Bandai Namco has launched a new website which tells us what to expect from the game.
We’ve been treated to quite a few details about Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown so far, but we can expect to know even more about the game soon, when it makes an appearance at Gamescom, where Bandai Namco will reveal the official release date. Ahead of this event, though, Bandai Namco has opened up a new website, which provides information about different aspects of the game.
The website provides the following message, which basically describes the game:
“After eleven years, the latest numbered game has finally appeared!
The Ace Combat series boasts more than 14 million shipments. The latest game Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is finally coming. Speaking of the Ace Combat series, the player becomes an ace pilot, with the refreshing feeling of flying freely in 360 degrees immersed in graphics recreating the real sky, while defeating the enemies with his judgment and skill. It’s a series pioneering the flight shooting genre allowing to enjoy the pleasure of overcoming difficulties and a feeling of achievement.
“Project Aces,” that has worked on the whole series, continues to be in charge of development of this game which is the latest of the series. With the theme of “Sky Innovation” they have depicted the most attractive game of the 20 year-long histories of the series with the vast clouds filling the sky in three dimensions and the skillfully depicted landscape.
In the “three-dimensional field of the sky,” you can feel the sensation of speed and the clouds hitting the airframe, enjoying the feeling of actually reaching for the sky. Also, employing tactics inside and outside the clouds, above and below, you can enjoy exciting aerial battles with increased strategy.”
Furthermore, there are even more details you can find out about the game across different sections such as ‘World’, ‘Aircraft’, ‘Features’, and more. In the website, you can also find the timeline for the different games in the series. Just to state the obvious, the years correspond to in-game events, and not the years that the games were released in. After all, Ace Combat 3’s events unfold in the year 2040.
In the website, there’s also some cover art provided which shows the game’s copyright notice for 2019. This does not necessarily mean that the game has been delayed, though, since this isn’t the final cover. Furthermore, everywhere else on the website, the game’s release is mentioned to be this year. Anyway, we’ll just have wait for the official confirmation of the release date at Gamescom. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is set to release for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. You can check out screenshots of the timeline and cover art below.
