Ever since we had the chance to spend some time with The Falconeer and its developer, Tomas Sala, in the early part of 2020, we have had high hopes for this glorious looking acrobatic aerial dogfighter. And now the breathtaking world of The Falconeer is open for discovery thanks to the launch on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
Available to purchase and download right now on the Xbox family of devices – Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S – along with that of PC via Steam, The Falconeer brings together some of the most intense dogfighting with stunning acrobatic aerial combat and a glorious open world that is rich with fantastical creatures.

Priced at £24.99 The Falconeer whisks us off to the world of The Great Ursee, before upping the mystery and delivering intrigue with a unique tale full of immersion, sounds, and dogfights.

With the power of Xbox Series X|S behind it, it may well deliver too.
