Finally, after countless teasers, first looks and previews, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is finally set to take-off on January 18th, 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on February 1st, 2019 for PC via Steam.
Now into its 18th entry in the long-running franchise, the game is set on the same Usean continent as in Ace Combat 3 and 4. The story revolves around the Second Usean Continental War, following an attack by an army of pilotless jets. Players will be part of a military force formed entirely out of criminals and are tasked with defending against this new threat.
Players can also look forward to a whole slew of new futuristic superweapons and planes such as the A-10C Thunderbolt II, multipurpose fighter F-35C and the high-performance Rafale M.
Ace Combat 7 Brand Director, Kazutoki Kono shared: “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, and we’ll see you in the skies soon!”
Looks like we still have to wait a little longer for its imminent release, which makes us wonder if the developers will retain some of the Singapore-inspired cityscape in the final game.
