Sonic Frontiers’ latest free update adds new playable characters and extra story

Sonic Frontiers has had some impressive updates since its launch in late 2022, adding in new challenge modes, additional features and new story content. The final free update has landed this week, adding in more playable characters and new missions to complete. 

If you install this week's Sonic Frontiers update, you'll find a bunch of new content when you boot up the game. For starters, characters like Tails, Knuckles and Amy are now playable, so you can swap Sonic out for one of his pals, each with their own unique abilities.

This update also introduces new story content set after the events of the main game. You'll need to have finished the main campaign first and once that's done, a new portal will appear on Ouranos Island. Go through the portal and take on the extra challenges that await you on the other side.

While the extra story here is nice, the headliner is really the extra playable characters, as Tails, Knuckles and Amy have not been playable in a 3D sonic game since the release of Sonic the Hedgehog in 2006.

KitGuru Says: Now that all of the updates are out and Sonic Frontiers seems to run better than it did at launch, I think it is finally time for me to jump in.
