Now available for iOS devices is Sonic Forces: Speed Battle, a real-time multiplayer game that pits players against opponents from around the world in action-packed battles.
Developed by HARDlight, the UK-based studio known for games like Sonic Dash and Crazy Taxi: City Rush, this new game features 15 playable characters from the upcoming Sonic Forces console game. This includes fan favorites like Classic Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, and Omega, as well as lesser-seen characters like Zavok, Metal Sonic, and Chaos. At launch, the game offers 12 tracks, set across three unique environments, two of which were inspired by the Sonic Forces console game. Players can build a roster of characters, leveling up their squad in an effort to battle their way up global and regional leaderboards.
“With its fast-paced multiplayer action, Sonic Forces: Speed Battle continues our vision of bringing entertaining, high-quality titles to the mobile space,” said Takashi Iizuka, VP of Product Development of SEGA of America. “We look forward to seeing how fans respond to the unique runner style and competitive gameplay.”
Sonic Forces: Speed Battle is now available to download for free (with rewarded ads and in app purchases) from the App Store for iPhone and iPad. A version of the game for Android will be releasing for Android via Google Play on Nov. 16. The console game Sonic Forces is scheduled to launch on Nov. 7 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
