Sega announced at the Sonic the Hedgehog SXSW 2017 panel that Project Sonic is officially titled Sonic Forces.
According to Sonic Team studio head Takashi Iizuka, the name of the game comes from it's key element of "forces": the forces of good and the forces of evil. Sonic Forces starts with a unique twist, as Sonic and his friends failed and the world has been conquered by Dr. Eggman and his Eggman Empire. However, Sonic hasn't given up just yet and he will do all can to fight back.
From a gameplay perspective, Sonic Forces is described as "an evolution of Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations". Sonic Team, the team behind Colors and Generations, has paid close attention to the high and low points of both games, and has brought the best elements of these games into Sonic Forces.
Sonic Forces will feature three unique gameplay styles: Modern, Classic, and a third style yet to be revealed. Players can expect the high-speed gameplay of modern Sonic the Hedgehog gameplay, but also a lot of platforming, branching paths and exploration.
Sonic Forces releases this Holiday on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch.
