You don’t need to rely on Sonic and his pals in Sonic Forces as you can create your own character

By Kin Boon on May 17, 2017

The Sonic game franchise is more than 20 years old, and it’s well-known to the point where everyone is familiar with the characters in it, namely the speedy blue hedgehog itself, Tails and Knuckles. While you can expect to see them in Sonic Forces, you don’t necessarily have to rely on them as the main protagonist, as you can now create your own custom character.

For the first time in the series, you can create a personalized character and play alongside the likes of Sonic, Tails and Knuckles. This can be done by picking an animal of choice with their own unique powers, which are listed below (thank you, IGN!):

  • Bear: Blows away enemies with a homing attack
  • Bird: Flies high with double jump abilities
  • Cat: Keeps one ring after being hit
  • Dog: Restarts with five rings after the player dies
  • Hedgehog: Collects rings when getting damaged
  • Rabbit: Has longer invincible time after receiving damage
  • Wolf: Automatically draws in rings when near them

Beyond the power setup, you can also customize your character using unlockable cosmetic items, along with the option to augment your hero with Wispons, which are gadgets that can be used in both combat and for platforming.

This feature might seem cool and all, but it remains to be seen how it’ll affect the general reception Sonic Forces will get when it launches later this year, considering Sonic’s past entries were mostly mediocre, to say the least.
