Sega Unveils Sonic Forces Digital Bonus Edition and Free DLC

Sega announced a new digital bonus edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners featuring some special add-ons, alongside new DLC centering around Shadow the Hedgehog.

Sega is continuing its promotion of the upcoming Sonic Forces with some new announcements about the game and a new trailer as well (which you can view above).

The company revealed that all purchasers of Sonic Forces will receive the free day-one DLC "Episode Shadow", and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can pre-purchase the Digital Bonus Edition of the game starting now to receive a few additional items.

"Episode Shadow" focuses on Shadow the Hedgehog's relationship to the enigma that is Infinite, and explores the fate of Team Dark as well. You will be able to play as Shadow in more than 10 modern Sonic-style stages, but you also get three Shadow-specific stages as well. Whether the hedgehog maintains G-rated language throughout, though, Sega didn’t say. 

Sega also revealed that the Digital Bonus Edition of Sonic Forces includes the previously announced Atlus add-ons -- featuring AiAi from Super Monkey Ball and Persona 5's Joker, among others. However, it also adds an extra Shadow skin for your character, special avatars, a couple of themes, and automatically includes the Episode Shadow DLC. As mentioned, this special set is only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players, with nothing mentioned as of yet about plans for a Nintendo Switch bonus edition.
