Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is coming to PC - System Requirements Revealed

Bandai Namco has officially revealed Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown on Steam, revealing that the game will be released on February 1st, 2019, two weeks after the release of the PS4/Xbox One versions. 

The PC version of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will be released on PC via Valve's Steam platform for 64-bit Windows operating systems, utilising the DirectX 11 API to support Windows 7, 8/8.1 and 10. 

The VR version of Ace Combat 7 will be exclusive to the game's PlayStation version, though it is possible that this mode will come to SteamVR in the future after a period of timed exclusivity. 

On consoles, Ace Combat 7 is designed to run with an unlocked framerate, maxing out at 60FPS, with early PS4 footage showing framerates of between 35 and 60 FPS. Optimisations leading up to launch could allow this game to run at a steady 60FPS on consoles, though for now, an unlocked framerate seems to be more probable. 

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is coming to PC - System Requirements Revealed  

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown features some low-end system requirements for a modern PC release, though this can be attributed to the game's high framerate target on console hardware. Bandai Namco requires a system with at least a dual-core i3-7100, though Intel's higher-end Quad-core i7-7500 is recommended. 

On the graphics side, Ace Combat 7 required a graphics card with at least 2GB of VRAM and equivalent or greater performance than a Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 Ti, recommending Nvidia's more powerful GTX 1060 (3GB). At this time we do not know the settings or framerate targets that these hardware configurations aim for. 

MINIMUM:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7/8/8.1/10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: Intel Core i3-7100
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Ti(2GB)
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 60 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 11 sound card

RECOMMENDED:

Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
OS: Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10 (64-bit OS required)
Processor: Intel Core i5-7500
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (3GB)
DirectX: Version 11
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Storage: 60 GB available space
Sound Card: DirectX 11 sound card

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown will release on February 2nd on PC, not on January 28th (as other sites have reported).

Oh cool!
I've not played an ace combat game since PS1. Have a feeling these would be much better mouse and keyboard. Next they need to do the urban/desert/jungle strike remaster/remakeQuote

While I agree with the mouse being better for aiming and the like, I can't beat using a flight controller stick for these lol. SOOO much better then a keyboard/mouse and better then a controller as well (although less so).

I still would use a controller for this type of game simply for the better turning ability that a 360 analog joystick gives over a keyboard - but that is me; and of course if my flight stick is acting up.

Everyone one plays how they want to anyway Quote

The one thing this is missing is VR to which having it support PSVR all the more annoying.


Still I'm sold though, release window is perfect for playing this before MetroQuote
