Release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is scheduled for 2019
A bit of history
Japan is not only the country of the rising sun, but also one of the cradles of the modern gaming industry. More than half a century ago, on July 5, 1950, the company Bandai specializing in the production of toys (conventional, not computer) was founded in Tokyo. And just five years later, on June 1, 1955, in the same place, in Tokyo, the company Namco appeared, which later became a well-known publisher and developer of video games.
For a long time these companies existed in parallel, but in 2006 Bandai was bought by Namco, and their new united company became one of the largest holdings that create and release games. By this time Namco had in its list several dozen games, including Ace Combat.
The first series of Ace Combat was published in 1992. Then it was called Air Combat and was designed for large arcade machines. Since that time, the game has evolved rapidly. Very soon, in 2019, we will see a seventeenth series called Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.
What do we know about the new game?
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is another series of well-known flight simulator. Developers promise players virtual reality support for PS VR: accessory owners will have access to several exclusive missions. In addition, a local multiplayer for two people will be available.
At the moment, not much is known about the new series. It looks like the creators are making not a game, but a secret model of the aircraft.
One thing is certain: the design of the game is at the highest level. In the preview trailer the game looked as if it was completely ready. Spectacular explosions, dynamic chases, multi-layered clouds, mirror helmets of pilots and sun glare – all this is done masterfully. In addition, the game seem to have an exciting plot.
Virtual pilots again participate in battles for their fictional world. This world is very similar to ours, but more advanced from a scientific and technical point of view. For example, there are combat drones, which are brought to the place of battle by huge flying ships.
UAVs are controlled remotely, using a signal transmitted by a huge beacon. The struggle of the two armies is conducted for the control of this lighthouse.
