Sonic Forces is all about taking the world back from the clutches of Eggman after he launches a devastating attack. The Sonic Forces launch trailer (it’s out tomorrow) re-inforces this world building, and also acts as a speech appealing to your custom character to help with the resistance.
You can take a look at the trailer for yourself below.
It’s brown, gritty, and full of explosions. That’s the approach they’ve taken with Sonic Forces, and they’ve doubled down on it. If that’s your thing, then you’re in for a treat. It also seems keen to make clear that Sonic Forces is from “the same team that brought you” Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. Two Sonic games that were, to be fair, pretty good.
The trailer showcases all the different types of gameplay on offer, but seems to favour the custom character features. While Sonic is imprisoned by Eggman at the beginning of the game, your own custom character needs to help out the resistance in his absence (before they soon all team up, it seems).
It also gives a look at the different character customisation options, as well as the gadgets your character uses (that’s kind of their defining feature).
On top of that you also get a look at some of the many Sonic characters from throughout history that will be appearing in the game.
Sonic Forces is out on Nintendo Switch 7th October 2017, as well as on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
