Bandai Namco had some big news to share for fans looking forward to Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown with a new release date of January 18, 2019 on PS4 and Xbox One, and February 1, 2019 for PC.
Here’s a new trailer for Gamescom 2018:
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is set to return to the Usean continent from Ace Combat 3 and Ace Combat 4, the story of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown revolves around the second Usean Continental War, following an attack by an army of unmanned jets.
Players will find themselves part of the Penitentiary Unit, a military force formed entirely of criminals, and therefore disposable, who have been tasked with defending the skies against this new and terrifying threat.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will feature new weapons and flight controls, allowing for a wider range of tactics, new futuristic superweapons and planes like the sturdy A-10C Thunderbolt II, as well as multipurpose fighter F-35C and high-performance aircraft Rafale M.
Here’s a quote from brand director Kazutoki Kono:
“The team and I have been working diligently to produce an experience that will add another action-packed chapter to the Ace Combat franchise, but more importantly, be worthy of your time. Thank you all once again for your patience, support and continued enthusiasm, we’ll see you in the skies soon!”
Additionally, Bandai Namco announced two Ace Combat-branded flight sticks, the “T.Flight Hotas 4 Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Edition” for PS4 and Xbox One by Thrustmaster. The other one is by HORI, called Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown HOTAS Flight Stick for PlayStation 4.”
