It was rumored for a long time the possible return of the saga ‘Ace Combat’. And considering that the saga was born in PSX, and that also turned 20, many talked about that the title would reach PS4 exclusively.
Then came the PlayStation Experience, and the rumor was confirmed. Not only ‘Ace Combat 7’ became a reality, but also seemed to be exclusive to the console of Sony Interactive Entertainment. And not only that, later also it was confirmed that it would be compatible with PS VR. Finally, for the users of Xbox One and PC (Steam), the game will be cross-platform. This has been confirmed by Bandai Namco.
We know that the title will come out this 2017, but despite today’s announcement, Bandai Namco has not yet given any sort of “approximation” as to the exact launch date.
That, yes, has given us a new trailer that, in addition to showing the graphic subtleties of the Unreal Engine 4, also lets us glimpse many of the keys that we find at the plot level in this seventh installment of the ‘Ace Combat’ franchise.
Now we even know that ‘Sunao Katabuchi’ returns as scriptwriter of this game, having worked on ‘Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies’ and ‘Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War’.
In fact, the producer of the game has insisted on more than one occasion in the fact that if we liked exactly those two games (the 4 and the 5), we will be very comfortable with ‘Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown’. Obviously with a graphic section updated, running the Unreal Engine 4 and a capture of satellite images will delight the lovers of flight.
Weather conditions will change, and urban environments will be very realistic. In addition, we know that it will offer multiplayer (surely online), and that the weapons we will have access will be very futuristic, something that will have to do with the argument, totally fictitious and invented.
And as we talk about the plot, it is interesting to remember that ‘Ace Combat 7’ will narrate the fictional conflict that rages ‘Strangereal’. The reign of ‘Erusea’ has declared war on the federation of ‘Osean’, and therefore, the battle is completely unavoidable.
As you can see in the trailer, which we have already published in Zonared and you can see at the end of this news, a rather important argument is expected, with multiple charismatic characters that add a dramatic or less complex to events. It will be necessary to see if the game has some advantages in PS4, or if on the contrary, the launch date and the bonuses are exactly the same in the three platforms.
