Team Sonic Racing customization

The SEGA team behind Team Sonic Racing showed off a vehicle customization trailer for its upcoming title at today’s SXSW panel.

SEGA of America staff members Jasmin Hernandez, Aaron Webber, Jun Senoue, and Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka appeared during this panel to give a slew of updates to the world of Sonic the Hedgehog. Included in their talk was a video previewing the vast customization options that will be available in Team Sonic Racing, expected in around two months.

The video, which was later posted to the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account, teases the following features:

  • Performance modifications, which allow players to swap out their vehicle’s parts to modify performance
  • Horns, which allow players to change the sound of their vehicle’s horn
  • Paints, which allow players to completely change the color of their vehicle
  • Vinyl, which allow players to add a wide range of designs to their vehicle

Of these options, the performance modifications appear to be the most robust as they allow players to change the feel of their vehicle. As with many other kart racers, vehicles in Team Sonic Racing have RPG-like statistics, such as acceleration, boost, and defense. Changes to the vehicle’s performance modifications enhance these.

Team Sonic Racing is set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One on May 21, 2019, following a recent delay.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
