The Hedgehog 2 Engine Looks Stunning

Sonic Forces, Sonic the Hedgehog

Running on the new Hedgehog 2 engine, Sega’s upcoming Sonic Forces is the most graphically accomplished Sonic game ever made. Watching a hands-off behind-closed-doors gameplay presentation at EGX Rezzed in London, we were able to get a much closer look at the detail that has gone into its design. Slowing gameplay to a halt and panning around the level, product manager Jim Dyer explained that Forces boasts a level of fidelity never before seen in a Sonic game. Features such as real-time water reflections, particle effects, and vibrant lighting certainly bring¬†3D Sonic into the current generation.

Dyer also made special mention of obstacles such as cones having their own special physics, reacting realistically in a manner one wouldn’t normally expect to see in a fast-paced 3D platformer. We were told that the concept designing a Sonic game with such a high level of detail wasn’t just about making it current-gen worthy though, it was about building an immersive world.
