Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown gets cleared for takeoff as confirmed release dates revealed

-

Ah Gamescom, how we love your trailers, how we love your new games, how we love your release dates. Today, with the masses descending on Germany, a fully confirmed release date has been revealed for the hotly anticipated Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

But when will we be getting hands on and taking to the skies with Bandai Namco’s latest? Well, Xbox One and PS4 players will be able to jump into the cockpit from the 18th January 2019, with PC players getting ready to take on the bogeys from 1st Feb.

Set to return to the Usean continent found in Ace Combat 3 and Ace Combat 4, the tale behind 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.

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!”

It’s not just the release date that Bandai have let us in on though and they are also taking this opportunity to announce two new Ace Combat branded flight sticks:

  • T.Flight Hotas 4 ACE COMBAT® 7: SKIES UNKNOWN Edition by Thrustmaster for Xbox One and PlayStation®4.
  • ACE COMBAT 7 HOTAS Flight Stick for PlayStation®4 from HORI.

Are you gearing up to take to the skies in January? Let us know in the comments below!

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
