Anyone get the feeling that prisoner will be part of your squad? Guessing those planes with markings painted over will be what the player will use in a covert/unofficial squadron, can't wait to see how things turn out

The Protagonist will be Osean, the cut scene story will follow POWs in Erusea testing new tech/weapons. I am calling a wild card - the game will end on a cliff hanger and the story will be a two-parter. I smell a conventional World War setup, after which the corporations gain the military power over nations. A reverse Ace Combat 5 - there's a sequel game instead of a prequel game.

Looking back at these discussions I'm surprised and somewhat glad to see that I'm not the only one that considers 5 more flawed than the other titles on the PS2.

Although my main gripes are mainly the bugs present in the game; hence why I never fly the Rafale M.

The idea of an unofficial squadron with painted out markings sounds plausible. I did read somewhere that the Razgriz would make a return (although from a random source with no actual evidence). Although if you think about it, a group of POWs escaping half way through the game and deciding to resurrect the squadron? Perhaps instructed by a former member?

Somewhat unimaginative but I can dig it.

Maybe AC7's story could be about a conspiracy to pit Osea and Erusea against each other, sorta like what the Grey Men were doing in 5.


Maybe AC7's story is structured in a form similar to 5's: A conspiracy pitting two countries against each other for revenge, just like what the Grey Men were doing in 5.

So it seems that OctoCamo looking thing Mihaly is wearing is some sort of super-advanced G-suit/exoskeleton.

 

You know, for some reason I think there may be EMPs involved in the plot.

They better not do that cliffhanger crap they did in Infinity.

 

Just give us a full game please.

 

Considering the amount of time they're spending on it, they might as well.

I never did consider Infinity's campaign to have ended in a cliffhanger. Isn't that what multiplayer was for? It's literally "Operation Eternal Liberation", meaning that we would constantly fly over the same areas over and over again from an infinite+1 number of enemies.

 

 

Seeing how technology seems to play a big part in this, I would say that this is the build up to the corporate war. By this time, General Resources already exists (from AC6), and while the EASA is still around, they have the potential to be absorbed/rebranded into Neucom in the aftermath. Having Osea, most likely still receiving arms from Grunder/General Resources (Osean government isn't exactly competent based off of AC5, they'll never learn their lesson), fighting the Kingdom of Erusea (which EASA would have direct ties with) would seem to mirror the future corporate war.

 

Throwing this out there, too: ISAF will pop out of nowhere. Maybe. What the heck happened to them? For us to not have heard of anything from this alliance where the best Ace of the series hails from is concerning.

Other than the fact that the OLDS never came into play again, and that red Mobius emblem at the end.

I think the Red Mobius is just a reference to Infinite-111, one of the concepts for AC4's squadron before they went with Mobius.

shill pls go

 

Infinity's campaign was half-baked, and while I think that was the point, it was incredibly lazy of them to do so, and they had enough time and attention out of the game that they could have given it a half-decent ending.

It's not like I was singing praises about the single player (in fact, I was disappointed with the small amount of "missions" prolonged only by ridiculous AI). It just never felt like a cliffhanger for me, is all. It was more like "Oh, that's it? Eh, whatever, I'll just wait [for the next AC game].".
