I am so hyped for AC7. As long as they don't do that BS they did with AC6 about plane skins being DLC only, then we're golden. The arsenal Bird looks like it's going to be a blast to take on.

Gamescon footage from Germany with commentary from the director. The new AWACS operator sounds like a real a-hole.

I really hope this doesn't come out late into 2018. I don't think I can wait past March.

Confirmed for January 2019. Also, holy poop, Arsenal Bird has active denial systems!

So skreeonking happy to see a release date at last. Not too far off, can't wait to see how big the aircraft list will be, I hope they have some special planes lined up for DLC too.

I'd really love to see the Skygrasper from Gundam Seed be included.

They're going to release aircraft videos until release. They're in break for the holidays, but the next video is on January 28th.

Come on Su-37 Terminator! The best of them.

It'd be really damn nice if they actually made the A-10's gun closer to how it's supposed to be instead of exactly the same as every other plane's gun for once, but I'm not expecting that to happen sadly.

So anyone else gonna talk about how amazing AC7 is? Because the game is face-meltingly fantastic.

Multiplayer is poop, though. Why they didnt incorporate the PVE modes from AC Infinity is beyond me.

Yeah it's pretty great. I think my favorite part was actually DEFENDING Stonehenge. Holy crap that was satisfying.

I haven't even touched the PvP yet, just because I know it's going to be terrible because it was terrible in Infinity. I feel like competitive PvE like Infinity primarily was wouldn't work very well in AC7 either, though. The whole thing with Infinity was that you could level up your planes too, on top of equipping parts to tweak performance. By the time I stopped playing Infinity I was rocking a lv 20 A-10 with like 40 part slots in all three categories. That thing was such a monster and I absolutely loved it. The aircraft in AC7 are much more fixed in their performance, while also having more varied special weapons at their disposal (F-22 has both AA missiles and homing bombs, for example). Infinity also had the whole thing where attacker and fighter aircraft had their damage bonuses and penalties against ground and air targets, which encouraged varied squadron makeup and team play. AC7 doesn't have that mechanic, and I don't see them implementing it for the sake of making competitive PvE work.

New SP missions coming this fall!

That Alicorn looks like a jacked-up combo of Scinfaxi and Aigaion. Can't wait to send it to the bottom of the ocean with my F/A-18F

Ace Combat 7 gets a new update to commemorate the franchise's 25th anniversary.

Nothing special, some special skins from campaign characters, BUT Project Aces hinted at some DLC aircraft as well.

CFA-44 Nosferatu, perhaps? Or the ASF-X Shinden (aka, the only good thing to come out of Assault Horizon)?

I would love to see the Nosferatu come back. Its special weapons were fun. And the Shinden as well. I hope it would return with the black and bronze-ish color scheme available. That was my favorite.

I remember when they were doing a Godzilla related event. Still think it was a missed opportunity to have Toho aircraft for a limited time.

Where exactly are the hints? Their twitter?

I only want the Nosferatu if its special weapons aren't nerfed.
