Top Gun: Maverick is set to hit theaters by the end of the week, and the film has teamed up with Bandai Namco Entertainment for some Top Gun-inspired DLC.
Check out Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s DLC for Top Gun: Maverick:
For the DLC, you get access to planes like the DarkStar, the Super Hornet F/A-18E, the Tomcat F-14A, and a 5th Gen Fighter. You also get skins based on two of Top Gun’s favorite characters, Maverick and Iceman.
With Top Gun: Maverick trying to stay as faithful as it can to the fighter pilot experience, it would only make sense that they would collaborate with a game that’s essentially an air combat simulator. With so much critical praise coming for the movie, I’m sure enthusiasts would want more Maverick content to come to Ace Combat; but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what Bandai comes up with.
Here’s the official synopsis for Top Gun: Maverick:
After more than 30 years of service as one of the Navy’s top aviators, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him. Training a detachment of graduates for a special assignment, Maverick must confront the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demands the ultimate sacrifice from those who choose to fly it.
Top Gun: Maverick comes to theaters on May 27. Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is now available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
