It’s Sonic Frontiers release day, and Sega has some advice for people that picked up certain editions of the game or plan to. The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account warned players that have the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game to install the included Sonic Frontiers DLC before starting a new game. Otherwise, the included DLC items might not be activated.
Here’s the tweet:
Hey everyone! Quick notes ahead of Frontiers' launch:
• If you purchased the Digital Deluxe, please install the DLC before starting a new game
• DLC content will not be valid if installed after the tutorial area
• Ensure you have the most recent patch before installing DLC

Sega instructed players to install the Sonic Frontiers DLC included in the Digital Deluxe Edition before starting. If a player installs the add-ons after leaving the tutorial area, the items won’t be included in their game. Additionally, it suggests players install the most recent patch prior to installing DLC.
A follow-up tweet noted that the instructions above apply only to the items included in the Digital Deluxe Edition. Future Sonic Frontiers DLC, such as the Sonic Adventure 2 shoes and Monster Hunter DLC, will not suffer such restrictions.
The Digital Deluxe edition of Sonic Frontiers includes an Explorer’s Treasure box that contains the following in-game items:
- Amy’s Memory Tokens
- A Portal Gear
- Chaos Emerald Vault Keys
- Additional Gloves and Shoes for Sonic
Outside of the game, buyers are also entitled to a Digital Art Book and a Digital Mini Soundtrack with 25 tracks of music. Sega advised Xbox buyers to check the app section of the Xbox Store to download the Digital Art Book if they don’t see it in their library.
Sonic Frontiers is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A “Showdown” launch trailer is also out now.
