Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown reviewed by Mike Epstein on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Also available on PC.
The game takes place in the same fictional universe as the previous numbered games in the series. Following the events of Ace Combat 04 and Ace Combat 5, the Osean Federation brokered peace between the military power of Erusea and the rest of the Usean continent. The International Union Peacekeeping Force (IUPF) was formed to maintain peace across the Usean continent, while former President Vincent Harling orders a space elevator funded off the Erusean coast in order to revitalize the continent’s economy. However, the space elevator creates resentment among the Eruseans, who see it as unnecessary Osean intervention.
