Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Celebrates its 3rd Anniversary With a Free Update

Ace Combat 7 DLC

Fancy some more Ace Combat 7? To celebrate the aerial actioner’s third anniversary, Bandai Namco have released a chunk of new content.

Sure, it isn’t a sim in the same way that Microsoft Flight Simulator is (though it’s more realistic than, say Sega’s Afterburner). But it is an awful lot of fun; as we noted in our review, “Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s moment-to-moment gameplay is simply ace.”

Now, this new content drop could give you a reason to dive right back into this aerial dogfight-em-up. There are no new VR missions, which may disappoint PSVR players, but there’s still a respectable amount of extras on offer. Here’s what you can get your hands oni:

  • 14 new skins, including the long-awaited Razgriz Squadron and Wardog Squadron skins, now available for the F-14A Tomcat, a playable aircraft added to the TOP GUN: Maverick Aircraft Set.
  • The Wardog Squadron skin for the F-14D Super Tomcat, six skins reprinted from Ace Combat 3, four European aircraft skins and a luminous skin for the XFA-27 have been added to this update.
  • 17 new emblems including an ACE COMBAT 7 3rd Anniversary emblem, three Nuggets emblems and 13 THE [email protected] SEASON Collaboration emblems.

Hang on.. Top Gun? Yes – to commorate the release of the second Top Gun movie, Top Gun: Maverick, the game received DLC that included the F-14A Tomcat. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some Firefox 40th anniversary content but there’s no news as yet.

You can get a taste of the new content by watching the above trailer. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with VR support on PlayStation 4.
