Bandai Namco announced today that Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will be getting a new DLC pack called "Experimental Aircraft". There's no real story content or anything super significant toward improving the game in this DLC as there has been in previous packs, this is simply all about giving you new planes to mess around with up in the skies. You'll be getting three planes this time around in the form of the F-15 S/MTD (The Boeing Company), the F-16XL (Lockheed Martin Corporation), and the FB-22 Strike Raptor (Lockheed Martin Corporation). All three experimental aircraft feature enhanced performance and attack capabilities beyond what most of the planes on your roster contain, which means there's a higher risk of flying them. In addition to these three new additions, the developers have also thrown in new skins and emblems of enemy pilots and rival units from previous chapters of the past, which is about the extent of the bonus content with this latest DLC package. The DLC pack will arrive sometime in Spring 2021.
Putting gamers in the cockpit of the most advanced war planes ever developed, Ace Combat 7 delivers the fiercest air combat experience ever created through photorealistic visuals, intense dog-fighting action, a multitude of authentic and futuristic aircraft to fly, an immersive storyline, and even virtual reality! Leveraging the power of the newest generation gaming consoles, Ace Combat 7 will blow players away with the evolution of its graphics engine. Beautifully rendered cloud-filled skies and highly detailed cityscapes enhance the sense of unparalleled speed and set the stage for the most engaging aerial battles in the franchise's storied 20 year history. Ace Combat 7 will provide an arsenal of ultra-modern super weapons and formidable enemies that the series is known for.
