Bogey Approaching – New Ace Combat 7 Trailer

Posted on 22 Aug 2017

Along with the new trailer comes some new story details too – revealed in the trailer it seems the spark of the new conflict in the strangereal universe will be Osea forcing the construction of their giant space elevator on Erusean territory which prompts the Erusean princess to declare war. We’ve seen plenty out of Osea in previous Ace Combat games set in the strangereal but not a huge amount out of Erusea apart from a bit of side lore from Ace Combat 4 and 6 where we know the Ulysses asteroid’s debris caused massive damage to the nation so that’s likely to play a part in the story too.

Along with story information we also get a good look at a wide variety of planes, none of which seem to be new to the series (which to be fair would be very hard to do since most jet fighters have been featured in several entries) but we do get plenty of footage of the new experimental plane which seems to be an AI piloted Su-37.

Also of interest is a small glimpse of a laser weapon that looks like it’s usable by the player and a flyby from a small plane, possibly a drone, that bears a striking resemblance to the series fictional R-101 Delphinus (Infinity universe, not the Electrosphere version) with swings swept forwards.
