Last month, the long-awaited inclusion of Super Sonic had finally come to pass for Sonic Forces, but there was a nasty catch: the Chaos Emerald-powered hedgehog would have only remained free for a limited time.

The plan was for Super Sonic to be free only for a month—from its official release right before Christmas up until yesterday—before a $1.99 USD paywall would pop up for the series staple transformation beyond that point, punishing late Sonic Forces adopters. The time had finally come, but no changes appear to have been made to the pricing.
Thankfully there’s a good reason for that. After going over widespread community feedback, SEGA have changed their stance on the matter, and so the Super Sonic DLC will remain a free download indefinitely!
More good news: we’ve updated the plan for Super Sonic DLC in Sonic Forces!
Starting today, the Super Sonic DLC will be free – forever.

The announcement follows today’s full solicitation reveals for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog comics from IDW Publishing.
