Sonic Forces is an upcoming platform video game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. First announced as Project Sonic 2017 in July 2016, the game is scheduled for a worldwide release in late 2017.
As with Sonic Team’s previous main series title, Sonic Generations, the game will contain two variants of Sonic the Hedgehog: Classic Sonic, the design featured more prominently in Sega’s Sonic games for the Sega Genesis, and Modern Sonic, his revised form that was first introduced in Sonic Adventure. In the game’s story, series antagonist Doctor Eggman has successfully conquered the world, with his giant robotic sentries laying waste to cities to further his conquest, and the two Sonics, aided by a resistance force, must unite to end Eggman’s reign. Other characters, such as Tails, Knuckles, Amy and the Chaotix, will make non-playable appearances in supporting roles, offering support and advice to Sonic via radio communication.
