Sonic Forces is the latest installment of the Sonic franchise. It was announced at E3 2017 and released on November 7, 2017. The game takes place in a world where Dr. Eggman has taken over and turned the world into a military-industrial complex, with humans oppressed by robotic machines called “Robotnik’s Minions.” The game puts players in control of one of three characters: Sonic, Shadow, or Silver. This game is a part of a larger multimedia project, which includes an animated film, a comic book series, and a live-action TV show.
The game features a new story and cast of characters as well as returning playable characters from previous games in the franchise. Sonic Forces is a platformer that relies heavily on speed. The player must run through levels while jumping over obstacles and defeating enemies with a variety of attacks including punches, kicks, and homing attacks. The player also has access to various power-ups that can be collected for temporary boosts such as invincibility or increased speed.
