A release date for Sonic Frontiers has been revealed.
Announced during Gamescom 2022 in a new trailer, Sonic’s open-world game will launch on November 8. The clip also showcased some of the game’s different biomes, including a Green Hill Zone-style area, a metal metropolis, and a desert.
Though brief, the trailer also hinted at the game’s story, showing Sonic fighting giant robots in an effort to save Amy and fend off a mysterious floating figure.
Sonic Frontiers is coming to PS5, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Watch the new trailer below.
As Sonic’s first open world game, Sonic Frontiers set a high bar to achieve. Fans will be eager to see how Sega translates the frenetic platforming of the blue blur into an open 3D world. Fortunately, it proves more successful than previous 3D Sonic games, which were never able to live up to the acclaim of the original titles in the series.
This new trailer should ease some fans’ concerns. The first Sonic Frontiers gameplay shown earlier this year was met with largely apprehension from gamers, who were not won over by its artistic design, nor its somewhat linear segmentation. The gameplay shown here, however, suggests that the rest of the game will be more open .
