Ace Combat Assault Horizon DLC In-Flight Menu Trailer

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon featured downloadable content (DLC) that added to the base game's contents. These DLCs included aircraft, skins, skills, and multiplayer maps.

On PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the game's DLCs were separated into "compatibility packs" depending on their release date. Online matches allowed players to set a maximum compatibility pack. For example, players could not use content purchased in DLC Pack 2 in an online match using a maximum of Pack 1. To obtain the Compatibility Packs themselves, players could either download them for free or purchase DLC content. The packs were cumulative; obtaining Compatibility Pack 4 allowed any content in DLC Packs 1–4 to be used.

On PC, the game was released as the "Enhanced Edition". Almost all of the game's DLC was included in the Enhanced Edition for free, and this version of the game did not feature Compatibility Packs, allowing all DLC to be used in all matches. However, the Tornado GR.4 and the F-14D "VF-1J & VF-1S Valkyrie" were not included in the PC Enhanced Edition.

All prices below are listed in U.S. dollars (PlayStation) and Microsoft Points (Xbox). All of the DLCs are no longer available for purchase, and all of the Compatibility Packs are no longer available for download.
