or even get a hole-in-one. A player’s game improves with every hole and each game unlocks more skills and increases resources players can use to acquire new skills and gadgets.
For players interested in the most authentic experience, there are nine pristine golf courses with realistically simulated surroundings to select from. Players looking for a more fantastical time can tee off on Starglen, an alien planet that is as difficult as it is other-worldly. Players can also enchant clubs for even more power in their drives and customize their appearance from golf apparel to space suits.
Players looking for a frighteningly good time should visit the time-limited Halloween Event. Until November 3rd, golfers can not only enjoy seasonal decorations in the Winning Putt Square, but most importantly earn special Halloween Goody Bags. These bags contain valuable items, such as special costumes, Halloween themed clubs, accuracy-increasing golf balls or Halloween Candy that adds more swings to the players’ next shots.
