Sonic Forces reveals ‘Rental Avatar’ system; ‘Infinite Battle’ and ‘Chemical Plant’ gameplay, screenshots

Swap Hero Characters at any point in the stage.

Sonic Forces

Sega has revealed a new “Rental Avatar” system, and released two new gameplay videos and a set of screenshots for Sonic Forces.

The first video showcases a battle against new enemy character Infinite, the Bird Hero Character fighting with the Lightning Wispon, and the Cat Hero Character with the Cube Wispon. Players will be able to take advantage of two different Hero Characters’ abilities and Wispons using the “Rental Avatar” swapping feature.

The Rental Avatar system allows players to access Hero Characters built by other players around the world, granting them the ability to use their Wispons and swap between their character and the Rental Avatar at any point in the level. This will allow players to utilize two different Wispons in a single level to find secret paths and overcome obstacles.

The second video features the Bird Hero Character utilizing the Drill Wispon in the Chemical Plant stage.

Sonic Forces is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on November 7 in North America and Europe, and November 9 in Japan.

Watch the footage below. View the screenshots at the gallery.
