Sonic Forces is the first game in the series to present players with character customization and will feature special "Tag Team" levels where you can join up with Sonic and friends, swapping between characters simultaneously.

Sonic Forces launches on November 7 and we are all pretty pumped to switch between modern 3D Sonic and traditional 2D Sonic gameplay.

Sonic the Hedgehog rival and noted edgelord Shadow the Hedgehog will be playable in the blue blur's new game, Sonic Forces.

The Add-on, named Episode Shadow, will focus on the backstory between Shadow and the new antagonist, mentioned earlier, named Infinite. "Plus, play as Shadow in over 10 Modern Sonic based stages!" the description for the downloadable content reads. "It looks like something more substantial is on the way too, though, as an wa=wsignin1.0">"Episode Shadow" has popped up on the official Microsoft digital storefront, where it says it'll be included with the "Digital Bonus Edition" at launch.

Also worth noting is the Shadow the Hedgehog costume for your Avatar character, meaning you'll effectively be able to play as Shadow in those Avatar stages, too. Perhaps in Episode Shadow, our edgy anti-hero will have matured and graduated to words such as "whippersnapper" and "malarkey".

According to Game Informer, Episode Shadow will have three stages in total, which won't be too long since this is a Sonic game.
