This topic was good and got turned into Sonic Frontiers To Be Publicly Playable at UK Games Expo EGX at some point.

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if it's too early to make a topic, but new news equals new topic so here we go. This one's for the UK folks!

In September, Sonic Frontiers will be playable at the ExCeL, located in London. It'll be there from the 22nd to the 25th, so for anyone attending you should be able to get a chance to play it at least once.

Unsure if we'll get footage from it, but I assume by then we'll have more info on the game.

I am loving that new official artwork. While not incredibly stylized, it still has a lively flair that's simply been absent from most other official renders over the last decade+.

Should've named this thread "Games Enquirer released a new official artwork of Sonic Frontiers (also demo coming to EGX)" cuz that's the bigger news for me right now.

After being conditioned to very same-y renders of Sonic for 15+ years, when I saw this one, I got very confused. I thought it was a fan work of some kind at first, but no, the account confirmed it came straight from SEGA and it genuinely looks cool.

...then I saw Sonic's mouth having the Sonic Dash syndrome and went "Ok yeah, that's SEGA's render.".

I wonder if Sega will try to dodge data-mine leaks by having Frontiers playable at a ton of events in the lead up to release rather than releasing a demo of some sort?

Might not be from Yuji Uekawa, but if this is the official box art, then I'll take it over the generic renders we have had during the 2010's.

Fancy getting your hands on Sonic Frontiers before the game is out this Winter? Well if you live in the UK (that's us!), you're in luck, as there will be public playtests of the upcoming Open-Zone platformer at the EGX game show in September 2022.

This will mark the first time that Sonic Frontiers will be available to the public, let alone the UK; previously, SEGA only allowed the select media attending Summer Games Fest 2022 in June to demo a segment of the game. It will probably be the same vertical slice of gameplay; a mostly open-zone experience, with a cyberspace 'linear'/'traditional' Sonic stage thrown in to the mix.

It looks like some brand new key art was also shared online as part of the announcement. You can see it in full below.

Here's a quote from SEGA and ReedPop (who organise EGX in the UK):

Quote

"Experience the rush of Sonic Frontiers for the first time in the UK, only at EGX

Play Sonic Frontiers first hand this September before its release in late 2022!

25th July - London, UK - Today, SEGA and ReedPop are happy to announce that EGX attendees will be able to experience the upcoming addition to the iconic Sonic franchise Sonic Frontiers during EGX, from the 22nd - 25th of September at the ExCeL in London.

Sonic Frontiers is Sonic’s first ever open-zone-inspired gaming experience. Rush through expansive landscapes, accelerate to new heights and experience the thrill of using Sonic’s speed like never before."

The show takes place from 22-25 September at London's ExCeL venue. If you want to come down to see the game, be sure to book tickets via the EGX official website.

Hmmmmm tempted to try and make a day trip possibly, not been to London in a few years.
Shows though that they must be pretty darn confident in the game if there planning to let the public get hands on with it in just two months time.

Uh-oh! Here we go 😀

Hoping its not going to be one of those instances where players say “Its shaping up to be awesome” or “Its fun, but needs a little more work” upon finishing the demo :S

With them revealing it at the game awards of all things (which as far as I know, Sonic hasn't done for a very long time) and how secretive (yet kind of open) they are about a lot of it, sega is placing a LOT of faith in Frontiers being a hit.

Let's hope they put their money where their mouth is and it actually is.

I agree. Same here. 🙂
