PC and Xbox One Versions Confirmed for Ace Combat 7

Bandai Namco has confirmed PC and Xbox One versions for Ace Combat 7.

The game will now launch across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime later this year. A trailer (shown earlier this year) was also uploaded, but it’s still worth watching.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Bandai Namco:


Developed by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.’s in-house Project Aces team based in Tokyo, Japan and utilizing Unreal Engine™ 4 and trueSKY™ technology, ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown 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.

    But will PC have Oculus/HTC Vive support, like the PS4 has VR support?

    I don’t use this stuff at all, but I’m curious.

  • Mr0303

    I must have missed the original showing of the trailer. It looks really cool. I think a summer release may benefit the game, but it will most like go into the holiday.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    It could be PSVR only for a year like Resident Evil VII, which is the stupidest idea ever.

  • Uncle Ocelot

    More people get to play Ace Combat, I see nothing wrong with this.

  • porkbun

    Assault Horizon sold very very well because it’s on all platforms. There’s no reason for this series to be exclusive.

  • Jack

    Noice

  • NuclearKangaroo

    hopefully this is one of the good ones, so i can see what all the fuss for this series is about

  • DrearierSpider

    Damn, Bamco is slaughtering these PS4 exclusives. Gonna be some salty Sony fanboys out there.

    As an ace combat fan, and the owner of an Oculus Rift and HOTAS.. I’m very ready for this to happen.

    My love for AC far outweighs petty console loyalty!

  • Miguel Angel Opazo Arancibia

    Fucking insta-buy.
    I still play AC:AH in pc sometimes. The story was meh, but it was beautiful to look at and play.
    I missed AC Infinity, but i’ll make sure to play this one.

  • And yet the PS4 version will outsell the PC+Xbone version combined

    What a waste of money.

    Just like Tekken 7 and many others.

  • Audie Bakerson

    Let’s hope there is no Devuno.

  • fnd

    Isn’t Ace Combat 6 exclusive to Xbox 360?

  • InfectedAI

    By the time the year is over the complete edition of the game will be cheap and hopefully have Denuvo removed. So people might as well wait.

  • Travis Touchdown

    I’ve been thinking about getting into this series for a while now. I’m so glad I will get the chance to play it on my Xbox One!

  • Zanard Bell

    More Jap games to the PC. Can’t wait.

  • Zenks ren

    LOL have you seen idiots tweeting to Yoshida and Cerny etc. that they cancelled their preorders over this game or Nier or any game that’s getting simultaneous PC/PS4 releases like the Xtards did with Quantum Break and Titanfall 2? No? Then piss off.

  • Zenks ren

    Inb4 the PC version has shit optimisation and DRM… Oh wait I forgot, games that don’t work are better than games that work in the minds of master failures.

  • DrearierSpider

    You’re certainly butthurt LMFAO.

  • Shinoji

    Because apparently every game on PC is a broken mess.

  • Mir Teiwaz

    Just recently picked up PSVR and am considering getting a flight stick if AC7 supports it. I’m so excited for this game!
