BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment's strong support for the PC continues with the future release of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown. And like Tekken 7 and the upcoming SOULCALIBUR VI, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has been built in Unreal Engine 4, ensuring a wide variety of options and native support for 4K. But before we get into all that, check out our exclusive first play 4K gameplay, captured by NVIDIA in a work-in-progress development build on a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, that’s combined with a fresh new developer interview about the PC version of the game:

In our gameplay footage, settings are on max, with options for Anti-Aliasing, Bloom, Effects, Motion Blur, Post-Processing, Screen Space Reflections, and Shadows all cranked up. Additionally, there's a built-in option for Resolution Scaling, enabling you to play at 4K quality on a 1920x1080 monitor; the option to uncap the framerate; and plenty of settings for Flight Systems, controllers, flight sticks, keyboard and mouse control, and key remapping. In other words, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown has everything you need to tailor the experience to your liking.

If you lack a high-flying GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment has prepared a set of Recommended system requirements, showing you the hardware required to play Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown at max settings at 1920x1080, at 60 FPS or more.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown Minimum System Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core Intel Core i3-7100, or equivalent
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Legacy GPU: GeForce GTX 750 Ti, or equivalent)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions)
  • HDD: 60GB free space

  • RAM: 8GB
  • OS: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 (64-bit versions)
  • HDD: 60GB free space
