Sonic Frontiers: Final Horizon Update Brings Unexpected Difficulty

Sonic Frontiers, Sega's latest entry in the popular hedgehog franchise, recently received its final free content update, The Final Horizon. The update promised a new story, new playable characters, and new challenges. However, players are finding The Final Horizon to be much more difficult than the base game.

Since the update's release, players have taken to social media to express their frustration and excitement over the increased difficulty. One area of challenge is adjusting to the different movement mechanics of Sonic's companions, Knuckles, Tails, and Amy. Completing trial towers, which lack checkpoints, has also proven to be a daunting task. Additionally, players are struggling to defeat the update's tough new boss, Tank+, a spider tank that relentlessly fires bullets at Sonic.

Adding to the difficulty, some players are reporting that the update now requires them to perfect parry enemies during trials. This new requirement has posed a significant challenge for many players.

While some players welcome the increased difficulty as a refreshing update, others are hoping that Sega will patch the game to make the boss fights and challenges more balanced. There is a sentiment among players that the difficulty spike feels unfair and discouraging at times.

The Final Horizon does offer a new Super Sonic form for players to enjoy. This superpowered version of Sonic may provide some assistance in overcoming the game's final challenges.

Overall, Sonic Frontiers' Final Horizon update has elicited mixed reactions from players. While some appreciate the added challenge, others find it overly difficult and even frustrating. Regardless, it is clear that this update has brought an unexpected level of difficulty to the game.
