  • New Challenge Modes – After completing the main story campaign, players can access new challenge modes – Cyber Space Challenge and Battle Rush – via the title screen. The Cyber Space Challenge is a time-attack mode where players will compete against the clock to complete multiple Cyber Space stages in a row. Additionally, Sonic Frontiers will offer Battle Rush, a timed-battle mode where you fight multiple enemies, Guardians and Titans in one go.
  • Photo Mode – To capture memories of their time on the Starfall Islands, players can open the pause menu to access Photo Mode, which will pause gameplay and bring up a camera that is freely moveable.
  • Jukebox – Players can listen to their favourite Sonic songs all throughout the Starfall Islands with the new Jukebox. With 53 song tracks available, players will have instant access to 13 songs, and can unlock the remaining 40 songs by collecting Sound Memories on each island.

Stay tuned as two additional updates to Sonic’s open-zone, action-packed adventure will arrive later this year, including new features, challenges, playable characters and more.

Sonic Frontiers is available now on PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch™ family of systems.
