Golf With Your Friends is heading into outer space. The new Space Theme update brings a host of new features and optimizations to Blacklight Interactive's multiplayer minigolf extravaganza.
First up, there's a brand new level to enjoy. The new space-themed level features 18 holes, each of which contains a series of space-themed obstacles to test your minigolf prowess. The course is a mind-bending, gravity-defying experience that sees you launching balls across massive gaps and twisting chasms. Many of the new obstacles also alter the ball's trajectory; black holes, for example, will suck the ball towards them, making your shots less accurate.

It's not just the new 18-hole course though. Golf With Your Friends is also getting a couple of new powerups and mechanics. The new Randomizer powerup alters the shape of your ball, meaning you'll have to change your play to compensate. There's also a new ball-spinning mechanic which can be used in custom games to switch up gameplay. This new feature allows you to get creative with your shots, curving them and adjusting them to hit that sweet spot and get that hole in one. Lastly, Blacklight Interactive and Team17 are adding a host of gameplay tweaks and optimizations to Golf With Your Friends. This is likely to be mostly background stuff, as it's not listed in the update notes. Expect a subtly smoother gameplay experience.
You can download the Space Theme Update for Golf With Your Friends right now via Steam. If you want to keep up with the game, you can do so via the official Twitter and Facebook pages. Golf With Your Friends is still in Early Access right now, but the official Steam page says the game will launch in full "around mid to late 2019". Stay tuned for more news.
