We’re uncertain if this includes gameplay-related changes, but given there’s no mention of it, we’re assuming these are just for skins. That said, we are checking the game and once we find out any changes, we’ll update the post. If you spot any changes not included in the notes above, let us know what they are down in the comments.
Released last year in January for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, Ace Combat 7: Skies Unkown has been well received critically.
