Ace Combat 7
Released: 2019 — API: DirectX 11 — Engine: Unreal Engine 4
Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is the latest entry to the long line of air combat simulators by Bandai Namco involving fictional political rivalries and planes, originally designed for the console and its thumb sticks. You play as fighter pilot "Trigger", leading a series of air force missions that include dogfights in patrol and bombing runs, with cutscenes between missions driving the story forward. The franchise's detachment from real-world politics and events makes it fun since it's entirely focused on the objective of air combat.
Ace Combat 7 is the first title in the franchise based on Unreal Engine 4 and takes advantage of DirectX 11. It's moderately taxing on your machine.
