GamesCom Trailer: Ace Combat Assault Horizon

Here’s the trailer for Ace Combat Assault Horizon.

I thought the last game in the series, “Fires of Liberation,” provided a decent blend of simulator-style play (as in the HUD) and arcade-style gaming (jets can carry dozens of missiles). I also enjoyed the visuals, but thought it was weird that players had to “buy” aircraft.

Assault Horizon will trade in its predecessor’s fictional settings for air combat above real world places, and Washington, D.C. is clearly visible in the new trailer.
