ace combat 7 top gun maverick

The big noise may be coming out of the Microsoft Flight Simulator door, with the free Top Gun: Maverick content that is included in there. But if you want to be seen as a proper fighter pilot, there’s only one game for it – Ace Combat 7. Thank god then that Top Gun has hit that too. 

The Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – Top Gun: Maverick (yep, silly long name aside) content is without doubt something you’ll want to involve yourself in. Priced at £15.99, this is no little free offering and instead adds a host of Top Gun related goodies to the game. 

  • You’ll need Ace Combat 7 to hand in order to enjoy it – and lets be honest, if you’re a pilot, you’ll have that already – but then adds in six different aircraft, nicknames and emblems. 

It’s the Aircraft Set itself which holds the joy, with the F-14A Tomcat, F/A-18E Super Hornet, 5th Gen Fighter, DarkStar and more included. It’s probably best if we leave the finer details to Bandai…

– Playable Aircraft: F-14A Tomcat A large carrier-based fighter that replaced the F-4 in handling fleet defense. Its striking twin engines and variable-sweep wings set it apart from other aircraft. Its nickname is “Tomcat”. This aircraft can equip the LAAM, SAAM, or SFFS as its special weapon. Includes 6 skins (inc. specials).

– Playable Aircraft: F-14A Tomcat | Top Gun: Maverick A special aircraft based on the F-14A. Deadly at any range. This aircraft can equip the LAAM, SAAM, or HPAA as its special weapon. Features 8 skins from Top Gun, including Maverick and Iceman skins. This special aircraft is part of a collaboration with the movie Top Gun: Maverick.

– Playable Aircraft: F/A-18E Super Hornet The latest single-seat variant in the F/A-18 series. Like the F-type, its nickname is “Super Hornet.” This aircraft can equip the HCAA, 4AGM, or LAGM as its special weapon. Includes 6 skins (inc. specials).

– Playable Aircraft: F/A-18E Super Hornet | Top Gun: Maverick A special Aircraft based on the F/A-18E. Possesses well-balanced maneuverability. This aircraft can equip the HCAA, HVAA, or GPB as its special weapon. Includes 6 skins (inc. specials). This special aircraft is part of a collaboration with the movie Top Gun: Maverick.

– Playable Aircraft: 5th Gen Fighter | Top Gun: Maverick A 5th-generation fighter with superb versatility. It is highly maneuverable, and can be fitted with a variety of parts. This aircraft can equip the 4AAM, HCAA, or LACM as its special weapon. Includes 6 skins (inc. specials). This special aircraft is part of a collaboration with the movie Top Gun: Maverick.

– Playable Aircraft: DarkStar A supersonic stealth fighter with extraordinary high-speed flight capabilities that set it apart from other aircraft. This aircraft can equip the SASM, XSDB, or PLSL as its special weapon. Includes 6 skins (inc. specials). This special aircraft is part of a collaboration with the movie Top Gun: Maverick.

Further are a host of Collaboration Emblems – VF-1, VFA-213, Phoenix and a couple of logos from Top Gun: Maverick alongside eight character emblems – Maverick, Phoenix, Hangman, Payback, Fanboy, Rooster, Bob, and Coyote. 

There are also Collaboration Nicknames to enjoy too – yeah, Goose is in. 

There’s a chance that what is included here in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – Top Gun: Maverick  trumps that of Flight Sim and whilst you will have to pay for the privlege of this one, we feel the price is about right when you consider the content to hype ratio. 

If you don’t already own Ace Combat 7, then there are a couple of other Top Gun: Maverick themed packs too. The full Edition will cost you £64.99 (discounted to £25.99), including the game and the Top Gun content, whilst the Top Gun: Maverick Ultimate Edition for £84.99 (discounted to £33.99) adds the Season Pass and some tunes for good measure. 

Go get em from the Xbox Store using the bold links above. You’ll find it all on PlayStation and PC too.
