Well, I guess it's cool.

Riders of Icarus is a game that’s all about riding things. Really, it’s right there in the title; it’s not called “Walkers of Icarus” or “Pedestrians of Icarus.” And the game’s next major update is bringing with it plenty of new mounts to the game, giving players all new options about what to saddle up and ride along. But what are the best of the bunch? What do those mounts do? Is all of this a distraction from the steady atrophy of your walking muscles?

Chin up, because we’ve got a gallery of 10 new mounts just below, along with a rundown of the abilities for each of them. That should serve to give you an excellent overview of what you can be riding when the update goes live, where you can grab it, and perhaps most importantly, why you want to ride it instead of your current busted old mount. What more could you ask for?
