Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

The pre-order bonuses for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown are now known.

Bandai Namco has announced pre-order goodies and post-release season pass content for upcoming air combat game, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

Players who pre-order the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC will receive three additional aircraft skins, and the F4-E Phantom II fighter to take into combat.

PlayStation 4 owners will also receive a free digital copy of 2004’s Ace Combat Squadron Leader (also known as Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War). Xbox One players will receive a digital copy of the 2007 Xbox 360 exclusive, Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation.

If you have both consoles, it’s worth remembering that the PS4 edition will also include some exclusive PlayStation VR missions.

The Ace Combat 7 Season Pass will include access to three more planes, three brand new stages, and a music player mode.

The Ace Combat 7 Digital Deluxe Edition includes the game, plus all season pass content, eight emblems, and the world-famous 1950’s supersonic jet, the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter.

We jumped into the cockpit at a recent Bandai Namco preview event and pretty much had a blast. Everything you’d want from an Ace Combat game is here, from the overwrought tone to the hilariously fussy intel screens. Most importantly, the action feels accessible for newcomers without sacrificing depth and fidelity expected by long-time fans.

The game is set for reason on January 18, 2019 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and February 1, 2019 for PC via Steam.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
