We waited more than a decade for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown and it was totally worth it, turning out to be one of the best games of 2019 (check out my full review here). It looks like a lot of gamers thought so too, as the sales for the game have already exceeded two million copies worldwide.
The franchise celebrates its 25th anniversary this year in 2020. The first entry in the combat flight simulator series; simply titled Ace Combat, launched for the original PlayStation on 30 June in 1995 in Japan.
Bandai Namco will release a 25th-anniversary update for Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown on 20 August 2020.
The free update will add three aircraft skins from the “U.S. Skin Series.”
The following three skins will be added:
- “Jolly Rogers Skin” for F-14D Super Tomcat
- “Patriot Skin” for F-16C Fighting Falcon
