Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a beloved classic, a game that cemented Sonic as a major series. And now, if you’ve never played it before, you can get the game for free–it’s currently discounted by 100% on Steam.
The game is totally free until October 19, meaning that you have a full week to pick up Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and keep it forever. This is the Sonic game that first introduced Tails, Sonic’s twin-tailed fox friend, with the two teaming up to defeat Dr. Robotnik yet again.
The game is free to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Sega, which was founded in 1960 to manufacture slot machines. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 originally released in 1992 for the Sega Genesis. This free copy is, essentially, a port of the original, so don’t expect any remixing on par with Sonic Mania. There’s a huge Sega sale happening on Steam right now to celebrate the anniversary; check out all the bargains here.
