A lot of new details about the game have been revealed by Bandai Namco today.
We’re still not sure when exactly Ace Combat 7 is set to release, but some new details about the game’s story and setting along with some screenshots were just revealed by Bandai Namco.
First of all, we learn that the developers have been hard at work in trying to simulate natural weather conditions which includes weather effects like rainfall, fog, and more. It also looks like they have gone to a great extent to depict the skies realistically as it is based on principles of physics. This also means that we’ll be seeing some really cool sky colors and sunsets, depending on where we view it from.
As for the game’s story, it is set in 2019 when the Second Continental War breaks out between Osea and Erusea. The hero of the story is part of the Osean Self-Defense Air Force. The relations between the nation had been getting strained for a while until Erusea finally declared war. Osea also makes things worse by accidentally attacking the capital of Erusea, which is frowned upon by the public since this is an age where urban areas aren’t targeted during wars.
We also learn about the Orbital Elevator which is the largest international project since Ulysses. This was built by the Osean government and its allies in an effort to supply electricity to countries using a method of solar power generation. The ISEV was established just to handle the construction of the Orbital Elevator.
