Description
Fly like a bird in this aerial fantasy adventure. Combines realistic simulation of flapping-wing flight with tactical air combat, spectacular magical abilities, hordes of diverse airborne monsters and a gripping tale of a world under siege. Play it your way; build your team of four avian-mage characters for the story mode, test your skill in varied flight challenges or just experience bird flight in free roaming mode.

* Unique twin-stick control scheme - one for each wing - gives an umissable feeling of flying on your own wings (mouse+keyboard also supported).
* 16 story missions; take to the skies as the bird shifters of the Eyrie, fighting to save Windhaven from an extradimensional invasion. Build alliances, discover dark secrets and search for a way to avoid extinction.
* 24 stand-alone flying challenges including racing, thermal soaring, target shooting and survival.
* Varied weather and many expansive environments, including free roaming mode with hidden treasures to find.
* Online multiplayer; various co-operative, competitive and free flight modes.

* Switch characters mid-battle, select and combine abilities to break up and destroy enemy formations.
* Take part in naval and airship battles, dogfight with vulture cultists and activate magical defence obelisks to turn the tide.
* Optional accurate aerodynamic model in free flight; see if you can really soar like an eagle or dive like a falcon.
* Eight flyable species (hawk, raven, swan, eagle, falcon, owl, albatross, vulture) with more to come as free DLC
* Includes four hours of beautiful music, memorable characters with full voice acting and hand-drawn cutscenes.
* Achievements, online leaderboards, gallery and unlockable bonuses.
* More features including realistic raptor hunting mode planned as free DLC.

Windhaven is voiced in English and subtitled in English, French and German.

The game is in the final stages of production (media integration and quality assurance). Please note that the trailer and screenshot pack are from the Xbox 360 version; the PC version is still under development and will have several graphics upgrades.

Now I have the Oculus Rift DK2, I can only see the advantages of it for a game such as Windhaven. I'd love to see Rift support... really really really would love. :)

I'm really interested in a game where you fly a creature and can do some cool arial combat. I hope this does well. Though, it needs a lot more visual polish before I'd be interested in buying.

Right... if you downloaded the demo and it won't start, change your pc's date to somewhere in April 2013. Apparently the demo was only intended to start for a few months after release and included a timeout. Changing the date allows it to run; I've just played the game again. :)
