New Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown trailer released; Skill trees, customization, and VR

Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe released a new trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Uknown that features a bunch of new aircraft customization options. The video shows off the new aircraft tree, which seems to look similar to a skill tree found in many games you’d see today, such as RPGs and shooters.

The F-140 fighter jet demos being purchased using AC7‘s in-game currency. Then the jet was shown in action firing off the 8AAM air-to-air missiles that were purchased in the aircraft tree. The AC-130 was also purchased in the trailer and shows off the vast amount of customization options for weapons. Everything from choosing a jet, missile types, and body/arm styles for the fighter jet. Then, some skin emblems are shown that can be unlocked by completing some challenges- without the need for microtransactions!

Ace Combat 7: Skies Uknown will include a free copy of a previous Ace Combat game depending on the console you buy it on. The game also has a VR mode that was delayed for an announcement, but has now been confirmed for the game.

The game will release for PS4 and Xbox One on January 18 and February 1st for PC via Steam.
