Sony's insistence on taking the servers of its past multiplayer games offline continues as Everybody's Golf is confirmed to be the scheme's next unfortunate victim. The delightful putter will lose all its online functionality on 30th September 2022, leaving you with exactly six months to enjoy its internet-focused modes and features.
The official wording is present on the PlayStation website: "Online servers for Everybody’s Golf will shut down on 30th September 2022. All online features (including online multiplayer modes) will cease on that date. You will still be able to play and enjoy the game in single-player offline modes."
This means that from 1st October 2022, you'll lose access to open courses and international tournaments, daily and copy rankings, the use of Warp Medals, and many other things. Two Trophies will also become unobtainable, meaning you'll no longer be able to unlock the Platinum Trophy. The first is Online Debut, which tasks you with simply making it to an online open course. The other is Walking Encyclopedia, which is tied to completing the fish encyclopedia. Some of these items require online play, so you won't be able to complete the book without an internet connection.
Since developer Clap Hanz has gone the way of the smartphone for its latest release, who knows when (if ever) we'll have another up to date online offering from the Everybody's Golf franchise. Will you miss these multiplayer modes? Mourn their loss in the comments below.
