Can you believe it’s been 25 years since the dogfighting exploits of Ace Combat first landed on European shores? Well, take our word on that and prepare to peruse a very special DLC pack for the most recent entry in the series. For a small fee, you can take to the skies in a trio of new aircraft, courtesy of the ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN 25th Anniversary DLC which is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The last time we saw any DLC was almost a year ago, when a new mission arrived for ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN. Now though, we’re able to celebrate the 25 anniversary of the series with three of the original aircraft by purchasing the 25th Anniversary DLC Original Aircraft Series Set. You’ll be able to grab it on the digital stores for the aforementioned platforms, but we’ll stick with the Xbox Store where it’s priced at £9.99. Alternatively, you could buy them separately for £3.99 each, however it’ll cost more to own them all that way.
First up is the ASF-X Shinden II, which is a cutting-edge support fighter that’s built to handle all kinds of situations. For its special weapon, you can equip either the 6AAM, RKT, or LASM. Then there’s the carrier-based stealth fighter, XFA-27, designed for ultimate performance. Choices for the XFA-27’s special weapon are limited to the SOD, MSTM, or IEWS. And finally, it also includes the next-generation carrier-based stealth fighter known as the CFA-44 Nosferatu. This one is ideal for solo raids; especially when equipped with the likes of the ADMM, EML, or IEWS. The trio come kitted out with seven different skins each too.
That’s not quite everything though, because as a result of buying the set, you’ll gain access to 20 emblems and 12 skins as a bonus. It sounds like a cracking deal if you’re still partaking in the intense antics of ACE COMBAT 7: SKIES UNKNOWN. Feel free to get in touch and share your thoughts about this new DLC!
