As Gamescom 2018 gets started in Germany, plenty of gamers are getting a peek at what's to come from publishers over the coming months. For fans of the Ace Combat series, the biggest news is that the next entry in the franchise, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown, is now has a release date: January 18, 2019.

Alongside the release date announcement, Bandai Namco also put out a thrilling and dramatic trailer, offering a look at some of the dogfighting action you'll take part in when you take to the skies in January.

  • Wow! Definitely dramatic and the scenes and certain characters remind me of Resident Evil Zero, Metal Gear Solid and more. I was expecting to see a cameo by Albert Wesker. Also...."Can you hear me?......Good."
