    Following the announcement of Sonic Mania's delay, SEGA has revealed their other Sonic game to the public, now titled Sonic Forces. The gameplay returns to a Generations/Colors/Unleashed style format, forgoing other, newer, gameplay styles that were attempted in Lost World and Boom. Sonic Forces is set to launch "holiday 2017" for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

    It looks more... on rails than Sonic Generations. Hm. I'm concerned.

    I have a feeling this will have performance issues, but I want Sega to prove me wrong.

    Already updated the engine? God thank you for that :bow:
     
  12. Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces? The year of Sonic! :)

    I'm ready to pre-order both of 'em and while Mania is available, it's still not known officially if it's getting a physical release. It would be idiotic of SEGA to make it digital-only, it's a game that could even sell more than Forces.

    P.S. Can anyone explain how or why "Sonic Forces" is a good title?

    Well, the visuals are great. Too bad you can't really pay much attention to them as you're speeding through the stage. I'll be keeping a wary eye on it, as I haven't enjoyed a single 3D sonic title ever thus far.

    Why is it named Sonic Forces, you ask?

    Because it once again Forces™ that kind of 3D rail gameplay that never did any good to the series.

    Not one to play fangames too much, unfortunately. Mind you, of all Sonic games I've played (I think I've played them all too), I enjoyed the original Sonic 1-3 and Sonic and Knuckles the most. I have high hopes for Sonic Mania because of that. Sonic Forces looks good in this trailer, but probably not something I'll get on release day unless they reveal gameplay that will draw me in.

    I Doubt we will ever get a sonic adventure like game again. I just hope this game is 2 players. I miss when sonic games was multiple players and didn't include a cast of characters that was only there for story, :glare:

    Love how people already take a dump on it after only seeing 30 seconds of gameplay... gameplay style, whatever on youtube and etc.
    This is obviously still in early developement, Sonic doesn't even have a Idle Animation yet. Sonic Generations' GHZ started like this too but got open more later.

    And again, this is only 1 of 3 Gameplay styles, if you don't like it, rush through it and enjoy the other 2.

    The last time they tried a Sonic Adventure-like game, we got 06. Seriously, those games were good at the time, but they're very outdated and mediocre at best nowadays.
