Ace Combat Assault Horizon DLC Announced

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Namco Bandai has announced some free and premium DLC for their upcoming dog-fighter Ace Combat Assault Horizon. The developer is promising lots of post-launch DLC for the title, but they have only provided details for the first packs that will be arriving.

Back in March, we announced the details of a competition to design a custom skin for the F-15C fighter plane. The winning skin was "Death Rider", designed by Liu Chi Chun. As promised, this skin will be made available as free DLC to players on launch day. Here are some screenshots of the rather impressive design:

The first premium DLC pack will include a new multiplayer map and three new aircraft. Players will be able to fly over Tokyo in the Su-37 Terminator and Tornado GR.4, as well as the fictional aircraft ASF-X Shinden II. Here is a trailer showing the DLC in action:
