Rumor: Ace Combat 7 to be Announced at Playstation Experience 2015

AceCombatInfinity

An interesting bit of news arose recently regarding a potential Ace Combat sequel.

Some Japanese fans did some datamining (via Dualshockers) of Ace Combat Infinity , and found several references to some Ace Combat 7 emblems, as well as message saying that the game was announced at PlayStation Experience 2015.

This message was meant to be shown after the announcement, but the fact that it’s there might be proof that we’ll be getting a true Ace Combat sequel.

We’ll know for sure soon enough during PlayStation Experience, which is going down on December 5th to the 6th.

    I would love an Current Gen Ace Combat. I’d have hoped they’d have released one on Vita, but we all know how quickly everyone abandoned the (possibly best ever) handheld. If this comes true, I can finally stop playing Ace Combat Joint Assault to get my fix.

    Yeah man, they totally learnt from their mistake of making a game set in the real world with a shitty campaign by making a new game set in the real world with a shitty campaign. Wait…

    Set in the real world yes, however the campaign was basically taking bit and pieces from other AC titles and molding it together with a few tweaks here and there. On another note there was no need include AC:AH’s real world setting for why it’s was horrid, simply saying shitty writing would’ve been enough.

    It will suck undoubtedly, just like the last one. Namco is obsessed with broadening the series’ user base to try to capture COD/Battlefield(front) players. They’ll just try a different gimmick to capture the same casuals.

    And yet Infinity’s campaign was shit precisely because of that, you can barely even call it an actual story rather than just “AC’s greatest hits”, especially given that it’s entirely unfinished when they abandoned it after stage 8.

    AH has plenty of problems with it but the setting is very much one of the big ones. They decided to give it a real world setting and thus by trying to make it realistic they killed it having any superweapons or any story that wasn’t “oh shit, the Russians are the bad guys!”.

    As for the actual gameplay, Infinity is obviously an improvement, particularly in how well the planes control, and the available but unintrusive casual control scheme, but the game itself is grind-focused to the point of insanity. Endgame planes literally costing millions of credits (of which you can at best get ~400,000 at once through a 3x sortie on a special mission III version) just to buy, and then even more to upgrade, and of course first you have to spend absurd amounts of fuel on researching them. Plus the events with stupidly low drop rates in order to milk every cent they can from the people buying fuel.
    Of course, if you didn’t buy the campaign ticket you’d never get to play it either, given how expensive each mission is to buy with credits.
