Sonic Generations: Unleashed Project Mod Released

unleashedproject-logo

We first reported on the Unleashed Project over a year ago, when Sonic Retro community members (and all-around beautiful people) Dario FF, Twilightzoney, and Chimera revealed the earliest footage of their experiments with porting stages from Sonic Unleashed into the PC version of Sonic Generations. Today, thanks to the incredible efforts of Dario and his team, they’ve released the first completed version of the project, including all eight major daytime stages from the original Unleashed ported to Generations, along with a redesigned hub world and reworked level progression.

Now you can play through all of the best parts of Unleashed without having to endure the suffering caused by Werehog fatigue and medal-hunting. Plus, you can enjoy the beautiful art direction of each stage in full 1080p at 60 frames per second (provided your computer can handle it – my Phenom II X4 cries during Jungle Joyride), and many of the game’s lower-resolution textures have been recreated in higher quality so you can get the most out of your PC’s graphics card. Of course, the stages also benefit from improvements and changes Generations made over its predecessor, such as tighter controls and the addition of customizable skills.

Be sure to check out the trailer after the break, complete with an orgasmic remix of the Unleashed final boss theme by Retro musician Falk, known for his work on fan games such as Sonic Before the Sequel and After the Sequel (and who also did the hub world remixes of the Unleashed stage themes for this project). You should also head to the project’s ModDB page, where you can find links to download the mod for yourself. Finally, a tremendous thanks to the Unleashed Project team for all the hard work they’ve put in over the past year to get this polished up and ready for release. This project is a stellar example of the kind of awesome stuff we love to see from the Retro community.

    Good news, I guess… Not a big fan of Sonic Unleashed myself, maybe sometime we’ll get Sonic Colors’ or Sonic 2006’s levels ported, kudos to Dario for the hard work though!

      Gorila5 has partially ported Crisis City, Paraxade0’s Kingdom Valley port is looking just a few updates away from release, and SonicHyuga has made good progress on Aquarium Park 1.

    Oh my.

    The framerate is gorgeously high. Seems higher than Unleashed was originally.

      It’s twice as high as Unleashed
      The current generations of game consoles can only handle 30 FPS, that’s one of the main reasons this port was created, to enjoy Sonic Unleashed at 60 FPS

    The second I lose access to the internet for my desktop is when this comes out. I won’t have internet access for my pc for a week.

    Goddamnit.

    It is higher silly. Current gen Sonic games on consoles were capped at 30 fps. But PC ports are higher, up to 60.

    I just tried it out, and I must say I’m impressed. I noticed the ranking was much stricter this time; was that intentional?

    Now this is friggin promising! I wish
    Sega were to do something like this! I would recommend it to get the Pc version! To bad that I only got the Ps3 version.

    FOr some reason all the fangames i’ve been interested in have gotten CandDs. Weird. Hope this one ain’t getting pulled down. Just goes to show that fan made stuff often is better than Official stuff. Most of the time.

    I wonder if the DLC missions will be added later, even though I was never a fan of Unleashed’s heavy emphasis on memorization and reflexes. I can still hope that stages from Colors gets ported.

      Someone else, brainuuuSonic, was porting Colors stages. I think he got the majority of Tropical Resort done.
