Fly the unfriendly skies with Ace Combat 7’s upcoming DLC

Take me on your mighty wings tonight

Bandai Namco has dropped details and a trailer for a batch of DLC content coming to their sky-blazing jet fighter title Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. The new aircraft and missions will be coming as part of the sequel’s season pass.

Now, you’re gonna have to work with me here. What do I know about air-ree-yo-planes? Nothing. Especially ones with lasers and shit. So I’m going to hit you with some cool sounding names right now, and you just go with it. May 22 will bring us the ADF-11F Raven, which I’m reliably informed is “A manned version of the large fighter developed in Erusea. Its ADF-11 nose unit is uniquely equipped with an F-type flight unit designed for combat.” Coming with the ADF-11F is a special UAV weapon, along with some exclusive skins and emblems.

June 26 brings the ADF-01 Falken “A large fighter developed by North Osea Gründer Industries. Representing the culmination of Belka’s military technology, it is highly maneuverable and capable of stealth flight.” The Falken is equipped with a Fuel-Air Explosive Bomb special and will bring further skins and emblems.

Finally, July 31 will add the ADFX-01 Morgan, which is “A large, multi-role, experimental Belkan aircraft later completed by the Allied Forces. Loaded with equipment such as high-output lasers and multi-use air-burst missiles.” Said air-burst missiles are the Morgan’s specialty. Also coming will be – you guessed it – further skins and emblems.

So there you go, three badass sky fighters, all arriving in-game over the next three months. Alongside the planes themselves, three new missions will be also be added, giving players plenty of opportunities to unleash their inner Maverick.

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