Sonic Frontiers' Final Free Content Update Adds New Playable Characters In September

When Sonic Frontiers was released late last year, it was generally regarded as good but "rough around the edges." Because of that, it's been great to see Sega move to support the game further post-launch with a series of updates with free content. Teased today at Gamescom, the next pack of content, known as "The Final Horizon" update, is the most exciting yet, promising new story, new challenges, and even new playable characters.

The teaser itself doesn't give us much to go on. Sonic and friends stand on the edge of a cliff, ready to face a massive Titan. Knuckles, Amy, and Tails are all candidates to be playable characters in the future, but there's no indication of that here – Sonic summons the Chaos Emeralds to become Super Sonic, ready to face off against this mysterious threat, then powers up yet again as he races toward the Titan.

For any more details, we'll have to wait until the full update drops on September 28, just over a month from now. If you're itching for more Sonic news, check out the latest issue of our digital magazine to learn about Sonic Superstars. You can also learn about its newly announced release date.
