Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown DLC trailer is a real headscratcher

If you like a bit of mystery, the latest trailer for Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown is a good nut to try crack. First it doesn’t involve any dogfighting or cool aerial manoeuvres. Instead if is someone writing out a report and battling with the title.

The character (who goes by the super easy to remember 00815674E in a chat program) asks Alex for help with the title and we get a bunch of titles pop up in quick succession. Are these names of the missions you will be flying, or a hint at the content? One stood out for me: The Trolley Problem, which is a famous thought experiment that looks at the ethical dilemma of being able to save one group of people, but damning another group. The next two titles seem to show the two options on the tracks: One million hostages and Ten million relief plan. What is going on?

The DLC will include three new missions and three aircraft that aren’t based on real-life machines.

The DLC comes in early Summer, and hopefully someone can explain what this is all about before then.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
