Falcon Age's Epic exclusivity is ending and it's coming to Steam

Audio player loading…

Outerloop Games' first-person hooter Falcon Age was released exclusively on the Epic store (opens in new tab) a year ago, and will finally be coming to Steam (opens in new tab) on October 8. There's also a Switch version coming, as the trailer above would very much like you to know. 

In Falcon Age you raise and train a pet bird of prey to help take your planet back from robot colonizers, tackling outposts full of drones with your falcon as well as a stun baton. Drones are not the most exciting videogame enemy ever, but between outpost takeovers you can also set your bird to hunt, as well as farming and cooking a variety of snacks for them. They can even be dressed-up with hats and other cosmetics. And yes, you can pat the bird.

Falcon Age will be available for $US20 with a 25% off launch discount when it arrives on Steam (opens in new tab)

Jody's first computer was a Commodore 64, so he remembers having to use a code wheel to play Pool of Radiance. A former music journalist who interviewed everyone from Giorgio Moroder to Trent Reznor, Jody also co-hosted Australia's first radio show about videogames, Zed Games (opens in new tab). He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun (opens in new tab), The Big Issue, GamesRadar (opens in new tab), Zam (opens in new tab), Glixel (opens in new tab), Five Out of Ten Magazine (opens in new tab), and Playboy.com (opens in new tab), whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
