Sega has shared a new speed strats video for their recently released action-adventure title, Sonic Frontiers, detailing various essential functions prospective players should know of the new open zone gameplay format. Upgrades, fast travel, and the power boost are some of the showcased mechanics.

However, one tip players might not be aware of is Rail Launching, letting Sonic take significant shortcuts utilizing speed and momentum. Even if this trick was initially unintentional, it’s a really satisfying maneuver to execute.

Sonic Frontiers is now available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Throughout Sonic Frontiers, Sonic finds himself stranded on the Starfall Islands after being separated from his friends, Tails, and Amy. A mysterious AI-like voice then begins guiding him to find the Chaos Emeralds and defeat the island’s Titans, which will supposedly save his friends. However, a new character, Sage, is impeding Sonic on his quest to do so.

Sonic Frontiers features an “open-zone” gameplay style, where players will freely explore five distinct islands housing unique biomes, puzzles, enemies, and more. Combat is a direct focus this time, with several enemy types to best and a skill tree to sink resources into. Moreover, the Cyber Space levels provide some familiar speed-centric linearity veteran fans can embrace.
