While the game’s main campaign won’t be playable on PSVR, a new trailer gives us a fresh glimpse of what Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s Playstation VR mode will look like.
Ace Combat is a long-running franchise of jet combat games published by Bandai Namco. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, announced way back in 2015, won’t launch until some time in 2018, but it’s the first title in the franchise to offer VR support. Unfortunately, as we learned earlier this year, the game’s main campaign won’t be playable with PSVR, but there will be a separate PSVR mode said to offer “several hours of VR gameplay.”
A new trailer for the game (above) shows what the PSVR mode will look like, including multiple camera views for aircraft carrier takeoff sequences, and a fully realized cockpit mode where players will engage air and ground targets. The scope of the PlayStation VR mode for Ace Combat 7 isn’t clear just yet, but we’re hoping that some multiplayer combat will be possible in VR.
