Can Namco Bandai win your European pre-ordering heart with a supersonic jet?
Pre-order the European Limited Edition version of Ace Combat Assault Horizon and get the F-4E Phantom II and other attractive things.
Namco Bandai today announced details for the Limited Edition version of Ace Combat Assault Horizon. The air combat sim is due for release in Europe on 14 October 2011, but if you get in early you can get exclusive content, including the F-4E Phantom II fighter-bomber (a virtual version of course), a CD soundtrack and a notepad signed by the development team at Project Aces.
The Limited Edition is available for the same price as the standard version, and it comes packaged in a battle-ready steel case, so it’s perfect for trips into Afghanistan, Iraq and other hostile territories. (Should this apply to you, may we also suggest that you protect your PS3 as well? Ben Heck has a full guide to creating a bomb-proof, portable PS3. You can view it here.) The Limited Edition is only available while stocks last.
Does Ace Combat still generate interest? The series is old, almost two decades old, and it’s been a while since we’ve been excited about an Ace Combat game . Then again, it’s been a while since the last one – Assault Horizon will be the fist PS3 Ace Combat game – and Project Aces’ reboot actually looks very promising.
The development team is going down the arcade route by putting high speed and destruction at the heart of the gameplay. It looks very fast – check out the trailer at the top of the page to see what we mean. It’ll also give you a chance to see the F-4E Phantom II in action. Afterwards, why not check out our gallery of F-4E screenshots (below)? You could find your new desktop background.
