Ace Combat is back, and the new game is the reply for those who said that the series had lost its touch and will never be as good as it used to be. Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown was first released on January 18, 2019, for PlayStation 4, and Xbox One has been a great comeback for the series. Watching the rising demands, the game was also released for windows users on February 1, 2019.

Ace Combat 7 is an arcade game that follows a combat fight simulation system. The players have to take to the skies in their fighter jets. You have to defeat your enemies and keep pushing forward in the ongoing battle between Osea and Erusea.

Bandai Namco Entertainment did a fabulous job in making this great comeback, and the fans who lost hope have been again given this new masterpiece. After the release of the previous game that was Ace Combat Infinity, the fans were highly disappointed. No new gamers tried the game after the devastating reviews, and only a handful of the old hardcore fans bothered to try it out.

On its 20th anniversary, the game showed everyone that it still has a lot of potential left and a long way to go with a lot to show. Despite some failures, the newest addition to the series has been welcomed by the fans with open arms.
