Ace Combat 7 delivers the fiercest air combat experience ever through photorealistic visuals, intense dog-fighting action, a multitude of authentic and futuristic aircraft to fly, and an immersive storyline.

Developed utilizing Unreal Engine 4 and trueSKY technology, Ace Combat 7 applies the latest evolution of its graphics engine in conjunction with the power of the latest generation of gaming consoles and PCs to create immersive aerial battlefields.

Fully rendered clouds fill the skies while highly detailed cityscapes enhance the sense of supersonic speed, setting the stage for highly exhilarating aerial battles. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will provide an arsenal of ultra-modern and near-future super weapons for players to wield, while presenting formidable enemies for pilots to vanquish in the air.

Aces who have proven their aerial combat prowess in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s campaign mode can take their dogfighting skills online for furious online multiplayer battles.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown also marks the return of Sunao Katabuchi as the lead writer behind the fictional storyline that players will experience in the game. Previously, Sunao Katabuchi wrote the storylines for both Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies and Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War.

The Project ACES development team has added a “cherry on top” of Ace Combat 7 in the form of VR missions utilizing the power of PlayStation VR, exclusively for the PS4.

Tokyo Game Show 2018 (TGS) marks a point on our campaign map for a large update on VR details. We’re excited to treat TGS show attendees to more details about our VR missions which have been designed to place players in the cock pit of some of the fiercest jet fighters ever flown in military history. The VR goodness doesn’t end there as additional VR capabilities are announced at TGS 2018.
