Sonic Forces and Total War: Warhammer II march on PAX West 2017 for Sega

The 2017 PAX West expo begins in just a few days, and Sega has unveiled the two games they plan to showcase at the Seattle-based event… Sonic Forces and Total War: Warhammer II.

Sonic Forces will be showcasing three action-packed stages featuring Modern Sonic, Classic Sonic and an all new, series-first, fully customizable Hero character, blazing through enemy laden levels at breakneck speed. Sonic Forces puts players in a world already taken over by Dr. Eggman and his evil group of henchmen, which includes Chaos, Metal Sonic, Shadow, and Zavok who are ready to create next-level panic and disorder. Come along and check it out on one of our eight PlayStation 4 stations.

Once you’re done with collecting rings, take up arms and crush your foes in Total War: Warhammer II. The second part of Creative Assembly’s epic fantasy trilogy brings players a breath-taking new narrative campaign, set across the vast continents of Lustria, Ulthuan, Naggaroth and the Southlands. The Great Vortex Campaign builds pace to culminate in a definitive and climactic endgame, an experience unlike any other Total War title to date. There will be two playable quest battles on offer across 27 PCs, featuring three out of the four races available at launch: Skaven vs Lizardmen and Skaven vs Dark Elves.

Both games will be available to play in Sega’s booth, which will be located on Level 4 in Booth #1601.

New Sonic Forces trailer introduces the villains

Each new Sonic Forces trailer is more serious than the last. And the trailer that Sega created for this year’s E3 Expo is no exception.

The trailer gives us our first glimpse at Infinite, the ultimate evil behind the post-apocalyptic world of Sonic Forces. And also say hello to the rest of the game’s villains in a dark and moody new video that reintroduces Dr. Eggman, Metal Sonic, Chaos, Shadow, and Zavok:

The Villains of Sonic Forces

  • Doctor Ivo “Eggman” Robotnik: The original Mad Genius Doctor, and Sonic’s nemesis. After countless failed attempts, his plan to take over the world seems to finally be succeeding.
  • Metal Sonic: One of the evil doctor’s most powerful creations, Metal Sonic first appeared in Sonic CD, and has returned at a few key moments since.
  • Chaos: An ancient power thought to have been quelled after the events of Sonic Adventure. His return is a mystery.
  • Shadow: Once called “The Ultimate Life Form,” Shadow fights for his own reasons. He appeared in Sonic Adventure 2.
  • Zavok: The leader of a group known as The Zeti, Zavok is a powerful warrior who was first seen in Sonic Lost World.

Sonic Forces will be released for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch this Fall.

Sega and Atlus announced their E3 2017 lineup

Sega originally acquired Atlus in 2013, but the two companies continued to operate separately in the years that followed. But they’ve been growing closer in 2017, and this year’s E3 Expo marks the first time that Sega and Atlus are presenting a joint booth to the industry.

As you might expect, the Sega half of the booth will be anchored by Sonic the Hedgehog… more specifically, this Summer’s Sonic Mania and this Fall’s Sonic Forces. Both games will share space with two upcoming Yakuza games (Yakuza 6: The Song of Life and Yakuza Kiwami), as well as Total War: Warhammer II and a bevy of Atlus-branded RPGs.

“We’re really pleased to see Yakuza and Sonic back on the biggest stage for video games, and having the first public hands-on for Total War: Warhammer II underlines a really strong showing from Sega and Atlus this year,” said John Clark, the Senior Vice President for Sega Europe. “We look forward to welcoming trade visitors but we’re especially looking forward to having the public come and see our line-up this year, it’s great for E3 and it’s great for publishers. We’re confident there’s something for everyone on the Sega stands this year.”

The 2017 E3 Expo opens its doors this Tuesday, June 13, and you can find Atlus and Sega’s full lineup after the break. (more…)
