NAMCO Bandai Games
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.
I couldn’t pass up a chance to try this out. In the demo you can control a helicopter or a fighter jet. First I tried out the helicopter, the battle takes place in a city. You assist other troops on the ground. Targets include regular guys with rocket launchers, anti-aircraft guns, trucks & tanks. When you are close enough you can lock onto a target and use your mounted machine guns or 2 different types of missiles in this demo. Sometimes when you take out a target you get a nice quick cut scene of the destruction then right back into action. Near the end of the demo you get to take on a few enemy helicopters. Then you finish the demo off with taking out a bridge with supply trucks on it.
As if this game didn’t already look awesome, the newest Assault Horizon trailer still focuses a bit on cinematics and storyline with a few gameplay pieces thrown in, but what it shows is downright amazing. The game comes out in October, and I will most likely be picking that bad boy up. Be sure to check the rest of this article for the video (as we’ll be doing that with videos until after E3 to help make sure the site doesn’t get overloaded).
