Sega’s Sonic Frontiers was finally revealed in all of its glory at The Game Awards 2021 and as the rumors suggested, it looks to be set in a massive open world. It releases in Holiday 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. Check it out below.
Touting “open-zone” freedom, Sonic Frontiers is set on Starfall Islands which features a variety of different biomes from forests to deserts. Points of interest include waterfalls, towers and what seem to be remains of a past civilization (as is to be expected in a Sonic game). Of course, there are some big threats to battle as well along with a disembodied voice that seemingly needs help.
Time will tell if this lays the foundation for the series like Sonic Adventure did but this is definitely a bold new direction. Stay tuned for more details and gameplay in the coming months along with additional announcements and coverage from The Game Awards 2021.
