Sonic Forces: digital comic series, details on soundtrack albums

In order to get fans ready for the upcoming release of Sonic Forces, SEGA has prepared a four-part comic series. Scripted by Ian Flynn (that fans of the Sonic should be pretty familiar with), it serves as a prologue to the game. The first Chapter is called “Moment of Truth”, and sees the custom Hero and Chaotix prepare for battle against Dr. Eggman’s robot army.
