Huge Christmas update for Golfstar

Hamburg, December 21, 2011 – Christmas has come early to Golfstar, gamigo's golf MMO. Its latest update adds a wealth of new content and improvements to the game. The two new courses, Redwood and Aztec, will certainly add plenty of new excitement. The narrow fairways and high trees of Redwood are ideal for experienced golfers and Aztec really takes things a step further. Pro golfers will need to take care not to get distracted by the impressive ancient architecture if they want to succeed on this tricky course!

For those who can't get enough of quests, there will be plenty of new tasks to complete on the new courses. In addition to that, the Christmas update also contains a daily quest system. Other new additions include an improved ranking system that allows players to keep track of their progress and success. An expansion of the crafting system makes enhancing improved items possible. Countless changes to the user interface will make playing even more enjoyable.

The lobby has been decked with boughs of holly and two new songs are sure to fill golfers with holiday cheer. Players can complete special Christmas quests to win holiday costumes for their characters as well as reindeer antlers and Christmas golf balls.
