Sonic Forces, the fast-paced action platformer from the team that brought you Sonic Colours and Sonic Generations, releases today on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In Sonic Forces, players speed through rolling ruined landscapes as Modern Sonic, catapult past perilous platforms as Classic Sonic, and use powerful new gadgets as their own Custom Hero Character. Battles feature iconic enemies and powerful new villains, including Dr. Eggman, Zavok, and Metal Sonic leading up to a fight against Sonic’s most powerful enemy yet, Infinite.

For Shadow fans, the free Episode Shadow Add-On will also be available starting today. The Add-On focuses on the mysterious backstory between Shadow and Infinite and includes an additional three Shadow stages, plus the ability to replay as Shadow in over 10 Modern Sonic Stages. Those who preordered the Sonic Forces Digital Bonus Edition or the Sonic Forces Physical Bonus Edition from retailers participating in the pre-order scheme will receive a Shadow costume for their Hero Character.

Also being released today is the fourth and final chapter of the Sonic Forces digital comic series scripted by Ian Flynn. Titled “Rise of Infinite,” the chapter tells the original story of Infinite and how he became Eggman’s evil accomplice - providing the perfect segue to the game. Check out the full “Rise of Infinite” chapter here.
