Sonic Forces is Getting Shadow as DLC, Gameplay Teaser Shared

Sonic Forces next DLC will be all about Shadow. The new Sonic Forces DLC featuring Shadow as its main character is set to be released on November 7. After the leak on the store page of Sonic Forces, Sega released the first gameplay video of Shadow in the new DLC showing his dashing skills. As the description states this add-on will be a prequel to the main storyline of Sonic Forces where we explore Shadow’s allegiance, the fate of Team Dark, and the origin of the mysterious villain, Infinite.

The last time we saw Shadow as a playable character was in 2006 in Sega Superstar Tennis so it’s fair to say that seeing him having his own expansion is an exciting turn of events. He may not be holding a gun, at least not in the specific gameplay trailer, but he sure has some cool moves.The full description of the DLC reads:

“Get Episode Shadow to uncover the untold story of the new villain, Infinite, and rediscover three updated stages playing as Shadow, Plus, play as Shadow in over 10 Modern Sonic based stages!”Experience the full story behind the new villain’s rise to power and as you find renewed replayablity across Modern Sonic stages. The fate of Sonic the Hedgehog’s world is in your hands – Join the Uprising.”

Sonic Forces was described by Sonic Team’s Takashi Iizuka as ‘an evolution of Sonic Colors e Sonic Generations’, that includes new concepts and modes. Also, the game is using a brand new engine called Hedgehog Engine 2, based on both new and old elements from the franchise.

Right now everyone on NeoGaf is trolling about the fact that Episode Shadow is coming to Sonic Forces, demanding DLC’s for every character in the franchise. As Shadow would say: This is like taking candy from a baby, which is fine by me.

Sonic Forces Episode Shadow will be coming to Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on November 7.
