Bandai Namco has released the opening cutscene to their highly anticipated arcade flight sim Ace Combat 7: Skies unknown! The opening introduces us to one of our new protagonists, Avie, and sets up the theme about the rise of drones taking over the skies rather than skilled pilots. the opening also ends in such a way that I need to play the game NOW! This recent release is a continuation of Bandai Namco's effective strategy to hype the game prior to its January 18 release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
AS a reminder the game is up for pre-order now and gives players access to the F-4E as well as a bonus copy of Ace Combat 5 (PS4 Pre-Order) or Ace Combat 6 (Xbox One Pre-Order). We know that it will take around 50 hours to 100% the entire game and unlock everything. For further Ace Combat 7 coverage you can check out my first impressions of the game from my first playtest back at E3 2017. Check out the opening cinematic above and let us know what you think!
