Putting gamers in the cockpit of the most advanced war planes ever developed, ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown delivers a fierce air combat experience through photorealistic visuals, intense dog-fighting action, a multitude of authentic and futuristic aircraft to fly and an immersive storyline
Leveraging the power of the newest generation gaming consoles, ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown will blow players away with the evolution of its graphics engine. Beautifully rendered cloud-filled skies and highly detailed cityscapes enhance the sense of unparalleled speed and set the stage for the most engaging aerial battles in the franchise’s storied 20 year history. ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown will provide an arsenal of ultra-modern super weapons and formidable enemies that the series is known for.
The universe of the game is composed of real-world current and near-future weapons but is steeped in Ace Combat lore. Set on the same Usean continent as in Ace Combat 3 and Ace Combat 4, the story revolves around the Second Usean Continental War taking place in the year 2019, following an attack by an army of pilotless 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 against this new threat.
New futuristic superweapons and many planes like the F-14D Super Tomcat and the F-104C Starfighter will be available to take part in the deadly aerial ballet.
To complete their missions, players will need to incorporate the highly detailed scenery into their strategy and deal with meteorological events: lightning strikes or icing may cause system problems and restricted visibility.
