The review embargo for the latest entry in Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog series, Sonic Frontiers, has been revealed.
According to Metacritic, the review embargo for Sonic Frontiers is expected to end early on November 7, 2022, a day ahead of the game’s release. Fans can, therefore, look forward to hearing what critics have to say about the game before grabbing their copies and embarking on the blue hedgehog’s latest adventure.
Previously, the pre-load date, file size, and PC system requirements for Sonic Frontiers were also revealed. In addition to the updated PC system requirements on Steam, database entries for the pre-load date, download size, and the most recent update for the PS4 and PS5 versions of Sonic Frontiers were revealed via PlayStation Game Size. The game will be available for pre-load on November 6, 2022, a day before the review embargo is lifted.
Sonic Frontiers is an upcoming 3D platformer developed by Sonic Team and published by Sega. After Sonic, Miles “Tails” Prower, and Amy Rose separate when falling through a wormhole, the player takes on the role of Sonic the Hedgehog and explores the mysterious Starfall Islands in order to gather the Chaos Emeralds. This is the series’ first open world, where players will solve puzzles to gather items, battle robot enemies, and incorporate platforming and classic Sonic elements like rings and grind rails. Players will also be able to fine-tune Sonic’s speed, turning, acceleration, and resistance in Sonic Frontiers.
Following the release of Sonic Forces, development of Sonic Frontiers began in 2017. Takashi Iizuka, the head of Sonic Team, wanted Sonic Frontiers to establish a new standard for future Sonic games. The Sonic Team decided on an open-ended design and concentrated on adapting Sonic’s abilities to an open world setting. Sonic Frontiers will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on November 8, 2022.
