The Project Aces team has built Ace Combat: Assault Horizon from the ground up. With new technology fueling their passionately realized vision of a game, it puts players in the dark heart of the fight like no aerial combat game has done before. “For us, this is a rebirth of the Ace Combat series, and a chance for us to take the series in a completely new direction,”
They weren’t satisfied: they wanted more from the series. They wanted planes that (and this is their wording here) ‘were tore apart limb from limb right in front of your face, spewing their oil lifeblood across the sky.’
“We’re confident that we’re going to create a new kind of action shooting (high-speed and destruction) experience with ACE COMBAT ASSAULT HORIZON, and we’re pouring passion, vision and skill into making a game like no other. We want to bring players closer than ever to the action so they feel the energy surge through them with every shot fired.”
They wanted to scrape the streets and dodge the steel skyscrapers of real world cities at blistering speeds, in an enthralling war drama that spanned the globe with a web of intrigue. They wanted players to pick up the controller and become deadly combat pilots in seconds, pulling off breathtaking kills at impossible speeds, and doing battle online in a multiplayer sky littered with fiery supersonic debris. What they wanted was steel carnage in the sky. So they think they got that one pretty well summed up in the next installment.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is set for release in 2011, so stay tuned for more information.
