Bandai Namco Entertainment has revealed Ace Combat 7, the latest installment in the long-running Ace Combat plane combat game series. Coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4, the game is still relatively early in development and no release window has been announced. The first title in the series to come to current generation consoles, the game will also feature PlayStation VR functionality.
Coming for the first time to new gen consoles of course means you will experience the best Ace Combat game ever,” wrote Gaetan Gireme, Bandai Namco’s Community Manager, in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “Stunning photorealistic graphics, beautifully rendered skies and detailed cityscapes, we are setting the stage for the most engaging aerial battles. Let’s take off together in this new trailer. And yes, everything has been captured with the in-game engine!”
“Ace Combat 7 will take the elements the series is famous for to a whole new level. Backed up by the powerful Unreal Engine 4, this will be THE dogfighting game every fans need. We are using all the know-how we developed on the Ace Combat franchise with the power of next gen consoles.”
“Be ready to experience photorealistic visuals and lightning effects and an evolving and adapting ecosystem which will dictate the flow of battle. Our trueSKY technology will astound you, we are sure of that! And if you need even more, you will be able to immerse yourself in exclusive features developed specifically for PlayStation VR!”
Ace Combat 7 will be the 19th game in the long running series, which began in arcades all the way back in 1992.
