"The Falconeer" got some attention in the early days of Xbox Series X.
The video game was a launch title for the Xbox Series X, though it also appeared on the PC at the same time, but now its publisher, Wired Productions, has confirmed the release date for the video game on PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch.
'The Falconeer' PS4, PS5, and Switch Release
"The Falconeer" will be launching on those three platforms on August 25. The version that releases on PS4, PS5, and Switch is called "The Falconeer: Warrior Edition," which includes a massive number of updates, and every DLC pack that has been released for the base game since its debut on Xbox Series X and PC.
"The Falconeer: Warrior Edition" will be launching alongside a new DLC expansion called "The Edge of the World."
The Details are thin, but Wired Productions and developer Thomas Sala did say that the expansion will add new side quests, map locations, a self-contained story, and a myriad of new items to the game.
"The Edge of the World" will be included in "The Falconeer: Warrior Edition," while those on PC and Xbox will be able to buy the DLC separately, according to SlashGear.
It seems like "The Falconeer" will run at 60 frames per second on PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch, but PS5 players will be able to crank the resolution up to 4K too.
The haptic feedback of DualSense will also be available in the PS5 version, and those who buy the game on PlayStation will get the game for both PS4 and PS5 too.
"The Falconeer" is up for pre-order digitally from both the Switch eShop and the PlayStation Store for $29.99 beginning today, as per Push Square.
"The Falconeer: Warrior Edition" will also be getting a retail release, a relative rarity among indie games these days. While the PS4 and PS5 physical edition will cost the same amount as digital copies, there is a bit of a price hike on Switch as retail copies will cost around $34.99.
