Assault Horizon was radically different from any other Ace Combat game in various ways. The Close Range Assault system added a new element of gameplay specific to Assault Horizon, and it was the first Ace Combat to be released on personal computers and the PlayStation 3.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon features online multiplayer capabilities, similar to its 2007 predecessor. The game's feature mode, Capital Conquest, has players from both NRF and NATO either attacking or defending cities such as Paris or Washington. All ranges of aircraft can be used, from fighters and multiroles to attackers and choppers. When a base is at critical damage levels, the B-1B and B-2A become available for that side and can be used to cause massive damage to the opposing base. However, they require Air Strike Mode to bomb (meaning they can only bomb the HQ, and only when available), and are very vulnerable, given their limited maneuverability.
A new addition to multiplayer is the "Skill Set" system, which allows players to customize their aircraft's statistics to suit their game style, in ways such as stealth, mobility, and weapons. Another addition is the "Friendly Assist System" (FAS), which allows up to four players to share a skill's benefits.
Assault Horizon allows players to fly a variety of aircraft, ranging from fighters and attack aircraft to helicopters and bombers. Available aircraft include long-runners like the F-16C Fighting Falcon and the F-22A Raptor, while also including new designs like the PAK FA and the Su-24MP Fencer. They also play as a gunner of an AC-130 Spectre. Currently, there are 7 post-release downloadable aircraft which include the ASF-X Shinden II, a fictional aircraft designed by Macross creator Shōji Kawamori in cooperation with Namco Bandai, the Su-37 (with at least one skin being of Yellow Squadron), Ka-50 Hokum, Tornado GR.4, AV-8B Harrier II plus, YF-23A Black Widow II, F-15 S/MTD, and the CFA-44 Nosferatu.
Unlike in the previous games, the player doesn't have to purchase their aircraft but can instead choose freely from whichever is available for the upcoming mission. This isn't the first time that aircraft could be picked from the start after unlock, however, as this feature originated in Ace Combat 3. The selection is limited by the nature of the mission, e.g. in an air-to-ground, the player is limited to Attacker aircraft. After selecting the aircraft, the player can also select its paint scheme and special weaponry. In missions that switch between different player characters, the player has to select aircraft for all of them, e.g. in mission 11, they must select a bomber for Janice Rehl and a fighter or multirole aircraft for William Bishop. The player has no control over the aircraft, colors, and weaponry of their wingmen, who generally choose to fly the aircraft that best fit with the current mission.
There are special paint schemes that may be unlocked while playing the campaign or multiplayer, or downloaded/purchased as downloadable content (DLC) from the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace. For example, to unlock the Death Rider scheme for the F-15C Eagle, it must be downloaded as DLC. But to attain the Mobius paint scheme, you have to play multiplayer and achieve the "Hero" MVP award. Each special paint scheme can also be recolored to a new color scheme of the player's choosing, and there are many hidden selections; for example, the Mobius Squadron logo is normally the same color as the rest of the scheme but can be recolored to be shown.
The Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Original Soundtrack is the game's official soundtrack. Similar in nature to the Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War Original Soundtrack and Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation Original Soundtrack, it combines electronic music with bombing symphonic sounds, which include both Western and oriental instruments. As well, unlike previous Ace Combat soundtracks, it is notable for the inclusion of heavy electric guitar solos in many songs. A stand-alone release has not been confirmed.
The next day, on November 27, Assault Horizon was added to the PlayStation Store as a digital download. An optional bundle pack was also made available, including the game, Tokyo, Honolulu, and some of the DLC aircraft. It was also added to Xbox LIVE Games on Demand on February 19, 2013, as a digital download, but no bundle was made available.
On November 27, 2012, Namco Bandai officially announced the development of a PC port for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon through their UK Twitter account and Facebook page, making it the first Ace Combat game to ever become available for personal computers. Known as the "Enhanced Edition", it has most of the downloadable content featured in the console versions, and optimized controls and graphics for computers. Multiplayer was supported through the Games for Windows - LIVE (GFWL) service before it was replaced by Steamworks (see below). It was released on January 25, 2013, in retail and digital download forms, in addition to being available for download on Steam.
Starting on the week of November 24, 2013, people who purchased Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Enhanced Edition were given invalid GFWL keys that did not redeem for Assault Horizon Enhanced Edition, or anything at all. In response, on December 2, 2013, Steam shut down future purchases of the game while they worked out the problem with Namco Bandai Games and Microsoft. As of February 24, 2014, the game could still not be purchased; however, some players were given refunds (in the form of Steam credit). On February 24, Tony Shoupinou confirmed that the game was going to be available for sale again once the Steamworks transition was ensured to be running smoothly.
On January 17, 2014, Joystiq reported that Namco Bandai was set on removing the GFWL service from Ace Combat: Assault Horizon - Enhanced Edition, but no release date had been provided. According to SteamDB, depots of a "2.0" version of Assault Horizon were uploaded to Steam as early as January 30 with a description indicating that GFWL (G4WL in the description) was being removed. On February 20, 2014, various sources reported that Steam achievements were added to the game.
On August 8, 2012, Namco Bandai announced that they were in talks with OUYA, and asked for suggestions on what possible games to bring to the OUYA console. Out of 841 replies, over 30 people requested an Ace Combat game.
In December 2014, Playcast Media Systems formally released "Playcast Packful Of Fun", a streaming service for the OUYA console, which allowed gamers to play a selection of games with an $8/month subscription. Assault Horizon was included in the service, and a 10-minute timed demo was available for non-members from the game's intro menu. While the game supported achievements, it was not clear which version of the game was being streamed to the OUYA.
As of January 27, 2016, Assault Horizon and all of its DLC were removed from the PlayStation Store and Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Players could no longer purchase any Assault Horizon material digitally. However, players who already had purchased the game or DLC could still download them at any time.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon received generally positive reception from critic reviews. Metacritic currently holds a Metascore of 78 for the Xbox 360 version (based on 71 critics), a Metascore of 77 for the PS3 version (based on 28 critics), and a Metascore of 77 for the PC version (based on 14 critics). However, the reception from gamers was less positive. The PC version currently holds a "Mixed" rating on Steam, where 61% of the 2,300 user-published reviews are positive. 041b061a72
