SEGA has announced a 'Digital Bonus Edition' of Sonic Forces; like the retail Bonus Edition it'll include some free DLC outfits, but sadly pre-ordering the download for the bonus is only confirmed so far for Xbox One and PS4. On the plus side, Switch is included in the bigger announcement - that Shadow will be playable in the game.

That's part of the free 'Episode Shadow Add-on' DLC that will arrive on launch day. It'll have three new levels, and you can see some footage and story below.

A prequel to the main storyline of Sonic Forces, this add-on content explores Shadow's allegiance, the fate of Team Dark, and the origin of the mysterious villain, Infinite.

You'll also be able to play through ten Modern Sonic levels as Shadow, too.

Are you pleased with this free addition to Sonic Forces?
