The Falconeer, a game about fantasy air combat, has some big plans for its upcoming beta. For one thing, you can strap on some guns onto a giant bird as you battle against other falconeers. Pretty amazing, right?
It’s a pretty invigorating concept of an aerial combat game, that’s why we’re so excited about it. The Falconeer doesn’t have a release date yet, but the good news is that you have the chance to try out the game via a closed beta.
If you’re interested, you can sign up for the said beta through their designated Discord server. However, the beta won’t be available until October, which will be followed by the official launch sometime the following month.
We also don’t have information yet about what you will find in the beta, although we’re expecting that you will definitely experience flying through the clouds with your ginormous, winged companion.
The developer, Tomas Sala, had an interview with PC Gamer during PAX East, and he gave a sneak peek of the game which you can watch below:
What makes The Falconeer so exciting is the fact that it’s an open-world game and not just something that sends you off to different missions. Given how beautiful the environment appears to be, who wouldn’t want to explore this fictional world?
The game takes place somewhere called the Great Ursee, and it’s basically a drowned land where you can still find the remains of an ancient civilization. There’s so much to discover in The Falconeer – treasure, lost technology, etc. – that you just can’t help but wish you were a tourist The Great Ursee.
That being said, preorders for The Falconeer are now available here.
