'Ace Combat: Assault Horizon' (ALL) Update Dumps Games For Windows Live For Steamworks

by Rainier on Feb. 24, 2014 @ 8:45 a.m. PST

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is not a sequel, but a complete rebirth, a phoenix from the ashes flying at three times the speed of sound built from the ground up, with new technology fueling a passionately realized vision of a game that puts players in the dark heart of the fight like no aerial combat game has done before.

Featuring a story written by New York Times’ bestselling military author, Jim DeFelice, writer of Leopards Kill and Threat Level Black, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon puts players in the shoes of a top gun pilot in an international task force.  The engaging war drama will span real-world locations, such as Dubai and Russia, and incorporate new categories of aircrafts, including super-sonic jets and the introduction of the attack helicopter, door gunner and more.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon brings a new intensity to the beloved flight combat franchise, escalating aerial combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky when destroyed. Players will engage in intense single-player, co-op and online multiplayer combat over real world locations around the globe while dodging skyscrapers and turning enemies into fiery supersonic debris.The gameintroduces a revolutionary close-range assault system that delivers high-speed acrobatics and one-on-one encounters to make dogfights more tense and exciting.

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon - Enhanced Edition features controls and graphics that have been optimized specifically for PC users. The PC version will include many of the DLC items released on the console versions of the game. Players will have immediate access to seven additional aircrafts and numerous aircraft skins as well as skills and maps. The multiplayer portion of the game will feature support through Games for Windows from Microsoft. The game will be available for purchase via Steam.
