Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is set to return to the Usean continent in which the story revolves around the second Usean Continental War, following an attack by an army of unmanned jets. Players will find themselves part of the Penitentiary Unit, a military force formed entirely of criminals, and therefore disposable, who have been tasked with defending the skies against this new and terrifying threat. The game will feature new weapons and flight controls, allowing for a wider range of tactics, new futuristic superweapons and planes like the sturdy A-10C Thunderbolt II, as well as multipurpose fighter F-35C and high-performance aircraft Rafale M. The game is slated for February 1, 2019.
