Up until now, most VR gaming fans probably wouldn't have listed falconry among the activities they're most interested in pursuing within a video game, but that may change after seeing what the team at Outerloop Games has been cooking up. Their latest game is titled Falcon Age, and it's described by the game's creative director Chandana Ekanayake as a "first-person falcon-hunting adventure."
In a post made over on the PlayStation.blog, Ekanayake details how players will assume the role of Ara, the protagonist of Falcon Age, who has "been wrongfully thrown in jail for a minor infraction" by the ruined planet's mechanical invaders. As she's serving her sentence, she comes to befriend a young falcon who helps her escape from bondage. Together, Ara and the falcon "set off on an adventure to help the resistance reclaim their freedom and drive off invaders."
Ekanayake stated that Falcon Age has been specifically designed with the PlayStation VR HMD and PlayStation Move controllers in mind, though players will also be able to enjoy the game using Sony DualShock 4 controllers using traditional first-person-style controls.
We don't know too much else about Falcon Age for now, but Outerloop Games will surely be giving players more details in the coming months. However, PAX West attendees will be able to get a look at some fresh Falcon Age gameplay by stopping by booth #660. Other than that, players and VR fans can expect Falcon Age to soar onto the PS4 sometime in 2019.
