Ahead of Geoff Keighley’s non-E3 but also some sort of E3 Summer Games Fest next week, Sonic Team released an extremely short teaser for Sonic Limits†
I know there’s a vocal subset of the gaming community that hates it when a new, vaguely open-world-looking game is shown and the game press mentions it”Breath of the Wild satisfies X”, so I’m not going to do that. Instead I’m going to say it looks like Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn had a baby with sonic† (Please don’t google “X has a baby with Sonic.”)
In it, Sonic freeruns through a light-drenched, flower-strewn landscape dotted with futuristic-looking ruins. While several games have shown Sonic roaming in a boundless world, the aesthetic in Borders is so very different from the previous 3D sonic spell. It looks more realistic than Sonic Adventure† Sonic ’06or Sonic Unleashed† In the briefest glimpse of gameplay, it looks like the Blue Blur is a little less constrained by the forced 3D and 2D perspectives of previous games. It looks like he can run in a truly open world, collect rings, grind rails and take down monstrous robots reminiscent of the mechanical beasts in the Horizon franchisee.
Sonic Limits and more will be showcased at Summer Games Fest next week.
