I’m really looking forward to the two Sonic games Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces that will be released later this year. In Sonic Forces players will be able to play as two variations of Sonic, Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic similar to the previous Sonic game Sonic Generations.
SEGA have just released a trailer for Sonic Forces which shows that players will have the ability to create their own character in Sonic Forces to aide Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic.
Players will be able to pick from the following types of animals to aide Sonic in their adventure:
Wolf — Automatically draws in rings when near them
Rabbit — Has longer invincible time after receiving damage
Cat — Keeps one ring after being hit
Dog — Restarts with five rings after the player dies
Bear — Blows away enemies with a homing attack
Bird — Flies high with double jump abilities
Hedgehog — Collects rings when getting damaged
You’ll also have access to gadgets, which will allow your character to have additional unique abilities.
Here is the official synopsis.
In a world where Eggman has taken over, even two Sonics will need some help. For the first time in the series’ history, create and play as your own custom character in the war to take back the planet.
Sonic Forces launches Autumn 2017 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
