Global Challenge Debuts for Sonic Dash: Unlock Shadow the Hedgehog for Free!

Sonic Dash

Get ready for the ultimate challenge and unlock Shadow the Hedgehog for free!

Today marks the start of the first Sonic Dash global challenge. But what does this involve and how can you take part? Well most importantly it’s about challenging you, the Sonic Dash community, to work together to accomplish something monumental that you couldn’t do alone. You are being tasked to work together and run 100 laps around the world (or 2,490,100.55 miles for those counting!). Now that might sound tiring, but all you need to do is boot up Sonic Dash and contribute by making as many runs as you can, and run as far as you can. Everyone’s cumulative distance will contribute towards this mammoth target and it’s going to take everybody working together to successfully complete the challenge in time.

You can find the very stylish progress screen seen in the artwork above, by navigating to the ‘Goals’ section on the main menu of Sonic Dash. This will be the place to see how much distance has been covered and give the inspiration you need to make one more run!

This target needs to be reached by August 5th or you’ll miss out on all the prizes that will be rewarded along the way and most importantly the grand prize at the end of the challenge. That’s right if the goal is reached in time, everyone who has contributed will be gifted Shadow the Hedgehog as a playable character for free! Anyone who didn’t will unfortunately miss out on this very special reward, so make sure you get dashing and see how far you can run!

Sonic Dash is a free to play infinite running title, created exclusively for mobile platforms by Sega’s internal studio Hardlight. Chris Southall, Hardlight’s studio head, had this to say about the newest addition to the game:

“The reaction to Sonic Dash has been epic and we wanted to do something to engage and reward the community as a whole.  The result is the Sonic Dash Global Challenge!  It’s a chance for everyone to work together to win some cool prizes.  This is just one of many cool new features we have added since launch so there has never been a better time to get dashing!”

For all the behind scenes hijinx and a peak behind the curtain, make sure to like Hardlight on Facebook and follow @HLGames on Twitter.

Grab Sonic Dash here at the iTunes store.
