If you love the Ace Combat series as much as I do, you probably know the big smile I had on my face when I got to play a mission of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown today at Gamescom in Cologne.
The mission in question is the sixth of the campaign, titled “Long Day.” Our protagonist and the penal squadron he flies with are stuck acting as decoys to draw attention away from regular forces.
Not only they need to keep fighting regardless of ammunition and odds, but they can’t even use the nearby resupply base.
This is an annihilation-type mission in which you have to score enough points to break a given threshold before time runs out.
Unfortunately, I didn’t get to play (and record) the whole mission because the demo was timed at ten minutes, but I still hope you’ll enjoy the video below.
If you want to see more, you can also check out today’s trailer that also revealed the release date, and the a previous trailer focusing on the story.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will launch on January 18th for PS4 and Xbox One, while PC gamers will have to wait a little longer to February 1st for the release via Steam.
You can already pre-order the game on Amazon.
