The SEGA Blog
confirms the reveleation from yesterday
of plans for a Windows PC edition of Sonic Generations
, their platformer sequel, announcing that this will use Steamworks:
Itís been the best-kept secret* in gaming this year, but weíre delighted to (finally!) confirm that Sonic Generations will be released on PC and available via SEGAís partners for PC digital download in November this year. Sonic Generations is the ultimate celebration of 20 years of Sonic the Hedgehog and sees SEGAís iconic mascot racing through a brand new adventure as both the much loved classic 1991 character, and the modern day video game hero he has become today.
Sonic Generations for PC digital includes Steamworks features such as Steam Cloud, which allows save files to be stored on Steamís servers so you can resume your game progress from any PC. As with the other console platforms, Sonic Generations will be available to play in full stereoscopic 3D and will contain Achievements and online leaderboards. The PC version will also support resolutions up to 1080p.
Sonic Generations will be available via PC digital download as well as Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 on November 1st in North America and November 4th in Europe. There will also be a boxed version of the PC version available only in Europe later in November.
