We’ve known about The Falconeer from Wired Productions and Tomas Sala for many a month, but today we find out that by boasting a minimum 4k 60 frames per second and HDR, along with utilising the power of Smart Delivery, we’ll be seeing this stunning open world air combat RPG soar onto Xbox Series X at day one.
Becoming available as a day one purchase on Xbox Series X is a pretty big deal, particularly as the one man creator behind it has seen it become a passion over recent times. Combining classic dog-fighting mechanics, with a breathtaking open-world environment and a cornucopia of fantastical enemies, The Falconeer will support a minimum of 4K resolution at 60 frames per second; and when combined with a glorious High Dynamic Range, will find it dazzling your eyes. It’s just the icing on the cake that Smart Delivery will also be enabled to ensure you can play The Falconeer on your favourite Xbox console.
Launching on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC, you can view what makes The Falconeer so interesting by taking in the trailer below. ‘The Path’ is the latest trailer for the game, giving an incredible birds-eye view of proceedings.
If you’re liking what you are seeing then the Falconeer Day One Edition is also available to pre-order at all good retailers and includes a custom reversible sleeve, lenticular card, sticker sheet, a digital download of the Official Game Soundtrack and a digital Game Guide. Retailing for £34.99 / $39.99 / €39.99, The Falconeer Day One Edition is available to pre-order now at wired.gg/FalconeerDayOne
“Having worked closely with the Xbox team over the past year, The Falconeer has found a natural home on the Series X,” said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions. “It’s a technological marvel that, coupled with Tomas’ passion and genius, constantly astounds us. With Smart Delivery, we’re ensuring fans get the best version of The Falconeer on any Xbox at no extra cost.”
“Working on the Xbox Series X has been a terrific experience,” said Tomas Sala, the sole developer of The Falconeer. “My focus – my passion – is to create worlds that aren’t just epic landscapes and backdrops but dangerous and haunting places, where the action ties you to the fabric of these worlds. Time spent with the Xbox Series X has allowed me to harness the creative and technical power to take the player on a wondrous journey into such worlds, straight from my imagination, free from limitations.”
