Sonic Forces Modern Sonic gameplay video and screens released – gameplay details revealed!

Yesterday, at a SEGA hosted SXSW panel, Project Sonic 2017 was revealed to be titled Sonic Forces. The panel featured a video showcasing the Modern Sonic gameplay, however no direct feed version was released so we had to rely on fans streaming from the audience. Thankfully, SEGA has now officially released that video to YouTube and, well, see for yourself!

Also released are two screens via a Game Informer article, seen after the break. The article itself reveals a few cool new things, thanks to an extended cut of the gameplay which was shown privately. Game Informer mentions that as you play, side-characters like Knuckles, Amy and the Chaotix communicate via radio to report on what they’re seeing during Eggman’s assault. It is also mentioned that these characters are not playable, as the game will only feature Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic and a third style that has yet to be revealed.

Update: A high res version of the video is floating about, so I ripped some high quality screens which can be seen after the break.

    DAY ONE!!!

    This game is a race hybrid. It has both secret rings and sonic dash elements. Exagerately linear. I expected a sonic adventure with some rpg element like a city. I have to agree with baller on this. Harlemknights day one wont do u any good.

    3 years 8 months and all they show ya is 30 secs. No full length trailer to get hype generated at all.

    I think I’m just gonna stick to Sonic Mania. I admire the seriously impressive production value, but the 3D-Sonic-Dash comparison seems mighty apt, and shoehorning classic Sonic in just feels like a half-measure. Legitimately thrilled for the modern Sonic fans, though, this seems like it’ll be a dream come true for them.

    Obviously still very early and plenty of time for surprises, but that being the footage to spear-head the hype train seems awfully telling.
