Ace Combat 7 Played: Professional weather for arcade pilots

Monday, August 28th, 2017 | Gadgets

It's a jammer: we have more and more powerful computers on the desktop, whose processors are fast enough for impressive landscapes, a believably simulated physics, and clever AI opponents. But for years now, there have been no good simulations of the fighter jubilee – the genre of the end of the last millennium had its boom.

With Ace Combat 7, Bandai Namco is now working on a title that shows what a current simulation might look like. The program is based on the Unreal Engine 4 – correspondingly impressive is a flight. At the start of the game, we are hurrying through beautiful cloud fields, water collects on the windscreen, but the risk of icing also threatens.
That sounds like a lot of realism, but Ace Combat 7 has a different concept: it wants to score points despite some authentic elements with as uncomplicated air battles. The start of the aircraft carrier, for example, succeeds us immediately and without any guidance. We just have to give the throttle and at the right moment, pull the analogue stick on the gamepad backwards, already our bird rises into the air.
Also the scenario is based on a somewhat strange mixture of real and false. On the one hand, there are neat looking replicas of real jets such as the Eurofighter Typhoon, F / A-18F (Hornet) or F-14D (Tomcat). On the other hand, the act is about the liberation of a fictitious country, including big-eyed anime characters like in an Asian roll-up game.
Nevertheless, at the Gamescom 2017, the product manager – who had previously trained pilots at the US Air Force – has made every effort to sell the program as a reality. He explained in detail how real combat pilots use a cloud field to disappear from the opponent's radar radar, how dangerous ice clouds are, and that ground fog in emergency situations is quite a camouflage, but the flight is, of course, extremely dangerous.

At the beginning, it was our task, in the third campaign mission with the Eurofighter Typhoon to liberate a space lift and contribute generally to peacekeeping – so the briefing. Then we could still determine the loadout of our jet fighter, a few moments after the launch of the aircraft carrier we were already in the air.

The control on the Playstation 4 is via the gamepad. It was only a few seconds before the first air raid, and a little later we fired the first aiming rockets towards our opponent, and they had escaped in front of their opponents even with daring maneuvers and the help of flares. This complex has not felt that much, but the graphics have a good impression.
Ace Combat 7 is scheduled to be released in 2018 according to current plans – Bandai Namco did not want a more specific date. The game comes for Windows PC, the PS4 and the Xbox One on the market. Owners of a Playstation VR can compete in a virtual reality mode, but we have not tried it.
