Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice
"The iconic 'blue blur', Sonic the Hedgehog, will be racing once again in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice as the game introduces more adventure, speed, exploration, and an all-new fire and ice gameplay element that will help propel the action. The game will also feature the triumphant return of Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy and Sticks. Sonic and friends must re-claim each island by destroying enemies, vanquishing the Island Defender, winning rival races, and reversing the flow of the elemental tubes. It all culminates with an epic battle on the Island of Ragna Rock where Sonic may just have to save Dr. Eggman from his own creation.
Dr. Eggman has discovered the supercharged element ragnium on the mythical Island of Ragna Rock. He mines it as a fuel source, piping off the messy by-products of the operation to adjacent islands, creating fire and ice gameplay. Using this fuel to power his ultra-fast bot racers is his latest plan to discredit his eternal rival Sonic, but backed by ragnium, fire and ice, a robot army, and D-Fekt, an unflinchingly powerful henchman, this time Dr. Eggman just may succeed.
"To create an entirely new experience, Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice will infuse fire and ice elements throughout gameplay, enabling new abilities to play out in special character moves and interactions with environments. Harness the power of fire and ice to blaze through obstacles, puzzles, and freeze enemies in their tracks, run through the game at top speed or take your time with deeper exploration and puzzle play.
Also new to Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice is the introduction of Bot Racing. Compete with your friends in 2 player bot racing and collect artifacts to compete on six additional tracks - an extension of the game that is purely about racing and speed, where a user will unlock character-themed Bots to challenge friends on fast courses or tracks.
PLUS: You can play as each team member - utilise Sonic’s speed, Tails’ flight, Knuckles’ strength, Sticks’ Boomerang and Amy’s hammer to explore, fight and race through an undiscovered land, battle bosses so huge they take up both screens AND play mini games filled with challenging puzzles and time trials including a new iteration of the popular Sea Fox.
