A Fleet Of New Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Screenshots

Project Aces are pushing for a realistic story in Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. The plot, Namco Bandai reveal, is penned by New York Times Best Seller and military author, Jim DeFelice. They promise an engaging war drama, taking place in real locations across the world.


That fits right in with their other focus, which is to emphasize the destruction involved in dogfights. One way they’re addressing this is through the over-the-wing camera, and encouraging players to use machine guns more. Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is slated for release on October 11th on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    Oh man, the game looks even better than Ace Combat 6! I cannot wait, I love the Ace Combat games!! Skies filled with dog fights and explosions, your wingmen calling out missile launches like “Garuda 2, Fox 1!”.

    Ahh, so excited for this game. :D

      You just reminded me of the ending to Independence Day where that crazy trailer park guy flew his fighter plane straight into the Alien ship’s death ray cannon cause his missles were jammed

      • Code

        Actually I thought he flew into the alien’s death canon, because he’s Randy Quaid, being played by Randy Quaid.

          Well if you put it that way then yes

  • A New York Times bestselling author? That makes me even more excited for the game. Hopefully voice acting is on point and the plot extravagantly enthralling. Im signed on for day 1.

      Umm just saying but i prefer Japanese story writer done the story.(Why don’t they try to ask Tomino to make the story as they are from same company isn’t it?)

  • I hope it retains that Ace Combat feel even with a more realistic story and real-world locations. The fictional setting and events were some of the main draws for me.

    Still, the game is absolutely gorgeous.

    Hopefully the game has some fantasy themes.

    I’m liking the over the wing camera angle; makes for more dramatic dog fights. The previous games were cool but I never got a sense of speed or danger from them since most of the time I was just looking for far away enemies and locking on target fire away ok next one yawn

  • Man…why haven’t I played one of these yet? I know I’m missing out on something great.

    Hey that’s Dubai…

  • When I play Aerial Dogfighting games i twist my head and turn as if i’m there pulling G-turns myself, judge me how you will!
