The first of three Sonic Frontiers content updates this year – the Sights, Sounds, and Speed Update – will be released on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
Fans may enjoy new features such as a Photo Mode to capture childhood adventures, new Challenge Modes to challenge their strength against strong foes, and the Jukebox to play their favorite Sonic Frontiers tracks around the Starfall Islands.
Open the pause menu to resume gameplay and bring up a freely moveable camera to focus on your travels during certain times.
Sonic may be captured in various situations, whether it's fighting enemies, rail grinding, or performing amazing Air Tricks. You may also choose between seven visual filters to enhance your images.
If you need assistance, you can turn on a grid to frame the perfect photograph, or reset the camera with the correct analog stick to change the subject's angle and mood.
