Android users, get ready for real-time multiplayer races because Sonic Forces: Speed Battle has hit Android today after two weeks being an iOS exclusive. The game has been pretty popular, with 2 million downloads in its first 2 weeks. This behind-the-back racer focuses on player-vs-player battles and features 15 characters and 12 tracks set across three environments (with more coming according to the game’s developers). You build your roster of characters—as is always the case in games like this one—level up your squad, and run like crazy. And the game is cross-platform, so Android and iOS players will be racing together.
Android players who download the game from today until November 29th will get a free jumpstart bundle that includes a tier 1 Diamond Chest, 10,000 Gold Rings, and 150 Red Star Rings. I’m curious to see how much the game’s player base will expand when Android players join the party. The game saw 50 million matches in 2 weeks, which is pretty impressive given the low expectations players had. Enjoy your racing, Sonic fans, and don’t forget to get your hands on that free bundle.
