We’ve been eagerly awaiting news about Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown‘s PlayStation VR (PSVR) content ever since the game was announced a few years ago. Those hoping they might get a full game’s worth of content out of it might be a little disappointed by today’s news, though.
During a livestream for the game at Gamescom 2018 last week (seen below) a representative of publisher Bandai Namco confirmed that the game’s VR mode, which is exclusive to PS4, will consist of five missions that should last you around three hours. That works out to just over 30 minutes per mission, though it’s often the case that such estimates are stretched out a little, so it could be over even quicker.
Three hours of content actually isn’t too bad by VR standards, though it pales in comparison to the main game’s 21 levels. The VR mode will feature unique content, though, and will let you feel like you’re really sitting in the cockpit of an elite aircraft. We’ve been hands-on with the game a number of times over the past few years (it’s been delayed at multiple points) and we’ve always enjoyed the VR content. It seems like the perfect type of experience for headsets, so we’re still excited to finally check it out.
Look for Ace Combat 7 to kick off 2019 for VR gaming, launching next January 18th.
