Along with a brand new trailer as well as a bunch of beautiful new screenshots, the long awaited release date for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown was finally revealed during this year’s Gamescom and it is coming out sooner than expected! The PS4 and Xbox One version will be available on the 18th of January whilst the PC players will have to wait until the 1st of February, 2019.


The game will follow players that 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 of unmanned jets. To help them take on this threat, there will be new weapons and flight controls, allowing for a wider range of tactics, new futuristic super-weapons and planes like the sturdy A-10C Thunderbolt II, as well as multipurpose fighter F-35C and high-performance aircraft Rafale M.

Kazutoki Kono, Ace Combat 7 Brand Director, said: “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!”

Lastly, some limited edition Ace Combat 7 flight sticks were also announced, one coming from thrust-master and another from Hori, both made for optimum experience. However, I am thinking these may cost over £100 so it might be cool to look into something like Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas 4.
