Now Playing: Sonic Forces - Custom Hero Trailer

Sonic Forces

In addition to playing as Sonic, you'll be able to create and play as your own character in the upcoming Sonic Forces.

Sega announced the news today with a new trailer, which you can watch above. It highlights many of the customization options available to you, including tweaking your body, color, gloves, footwear, and headgear.

We also get a peek at a custom character in action, as well as some of the gadgets you'll be able to use in the game, including a flamethrower and a grappling hook of sorts. The video concludes with another quick look at Forces' modern-style, 3D Sonic action, and a 2D side-scrolling segment.

Sonic Forces, formerly known as Project Sonic 2017, is one of two new Sonic games being released this year, along with Sonic Mania. Like that game, Forces is slated for release on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. For more, check out the gameplay videos we've seen that show a city under siege and Forces' version of the Green Hill Zone.
