Ace Combat: Assault Horizon – Close-Range Assault Gameplay


Get a closer look at the “Close-Range Assault” mode and hover over some dizzying one-on-one encounters as Namco Bandai reveals a new gameplay footage from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. The 10-minute flythrough shows off the exhilarating maneuvering, spot-on targeting, hovering attacks and other wicked-cool features that you’ll soon get to try when Assault Horizon hits your local store’s shelves, this fall. To be exact, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will be released on October 11th in North America and October 14th in Europe.

“Ace Combat is a beloved franchise and we’re excited to take the series into a whole new direction with more visceral and fast-paced action,” said Kazutoki Kono, Producer and Executive Director at Namco Bandia Games Inc., in the previous press release. “Players around the world will find an adventure that will keep them glued to the edge of their seat. They’ll feel their adrenaline pumping with every bullet, every explosion and every near-miss escape.”

    Sure it seems rather realistic, but an over the shoulder view on a Fighter isn’t my cup of tea. Watching that video I could imagine a person getting dizzy playing that more then an hour. I mean it’s like BIG SHIP keeps moving in your face. Hell I hope they have a Cockpit option for those who want to play.

    O I guess that fixes some problems, but I still HATE that over the shoulder on this game.

    This game should be a lot of fun. I’ll rent it first, just to be cautious.
