Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the pre-order bonuses for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, and old fans of the series like me will be delighted.

And when I mean delighted, I mean that my jaw just visibly dropped in front of Producer Kazutoki Kono who was giving a presentation on this at Bandai Namco’s headquarters in Tokyo.

You can find the full list below.

–    Everyone preordering ACE COMBAT 7 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or via STEAM® will receive the F4-E Phantom II along with additional three aircraft skins.

–      PlayStation 4 players pre-ordering ACE COMBAT 7 will also receive a digital copy of ACE COMBAT 5: THE UNSUNG WAR.

–      Xbox One players pre-ordering ACE COMBAT 7 will also receive a digital copy of ACE COMBAT 6: FIRES OF LIBERATION.

We also get information on the season pass, and on the Deluxe Edition, alongside content and pricing.

Season Pass & Deluxe Edition offers:

–      The ACE COMBAT 7 Season Pass will include three planes, three stages, and a music player in one Season Pass package at $24.99 or sold separately at $4.99 for each item.

–      The ACE COMBAT 7 Deluxe Edition includes the game, Season Pass content, eight emblems, and will be offered at $84.99.

Yes, you read it correctly. If you pre-order the game on PS4 you’ll get Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, which is, in my opinion, the best game of the franchise.

We also get a new trailer, which you can enjoy below.

If you want to see more, you can also check out a recent trailer showcasing the VR mode, the trailer that also revealed the release date, and a previous trailer also focusing on the story. If you prefer gameplay, you can enjoy a recent video, and one I recorded myself at Gamescom 2018.

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. Incidentally, the game won the highest honor among our Gamescom 2018 Awards.

You can already pre-order the game on Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
