The last bit of Namco Bandai news for the day—whew!—will come as good news for Ace Combat fans wondering when they’ll be able to bask in some combat flight sim love. Well, wonder no more, as Assault Horizon has received an official release date: October 11.
Featuring a story by New York Times’ bestselling author Jim DeFelice (Leopards Kill, Threat Level Black) and new counter-measures and destructive effects, Assault Horizon will send players on missions in real-world locations solo and with friends in new aircraft as well as in attack helicopters as pilots and door gunners. It’s also said to introduce “a revolutionary close-range assault system that delivers high-speed acrobatics and one-on-one encounters to make dogfights more tense and exciting.” It’s certainly looking sharp.
