Sonic Forces is an upcoming platform video game developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. An installment in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, the game was announced in commemoration of its 25th anniversary, and will be released worldwide in 7th November 2017.
Sonic Forces follows Sonic the Hedgehog as he leads a resistance force against Doctor Eggman, who has taken over the world with the help of his robot army and a mysterious new villain known as Infinite. Gameplay is similar to Sonic Generations with players controlling “Classic” and “Modern” versions of the titular character; the former plays from a 2.5D side-scrolling view reminiscent of the original Sonic games on the Sega Genesis, while the latter uses three-dimensional gameplay similar to Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Colors. In addition to the two Sonics, Sonic Forces also introduces a third gameplay mode featuring the “Avatar”, the player’s own custom character.
