Ace Combat: Assault Horizon isn't your typical Ace Combat game. "For us, this is a rebirth of the Ace Combat series, and a chance for us to take the series in a completely new direction," said Kazutoki Kono, Producer at Project Aces, said last year.

That direction is populated with games like Battlefield and Modern Warfare. There are shades of both in Assault Horizon—this isn't a bad thing! If this E3 trailer is any indication, the game could be a welcome addition to the sand-covered contemporary war games.
