Have no fear, Super Sonic’s finally here to shine a light of hope in Sonic Forces!
Sonic Team released a Super Sonic DLC for Forces Friday morning, allowing fans to play as either the Classic or Modern form of the golden, superpowered hedgehog. Sonic transforms into Super Sonic upon collecting 50 rings, after which you can zip through over 20 stages as fast as your heart desires.
Super Sonic is free now, but on one condition. Unlike the first three DLCs–Episode Shadow, the SEGA/ATLUS costumes and the kindergarten-esque SANIC meme T-shirt–he will be free of charge until Jan. 23. Those who are tardy to the party will have to cough up $1.99 to download him. As if paying $2.99 for Sonic Runners Adventure hasn’t made us frugal enough already.
