To the relief of many fans Ace Combat 7 for PS VR is in progress. The developers have already announced that the new part is being made for PlayStation VR headset. You’ll be able to try yourself as a pilot in virtual reality which is supposed to give a lot of new opportunities.
Finally gamers have a chance to try themselves as a pilot in a way close to real situations. It’s incredibly important that Project Ace have decided to bring their most popular franchise to virtual reality. There’s a problem however. Along with new features we’re going to get lower graphics. Many VR games tend to be weak when it comes to textures and staff. Unhappily it’s likely to be the case with Ace Combat.
