Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a batch of new screenshots of the upcoming game Ace Combat 7: Skies Uknown.
The screenshots focus on the recently-revealed multiplayer mode, which includes both team deathmatch and battle royale rulesets.
In Ace Combat 7’s multiplayer you can use MRP (Military Result Points) in the Aircraft Tree to unlock planes, parts, and special weapons. Some of those parts can only be used in multiplayer and can be used to customize your warbird. You can also use emblems and skins that you unlocked in single player.
In the battle royale mode, eight players will compete for the highest score. It’s a free-for-all mode, and if you destroy the AI aces flying around the map you can get a bonus.
Team deathmatch is four vs. four. Your team accrues points by shooting down enemy aircraft or dealing damage. When a team reaches a set amount of points, they win.
Players who score high will receive from one to three stars. The more stars you have, the more points you award if you get shot down. You can decide whether to take a risk by attacking capable pilots or play it safe by steering clear from them.
The weather conditions that can be found in single player are also active in Ace Combat 7’s multiplayer, including rain, lightning strikes, and currents.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more videos, you can also enjoy a recent trailer focusing on the A-10C Thunderbolt II, another starring the Mig-31 Foxhound, one more showing off the F/A-18F Super Hornet, another showcasing the Eurofighter Typhoon and the first focusing on the F-15C Eagle.
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown releases in Japan for PS4 and Xbox One on Jan. 17, 2019. It’ll come to North America and Europe on Jan. 18. A PC version will follow on Feb. 1.
