[Update]: Interestingly enough, a second exploration-focused game where you get to fly around with the help of a bird of prey has been released this same week - The Pathless!

If you're in the mood for soaring across the stormy skies atop a giant warbird, you might want to keep an eye on The Falconeer. As you might expect given the premise, The Falconeer is all about exploring the world, squaring off against a variety of mythical beasts in aerial dogfights, and naturally, upgrading and improving your mighty falcon with new abilities and tricks.

Since The Falconeer is one of those games where the atmosphere is half of the experience, allow me to stop babbling and instead show you one of the recent trailers. Have a gander, it'll give you a pretty good idea of what to expect from The Falconeer:

Judging by the reviews so far, and from what I've seen during the most recent beta, I do believe The Falconeer will be pretty fun to mess around with. That said, I am slightly worried that its approach to combat and exploration will get somewhat repetitive after a while. So if you're looking to play it completely safe, I'd advise waiting a week and then checking out some of the user reviews - just to see how it holds up after the honeymoon period is over.

Whatever the case may be, The Falconeer will be landing onto PC and Xbox this November 10th. You can learn more about it, as well as check out some of the other previews, over at the official website. Enjoy!
