The upcoming release of Top Gun: Maverick continues to impact video games. We already knew that Microsoft Flight Simulator was going to be entitled to its DLC, we discover that it will be the same with Ace Combat 7.
The publisher Bandai NAMCO made it official via a simple tweet which explains to us that the legend will arrive in Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The game may have been released in 2019, but it can still count on an active community. We also imagine that the possibility of taking yourself for Maverick at the controls of an F-18 (or, the F-14 Tomcats were scrapped a while ago) should motivate people.
It must be said that the film was originally supposed to be released in 2019, which would have been perfect for Team Ace’s aerial combat game. Unfortunately the COVID will have decided otherwise, and the postponements have been linked. If Asobo had to modify its plans with Flight Simulator, there is no doubt that the problem was the same in the case of Ace Combat.
Ace Combat: Maverick
Remember that the film will finally be released on May 25, 2022 in France, and that it therefore seems logical that the marketing campaign resume. On the Ace Combat 7 side, expect a unique device (probably the DarkStar prototype, the SR-72 clone that can be seen at the end of the film’s trailer) and some customization elements. However, the publisher has made no official announcement.
wait and see
Clearly, we still don’t know what the content of this DLC will be, its release date (apart from “spring”) or even its price. Inevitably, all players are crossing their fingers for a free update. It would be all the more pleasant since this is a DLC that promotes a film. In the meantime, we suggest that you take a look at the writing test which is at this address.
Finally, if you have never gotten your hands on Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown before, know that the game is available at low cost. It can be found right now for €17 in the Deluxe version via Steam, or for less than €30 in the boxed version on consoles.
