Sonic Frontiers, Sonic the Hedgehog’s latest adventure, has finally been given an official release date. The Sonic franchise’s first open-world title sends Sonic to the Starfall Islands in search of all the powerful Chaos Emeralds. After falling through a mysterious wormhole, Sonic and his friends Miles “Tails” Prower and Amy Rose will need the Chaos Emeralds to find their way home.
There are going to be plenty of new elements to look forward to for fans of the blue blur, including puzzle-solving, which is something that’s never had a true place in the Sonic series before but will be featured prominently in Sonic Frontiers. Of course, the speedy gameplay rings to collect, and grind rails will be making their return. But this game is all about signaling a new direction for the classic series as well as introducing a selection of unique design decisions.
Sonic will retain many of his previous abilities, such as a powerful double jump, boost power, combo attacks, and more. As the game progresses, players will be able to customize Sonic’s controls and eventually upgrade his speed, attacks, ring capacity, and other abilities.
Sonic Frontiers: Release Date
Sonic Frontiers has a confirmed release date of November 8, 2022.
Sonic Frontiers is scheduled to launch on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It’ll hit all platforms on the same day. After some time where Sega had demurred from offering an exact day for debut, fans were thrilled to finally hear that there would be a new Sonic adventure with a concrete release date.
And if you want to get your hands on a copy of the game with everything, you’ll want to do so before it comes out so you can take advantage of the bonuses available at various retailers. They aren’t that dissimilar, but they do differ in terms of the types of SteelBook boxes they come with. If you want Sonic on the cover, you should probably get your copy of the game from GameStop. Here’s a summary of what each retailer has to offer.
Sonic Frontiers Gameplay
Sonic Frontiers was given the spotlight in an exclusive reveal from IGN. In it, seven minutes of uninterrupted gameplay were shown, as well as a look at traversal, and what enemies Sonic will be up against. We’ve embedded the gameplay trailer below, but make sure to head over to IGN for the full scoop.
Given that Holiday 2022 is only a few months away, we should be hearing more about Sonic Frontiers very soon. It would be great to see some more gameplay before the official release date is announced.
Sonic Frontiers Trailer
As we mentioned previously, there has only been one cinematic trailer released for Sonic Frontiers so far. It is very much an announcement trailer, holding back gameplay and instead focusing on the new setting. Sonic can be seen racing around Starfall Islands and facing down giant enemies.
