'The Falconeer' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch, PS4 And PS5 As Warrior Edition - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on May 19, 2021 @ 9:03 a.m. PDT

The Falconeer is an ocean-world fantasy aerial combat RPG that combines classic dog fighting mechanics and acrobatic twists and turns with an awe-inspiring open environment and bestiary of fantastic enemies in land, sea, and air.

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.

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.
