Ahead of Gamescom this year, publisher Wired Productions released their slate of playable titles for the big gaming event to be held at the Koelmnesse in Germany. Two big games set for release for consoles were already announced: Close to the Sun, first released for PC earlier this year, and Deliver Us To The Moon, an Early Access game on Steam. In addition to this, the publisher also noted that they were bringing three more unannounced titles to the event, and just last week Wired Productions announced the first of these games preemptively.

Titled Falconeer, this open-world aerial combat RPG set in a fantasy realm is a joint collaboration between publisher Wired Productions and solo developer Tomas Sala. It will be hitting PCs sometime in 2020, and will debut for the first time at Gamescom this year, playable by the press. Check out a teaser trailer for The Falconeer below to see what it’s all about.

The Falconeer is an “ocean-world” aerial combat RPG, set in a rather expansive and immersive fantasy world. It combines classic dog-fighting mechanics, as well as the genre’s electrifying acrobatic twists and turns with an amazing open-world environment to create a very unique and exciting title. Players can take on a variety of fantasy enemies in either land, sea, or air combat, which means that there may be more than meets the eye to the trailer initially shown.

The game is set above a place called The Great Ursee, where players will take their armed aerial mounts to fight in the skies as a Falconeer, who is described as an “airborne warrior equipped with devastating ranged weaponry.” Fighting is only half of it, though, as players will also take to exploring this bleak, yet beautiful landscaped filled with many wonders, as well as various rival factions all vying for control of the mysterious secrets hidden in the depths of the Ursee.

Overall, it looks stunning, and there’s something very distinct about its art direction. I would like to see how well it does for the gameplay parts, though, and let’s hope it lives up to the same potential once more information has been released during its run at Gamescom.

The Falconeer will be released on PC sometime in 2020.
