Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown appears to be a return to form for the old and glorious franchise.

Today I was finally allowed to put my greedy hands on a build of a campaign mission of the upcoming air combat game Ace Combat 7.

Even better, they allowed me to record the mission for your perusal. Nicely enough, there was no obligation to edit the video or add a voice over this time around, so you get the whole thing with no cuts, and without my heavy Italian accent overstaying its welcome by covering the lovely soundtrack of the game.

The mission is the third of the campaign, titled “Two-Pronged Strategy,” and sees a squadron of Osean fighters face the Erusean Air Force to gain air superiority over  a sector of the battlefield.

You can check the video out below and see how well I did at dodging missiles and putting a few up the enemy’s tailpipe.

Do keep in mind that the game was played on standard PS4, so if you have a PS4 Pro, it’ll look even better. And it already looks gorgeous.

If you want to see more, you can check out the newest trailer and screenshots. You can also enjoy another recent batch of screenshots, and the previous story trailer.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will release in 2018 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
