You think Ace Combat 8 is really coming in 2021? Kono said it would be futuristic
All pulse lasers and TLS equipped jets.
If there's Ace Combat 8, I want the futuristic version of F-22.
I just wanna see the Chinese aircraft tree.
2021? I don't think they could really release 8 in such a short amount of time, but it sure would be great! Also, besides futuristic planes, I want it to be set in a country from Strangereal we haven't had before. :c
Unless they bring something different that isn’t something they could just copy paste from ac7, in terms of gameplay, graphics etc, like if they changed the engine or added something totally different. It’s very possible they could pop out another game every six months...
That being said, it would be nice if they did do something completely new/different. I like how they added the cobra maneuver into the game. Stuff like that is nice to see since it shows they’re adding new stuff to the game...
I hope it's events happen in strangereal, in other countries that we haven't heard about yet,
I'm not so sure that I want an AC8 just yet. I'm far more interested in some kind of online co-op experience akin to Infinity (whether it's free-to-play or not) or some kind of exploration into the past on other countries. There's plenty of time periods and conflicts and even countries we have yet to explore. I don't want to get too sci-fi.
The game engine of AC7 is pretty good, so maybe they can use it well and create a new trilogy in a relatively short time, like back in the 2000s. Even if there’s no online mode, I’ll still buy them, just for the fantastic stories in Strangereal.
I hope AC8 would feature the after-war Erusea or Osea, by the way, after all the world was put into “chaos and confusion” after the battle for Farbanti.
What do you think?
