This Week at Wired Falconeer

This Week At Wired - The Falconeer struck a pose!

Hello again Wired fans, and welcome to your weekly roundup of all the busy happenings in the world of Wired!

After the breackneck pace of all of the antics last week, we used this week as a bit of a breather to indulge in some artistic flair, and get some fantastic competitions up and running!

New Falconeer Artwork Soars Online!

We are now less than a month away from The Falconeer launch, and coming off the back of the incredibly successful Beta we decided to mark the occasion with a sweet new piece of artwork, showcasing the epic scale and atmosphere of the Ursee!

It's a bit of a stunner isn't it!

Of course the second we revealed it to the world, requests came in for high-res mobile, and logo free versions for people to plaster across their devices.

Being the generous type that we are we decided to oblige, so jumping into the Twitter thread below will find a treasure trove of fly new artwork for you, no matter what device you use!

Learning about the Ursee

We already shared the fantastic interviews with Unity and Major Nelson last week were the Falconeer Dev himself Tomas Sala was making the rounds and spreading the good word of the bird!

(If you haven't caught up on those then we'd really recommend catching last weeks update here

But did you know that last week whilst the rest of you were out exploring the Ursee and providing your awesome feedback, we were streaming and recording some QA gameplay session on Steam?

If you missed them then luckily for you we kept them all recorded - and stuck them online to watch at your own leisure!

If you're aching for a little extra Ursee time before launch - get yourself over to our Youtube channel and indulge!
