The Falconeer Takes Flight Next Year

Wired Productions announces The Falconeer will be shown off for the first time this week at X019 in London, and that this action/RPG featuring aerial mounts will take off next year for Windows and Xbox One. Word is: "Created by independent developer Tomas Sala, The Falconeer combines classic aerial dogfighting mechanics and acrobatic twists and turns, with an awe-inspiring open environment and bestiary of fantastic enemies in land, sea, and air." A new X019 Announcement Trailer celebrates the news with a look at gameplay in swanky 21:9 aspect ratio. Here's more:
Set above The Great Ursee, a mystical world drowning in the corruption of the swollen oceans, players will take their armed aerial mounts in third person to the skies as a “Falconeer,” an airborne and agile warrior equipped with devastating ranged weaponry. Your mission as a Falconeer will be what you make it – be it the noble cause or the life of a rogue - each player experience will be unique as they explore the bleak and hauntingly beautiful world, filled with wonderous locations and warmongering rival factions vying for the mysterious secrets hidden at the Ursee's unfathomable depths.

“We’re excited for fans to experience The Falconeer, a true gem that will set the bar for what indie developers can offer games,” said Leo Zullo. “From the beginning, we’ve been enamoured with this breath-taking aerial combat RPG, and are proud to be able to work collaboratively with Tomas, whose passion and talents can be seen in this beautiful and mesmerizing game.”

Fans of aerial combat will be treated to a fluid and eye-catching open world experience. Majestic mounts control fluidly and freely with graceful flight, just as their bird of prey counterparts, giving players a sense of freedom and awe whilst being truly immersed in the Ursee’s simultaneously epic and hypnotic soundscape.

The Falconeer will be taking centre stage at X019 with the world’s first playable demo of the unique arcade game. More news will be landing later next year as Wired Productions shares more through official announcements and community channels on the game.
