A lot of DLC is on the way to Sonic Frontiers going forward, as Sega has revealed a roadmap for the game that will expand in 2023 with free updates. While there’s no specific release date for the DLC batches and their content is subject to change, fans can expect more of the open-region platform to be added over the next year.
Update 1 will include a jukebox containing tracks from the excellent soundtrack, a photo mode, and new challenge modes to test your skills. For Update 2, there will be a new open area challenge to participate in, a new Koco to collect and celebrate Sonic’s birthday.
Update 3 will be the main event DLC, as this will see new playable characters added to the world and a new story to explore. In the roadmap image, Sega teased Knuckles, Tails, and Amy Rose as playable characters, each with their own unique skills to use in battle and exploration. It’s unclear if they’ll be playable in the main Starfall Islands sandbox, but Sonic Frontiers has several Cybernetic levels inspired by the classic Genesis games that they can fit in more easily.
Ahead of that DLC launch, fans can also download the free Holiday Cheer Suit DLC on December 21, which gives Sonic some carnival outfits to wear while he races around the Islands Starfall. If that’s still not enough Sonic for you, then go to your local Build-A-Bear Workshop as a new luxury collection of mascot Sega–based on his Sonic the Hedgehog 2 appearance–now available.
It is probably a better gift when compared to custom Sonic Xbox controller look like they’re designed to hurt your hands horribly.
“Sonic Frontiers marks a bold new direction for the series, combining traditional Sonic action with an open-ended approach to progression and exploration in its semi-open world,” Richard Wakeling said in GameSpot’s Sonic Frontiers reviews.
