▍Sonic Frontiers Gameplay
As the first open-world 3D game of the series, Sonic Frontiers takes players to a vast archipelago with Sonic’s supersonic speed. The story takes the stage in the Starfall Islands, an unknown area where an ancient civilization sleeps. Sonic’s new adventure begins in a land full of mysterious ruins and eerie enemies.
Sonic Frontiers features the next generation of stage-clearing action by combining all of the levels into a seamless Open-Zone world. There are Challenges scattered all over the place, so players can enjoy high-velocity gameplay without being bound to the confines of a “course”.
The map is also packed with tons of other things to do, such as Battles, Puzzles, and Cyber Space levels, giving Sonic more room to run and explore his surroundings!
For combat, Sonic can now chain together various combos and perform dodges, parries, and counters to more effectively dismantle his enemies. You can unlock more moves in the game, and if you prefer a more relaxed combat experience, the game offers an Auto Mode which causes attack combos to be executed automatically with a single button.
