Counting down to release day on January 18, Bandai Namco revealed another trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, introducing online multiplayer.
Today Bandai Namco showed off new gameplay and a brand new trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The gameplay shows Mission 3, played in an F/A-18 Hornet, while the trailer introduces the game’s multiplayer modes. Both the new gameplay footage and the new trailer were shown during Dengeki PS Live #023’s stream. You can find the gameplay part starting at 1:49:25, and the multiplayer trailer is embedded below.
As a reminder, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has two different multiplayer modes. The first one is Battle Royal, where eight players confront each other and gain points by damaging or shooting down each other. The second mode is Team Deathmatch, where two teams of 4 players confront each other.
Just like in the game’s solo campaign, you can customize your aircraft in multiplayer. You can choose its weapons, parts, skins, and emblems. Environmental hazards such as lightning strikes are also present on online multiplayer. You can read more about both online modes, their rules, and check out screenshots for both in a previous article.
Owners of a PlayStation VR will also be able to enjoy Ace Combat 7‘s VR Mode, which was showcased in a previous trailer. Another trailer, showcasing the game’s opening movie, was released recently. It introduces and expands on the background of Avril Mead, the aircraft specialist handling the player’s crafts’ maintenance and repairs in the game’s story. We’ve covered the trailer in a previous article.
The game’s Japanese PlayStation 4 Collector Edition and its content were also displayed on the stream.
As we get closer and closer to the game’s release date, Bandai Namco is counting down to it, with more and more promotional content being revealed.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown releases on January 18 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will also come to PC on February 1. After nearly a four years long wait since the game’s announcement, it’s only a few days away now. If you’d like to pre-order the game and haven’t yet, you can do so via Amazon.
