While Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has been announced for the PS4, in addition to offering VR support for PSVR while there has been no indication of the game launching on multiple platforms, many assumed the game would eventually be confirmed as a PS4 exclusive, however, that is not the case.
Today Bandai Namco updated us that ACE COMBAT 7: Skies Unknown will in fact be coming to Xbox One and STEAM. Our follow up question was whether all three platforms would receive a simultaneous launch. At the moment we are still waiting for an update on our question.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is in development at Project Aces, a team based in Tokyo, Japan and utilizing Unreal Engine 4 with a unique and brand new dynamic feature. The game 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 is expected to 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 the 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.
