Namco Bandai Games America has announced that Ace Combat: Assault Horizon for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be released on Tuesday, October 11, 2011 in North America and in Europe on October 14, 2011.
Featuring a story written by New York Times’ bestselling military author, Jim DeFelice, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon puts players in the shoes of a top gun pilot in an international task force. The engaging war drama will span real-world locations, such as Dubai and Russia, and incorporate new categories of aircrafts, including super-sonic jets and the introduction of the attack helicopter, door gunner and more.
“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. “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.”
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon introduces a new close-range assault system that delivers high-speed acrobatics and one-on-one encounters to make dogfights more tense and exciting. Players will engage in combat across the globe, dodging skyscrapers, and turning their enemies into fiery supersonic debris in both single player and online multiplayer.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is the first title in the franchise to appear on current generation of consoles.
