Bandai Namco has published a new trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, confirming that the Original Aircraft DLC pack will be released on October 28, 2020. This pack will add three new aircraft, a lot of new emblems, and aircraft skins from Ace Combat Zero: The Belkan War.
The new trailer shows the three fictional aircraft flying in action while also confirming the special weapons available for each of them. The CFA-44 Nosferatu will come with its signature ADMM (All Direction Multi-Purpose Missile) from Ace Combat 6, along with an EML (Electromagnetic Launcher) railgun and IEWS (Integrated Electronic Warfare System). The XFA-27’s ability to launch 4 missiles in Ace Combat 2 is replicated with the MSTM (Multiple-Launch Standard Missile) loadout; it can also equip SOD (Stand-Off Dispenser) bombs and IEWS. The ASF-X Shinden II can be equipped with RKT (Rocket Launcher), LASM (Long-range Air-to-Ship Missile), and the 6AAM that can target up to 6 aerial targets at once.
The DLC pack will also add 20 more emblems, starting with two 25th Anniversary Nugget emblems with Phoenix and Trigger’s emblems on each respective helmets. Other than low-vis emblems of Golem, Gargoyle, Skeleton, and Cyclops squadrons, it will also add emblems of Ghost and Kei Nagase. The pack will even include more emblems from past Ace Combat games:
- Warwolf and Akula from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon
- Scarface and Phoenix from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy
- Antares and Varcolac from Ace Combat: Joint Assault
- Reaper, Reaper (with ribbon), Viper, Omega, Ridgebacks, and Butterfly Master from Ace Combat Infinity
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is immediately available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The flight shooter game also just received a new update patch, which adds a Casual -Easy- difficulty level for newcomers to get into the game more easily. Japan will receive an exclusive Premium Edition physical re-release that includes serial codes for both the season pass and this new DLC set on November 5, 2020.
