The Falconeer is a dogfighting recreation set above an ocean world, however as an alternative of jets or spaceships peppering one another with rockets and lasers, it is huge birds. The Gamescom teaser above provides us a quick take a look at some sleek avian fight, however the developer has additionally posted some extra detailed footage.
Gameplay from final 12 months pits the falcon and its little human rider towards a dragon—oh pricey—in the midst of a storm. Actually I would moderately be safely caught inside a cockpit.
Together with combating dragons and different airborne menaces, there are little islands and factors of curiosity to discover, peppering the massive ocean, and a number of factions squabbling over some secrets and techniques hidden within the deep. I do not suppose birds are nice at deep sea diving.
It guarantees “basic dogfighting mechanics”, although I am unsure how they translate to driving a fowl. Judging by the trailer, the birds are much more agile than jets, pulling off acrobatic manoeuvres and extremely sharp turns that you just’re most likely not going to search out in additional sensible dogfighters.
As a falconeer, you may work your manner up from squire to legend, taking up jobs and quests for varied benefactors or simply serving to out the little individuals. It seems like there’s some gentle RPG stuff, too, and you’ll improve your massive fowl, unlock new skills and discover extra weapons.
If hurtling via the sky on the again of a large falcon appears like your factor, you may want to attend till subsequent 12 months.
