PAX West 2018 was the second event Project: Lighthouse was able to gain footage of directly from the convention floor. This was made possible after an announcement from Bandai Namco Entertainment America about a demo of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown being available at PAX West 2018 in booth #2323.
On August 27th, 2018, Ace Combat Fan (ACF) had announced that he was going to attend PAX West in Seattle, Washington, United States of America.
Ace Combat Fan has arrived in Seattle, Washington for PAX West. His gameplay checklist has been assembled and is available for view in this blog post and on his Twitter post about the subject. Though the Lighthouse public relations correspondent will focus on checking the items listed, you can be sure that any other information he gathers on the demo or the full game itself will be reported by him as well.
Following our coverage of Gamescom 2018, Project: Lighthouse is pleased to announce that we have a Public Relations Correspondent set to attend PAX West. Originally going on his own, Ace Combat YouTuber Ace Combat Fan has agreed to attend the event on behalf of Project: Lighthouse as well.
The coverage of Gamescom 2018 was a significant step forward for Project: Lighthouse. This event summary of Gamescom also acts as a thank you to all of those that joined us for our coverage and the members of our team that made the coverage and follow on articles possible.
Our coverage of Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown at Gamescom 2018 begins with the first Twitch.tv livestream hosted by Project: Lighthouse. This 23 minute video shows two playthroughs of the demo version of mission 6, which was recently uploaded on YouTube. Another noteworthy appearance is that of the official T.Flight HOTAS 4 flight stick created by Thrustmaster. Though it is unclear if it has the same Ace Combat 7 branding as announced by Bandai-Namco, it is certainly is the same hardware.
The livestream was made possible by the dedicated efforts of our Chief German Translator and Gamescom 2018 representative, Belkan Government. However, it should be stressed that his assistant for the event was key. Known by the screen name Hazawa, he assisted with the livestream and gathering other types of media which will be discussed in our next blog post.
