Ace Combat 7 plot-heavy trailer precedes ‘Anchorhead Raid’ DLC

Special mission gets underway next week

Namco Bandai has released heavy-on-narration, low-on-action trailer for the next DLC mission headed to their dog-fighting flight title Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown.

The trailer preempts Anchorhead Raid, the second special mission headed to the action-packed sequel, following on last month’s Unexpected Visitor DLC. The mini-arc of missions will conclude in November with the release of its final chapter, Ten Million Relief Plan.

Taking the form of a mission briefing, the trailer lays out a plan to hit the Eurusean military gathering in Anchorhead Bay, in a pre-emptive strike designed to weaken their forces, ahead of the upcoming showdown in Farbanti. The stealth sub mega-weapon, The Alicorn is also expected to be in the vicinity, so keep one eye on the ocean lest you become a part of it.


Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
