Bandai Namco has just announced that Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will be released on the PC via Steam on February 1st, 2019. The PC version will be delayed two weeks from the console release, which is planned for January 18th.
As the press release reads, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is set to return to the Usean continent from ACE COMBAT 3 and ACE COMBAT 4, and its story revolves around the second Usean Continental War, following an attack by an army of unmanned 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 the skies against this new and terrifying threat.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will feature new weapons and flight controls, allowing for a wider range of tactics, new futuristic superweapons and planes like the sturdy A-10C Thunderbolt II, as well as multipurpose fighter F-35C and high-performance aircraft Rafale M.
Kazutoki Kono, Ace Combat 7 Brand Director, said:
“The team and I have been working diligently to produce an experience that will add another action-packed chapter to the ACE COMBAT franchise, but more importantly, be worthy of your time. Thank you all once again for your patience, support and continued enthusiasm, we’ll see you in the skies soon!”
