After an eight-month wait since the game's original announcement, fans are finally given a release date for SEGA's Sonic Frontiers. Now scheduled for launch in November, the company dropped a new story trailer during Gamescom offering players a first look at what the game's plot would entail.
A lot of its context and premise have been kept under wraps for now in light of the animated prologue with Knuckles, but we do get an introduction of some of Sonic's main foes in the new open-world experience as well as a glimpse of his mission, which seems to be saving his captured friends, including Amy Rose. Aside from a closer look at the story, the trailer also showcases a few clips of its gameplay, and it's very much what you'd expect from a 3D Sonic the Hedgehog game. Aside from exploring a vast open world at super speed, there'll also be nods to previous installments via 2D platforming and grind rails making a comeback. Iconic locations like Green Hill Zone and Sky Sanctuary will also be available.
For the Sonic fans out there, Sonic Frontiers will arrive on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC November 8.
In other gaming news, the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake has reportedly landed at a new developer.
