The Falconeer has come a long way since we previewed it back in September 2020. There was a free DLC titled The Kraken in January 2021. Now, publisher Wired Productions and independent developer Tomas Sala have launched a new premium content pack for the third-person aerial dogfighter. The latest DLC for The Falconeer is called The Hunter. It adds a new class that lets players take flight on the back of a dragon.
One of the most frequent requests from The Falconeer community has been the option to fly on dragons. Naturally, dragons are awesome, so this addition should go down well with players. To saddle up on the new mount, players will need to choose the new Mongres Hunter class. This will give you a ceremonial Ormir to ride – a swift drake with major firepower.
Best of all, the new class and mount are not limited to The Falconeer’s The Hunter DLC. Anyone who owns the base game will be able to fly on a dragon. However, if you want to play all of the new content, you will need to purchase the DLC.
The Hunter becomes the DLC
The Falconeer The Hunter DLC also adds a new way for players to tackle airborne combat encounters. You can now launch Pyro Pots at enemies. These will lock onto your opponents and burn them out of the sky. You can upgrade these fiery projectiles at any of the stores found in settlements around The Great Ursee. See the Pyro Pots in action in the DLC trailer above.
The Hunter DLC isn’t all about flying dragons. It also includes numerous quality of life updates. Many balance adjustments have been rolled out along with improvements around the map. You can also now drop custom waypoints on said map. Plus, the player model has been improved to make photo mode even more impressive.
To enjoy the new content of The Falconeer The Hunter DLC, you will need to own the base game. You can purchase this from Steam or the Microsoft Store for PC. Once you’ve got that, you can pick up The Hunter DLC for the incredibly good price of $1.99 USD.
