Falcon Age is an upcoming PSVR game in which you take control of and give direction to a beautiful falcon that sits atop your wrist. Today, during PlayStation’s State of Play stream we learned that the release date has been officially set for just a couple of weeks away on April 9th, 2019.
In our hands-on from last year, we loved the interactions:
The degree to which Falcon Age goes to make you feel protective of your bird really can’t be overstated. It’s got a certain amount of personality, your character is vocal about her affection for it, and again, you can make it wear tiny hats. The rest of the game in the PAX West demo was pretty straightforward stuff where you gathered raw materials for crafting and assaulted an enemy base full of robots, but the real meat of Falcon Age, from my experience, with it is in the bond it’s trying to create between you and your virtual bird pal.
We continue to be impressed with Falcon Age each and every time we see it, as evidenced by the great trailer linked above. The interesting bit will be seeing how the game balances the more intense moments of combat alongside the more serene and relaxing bird interactions. For our money, the latter certainly seems the most compelling so hopefully it’s paced well.
We should be learning more about Falcon Age very soon and we’ll keep you posted on our thoughts about the game once we get the chance to go hands-on again. Let us know what you think down in the comments below!
