Sega has released a new gameplay trailer for the upcoming 3D Sonic platformer game Sonic Forces. The game launches this holiday season.
In Sonic Forces players can play as two variations of Sonic the Hedgehog: Modern Sonic and Classic Sonic.
In addition to the two Sonics, Sonic Forces introduces a third character, known as the Custom Hero, in which players are able to create their own custom character, a first for the series.
The hero is created from a base of seven animal types, each of which possesses a unique ability. In addition to a standard grappling hook, custom heroes are able to equip various gadgets known as Wispons, such as a flamethrower, used for both attacking and traversal.
The game was first announced in July of 2016 before the release of the Nintendo Switch. Back then, the game was titled Project Sonic 2017.
Sonic Forces launches this holiday season for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
