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.
