Who would have thought falcons would be humanity’s greatest asset?
Falconry is a form of sport hunting where the hunter uses a trained hawk to take down prey. Normally this prey consists of other birds, small mammals and other equally sized animals. But what about an army of invading robots?
Created by Outerloop Games and coming out April 9 for PlayStation 4, “Falcon Age” is a first-person action-adventure game where the player takes on the role of a falcon hunter named Ara.
As Ara, you must hunt to survive and fight an army of robots that have decimated your world, and along the way, regain her people’s lost culture.
The adventure starts off with Ara in jail, awaiting her fate. There, she befriends a young falcon, and they eventually escape together. Afterward, they join a resistance movement against the robotic overlords to take back their home.
