As we have a look at our crossplay future, we’re centered on matchmaking in Professional Golf equipment, VOLTA, and FUT Co-Op, in addition to cross-platform foyer invitations and finally cross-platform Professional Golf equipment.”
So, what is new with Professional Golf equipment this yr? Effectively, firstly, it will likely be nearer related to avenue soccer mode VOLTA, with development shared throughout the 2. “This yr we constructed options that convey the Professional Golf equipment and VOLTA experiences nearer collectively, in order that no matter the way you and your mates really feel like taking part in on any given day, you’ll be making progress.”
