I think the website video has just been colour corrected to serve as a background better by "orange-ifying" all the colours.  The sky texture is identical, compare the clouds around the sun's glow spot.

 

And personally I prefer the original footage.  The more orangey-sunset is really generic and less interesting.  I far prefer the contrasts of orange down on the ground and light blues/greys/purple in the sky in the gameplay footage.

I really think that the low contrast we got in the first trailer was due to how the footage was captured. Sometimes it happens with capture cards and stuff like that. Anyway, if you play on PC and you prefer more contrast, you can always use ReShade!

This footage might be from a more recent build of the game which means the lighting has been improved and the visuals have been enhanced since the original gameplay reveal.

I really hope this isn't the case, I really like the colours in the gameplay trailer while this orange effect is really ugly imho (and looking at it too much gives me an headache)

Honestly the obnoxious was they're drip feeding us when this game was announced almost a year ago is really annoying and shows unconfidence. Mania had enough brevity to show plenty of gameplay in its damn reveal trailer (with full stage gameplay immediately afterward) while the geniuses at Sonic Team can't even show us more then 30 seconds of gameplay after 8 months.

I honestly did not mind the wait. They let us see that the game was coming, but both Forces and Mania are major Sonic games regardless of how different they may be. It makes sense to squarely focus on just one game at a time so that there's no confusion or oversaturation. I personally felt that teasing the game when and in the way that they did actually showed a lot of confidence. It was different for the franchise, which normally relies on a very formulaic yearly "Spring announcement > E3/Autumn showcase > holiday release" schedule. The early reveal along side a second title was  somewhat bold and actually quite clever I think because it was telling us that Sonic was going to have a powerful presence in 2017 with some lot to look forward to. 

I maintain that the actual problem was choosing to relatively unceremoniously unveil Forces in a relatively low-key way, with little more detail than we could glean from the months-old teaser. They probably are just waiting for a big E3 reveal at this stage, as Nepenthe is guessing. If that is the case though, they really shouldn't have shown off what they have. Name reveal, new character teaser, date of full unveiling. That's what SEGA should have given us.

Not only that, but the whole "Join the Resistance" thing, Takashi Iizuka saying that the 3rd guy's reveal will be "unexpected" and that he "embodies the overall feature of the game" and also the character being kinda "bland" (subjectif, but still) kinda fits with a created character feature.

 

But yeah this is just speculation at this moment, it's better to just wait for E3.

I really hope it's not this, because saying it's an "unexpected" character and revealing it's a character creater or a new one is somewhat... cheating I guess? 

It's unexpected because it's new, literally cannot expect someone that you don't know or doesn't exists. Saying unexpected would be better for a character that already exists in the canon.

If it is new or a CC, I'm calling out that quote as horseshit.

So, if the focus of the stages of this game turns out to really be fusing level tropes (as we have seen city+green and green+sand), which tropes would you like seeing fused?
Keep in mind that I'm not talking about straight up fusing old levels, just tropes (so for example a sand level with an ice one, not sandopolis and icecap).

I'd really love to see an ice and industrial mix, with electricity thrown into the mix.
Or jungle and ice. Or floating and ice.
I really like ice levels so I'd like to see this trope fused with virtually anything lol.

So what about you guys?

I'd like to see another one of those "spooky" levels. You know, the ones that look like Halloween? Maybe it could be mashed with a lava level, I think those would go well enough together. Give it a real underworld vibe.

I'm not sure if this theme would fit in with the rest of Forces, but I'm still not sure what kind of tone Forces will have at this point, so it might.

The tone of the game shouldn't limit what type of level tropes should be in the game...

 

Plus Spook and Lava would go perfect together, those spooks would need to be demon centric, not just general halloween type stuff.

Given the lore I'd think that even outside of industrial themes other tropes would be heavily corrupted by them.

File this under "obviously gonna be fixed but amusing anyway"...

...that there is some serious clipping. Whew. 

haha, reminds me of when City Escape was revealed for Generations and Sonic's shoes were clipping through the ground (which was fixed in time for release):DsPOXgr.jpg

Or good old roof-tree from the very same trailer.
