With the Sonic Frontiers launch date now solely two months away, SEGA has determined to share an outline trailer to coach followers on the options of the upcoming open world platform game.

Our personal Kai Powell had the possibility to attempt the game on the Summer Game Fest and didn’t come away impressed.

The numerous actions in Sonic Frontiers largely really feel disjointed from each other to this point. Here Sonic has a big open-world map with security bumpers in place to maintain the participant moving ahead on one observe early on (with hills too tall to scale on one aspect and limitless pits of clouds and open skies on the opposite). The actions and factors of curiosity really feel randomly thrown collectively with out one thing to essentially bind them collectively. As Sonic runs via the valley, there could possibly be bumper pads to launch him up onto an aerial platform that he can discover for extra rings or a grind rail that results in certainly one of Amy’s Memory Pieces earlier than dropping him again off onto the trail he was already taking.

If Sonic Frontiers desires to be a novel and memorable expertise for grown-up Sonic followers, I do hope that these guiding rails drop away shortly into the expertise and Sonic actually has the chance to discover these Frontiers together with his personal two toes.

There’s nonetheless hope for the ultimate launch, although. The game can be accessible from Tuesday, November eighth globally for PC (Steam), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and Nintendo Switch. If you pre-order Sonic Frontiers, you may get the Adventurer’s Treasure Box, which comprises Skill Points, Red Seeds of Power, and Blue Seeds of Defense to provide Sonic a lift on his new journey.

There can be a Digital Deluxe Edition ($10 costlier) with the Explorer’s Treasure Box, which comprises: Amy’s Memory Tokens, Knuckles’ Memory Tokens, Tails’ Memory Tokens, Portal Gears, Chaos Emerald Vault Keys, Additional Gloves & Shoes for Sonic, and a Digital Art Book with a 25-track Digital Mini Soundtrack.
