Vanguard flying mounts trailer

A stonking great Griffin.

If you go down to the woods today, or to Eurogamer TV, you'll find a feathery new trailer of a Griffin, one of several flying mounts that players can choose from in Vanguard: Saga of Heroes.

The game is another MMORPG, and quite a promising one at that. It's developed by Sigil Games Online, the company founded by Brad McQuaid and Jeff Butler of EverQuest fame. Sony Online Entertainment and Koch Media are both involved, and it's due for release in Q1 2007.

Players will have to be above level 45 to hop on the back of a flying beast and take to the skies of Telon, where they're free to flap around until their heart's content.

It isn't, of course, the first online adventure to announce flying mounts. Let's hope that Sigil has enough tricks up its sleeve to combat the enormous excitement surrounding World of Warcraft's first expansion, Burning Crusade - due on January 16th.

Vanguard: Saga of Heroes is currently in Beta 3 (as of November 2006). For more information head over to the game's website.
