Sega have released a new trailer for their upcoming Sonic game 'Sonic Forces'... The trailer features a mixture of gameplay from both classic and modern Sonic, but more noticeably - and quite unexpectedly - the ability to be able to play as a custom made character. See for yourself in the trailer below:
As you will see, the custom hero editor will allow you to customise and create a character that would fit right at home in the Sonic universe. There was quite an extensive list of items to choose from, no word yet of some of these will be premium or whether they'll be free. You can also select which animal type you'd like from the list below - each with their own unique ability:
Wolf - Automatically draws nearby rings in.
Rabbit - Has a longer invincibility time after receiving damage.
Cat - Retains one ring after being hit.
Dog - Restarts with five rings following a death.
Bear - Blows foes away with a homing attack.
Bird - Has double jump abilities
Hedgehog - Collects rings when getting damaged
We have a feeling deviant art is going to have a field day with all these fan creations. Now anyone who has ever made their own custom Sonic Character can indulge to their hearts content and actually play as them in-game.
