Fans who pre-order ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON for Xbox 360® or PlayStation®3 at participating European retailers, will guarantee themselves a copy of the European Limited Edition while stocks last, loaded with exclusive content.  Packed in a battle-ready steel case, the Limited Edition contains the game DVD, the original soundtrack on CD, a notebook signed by the development team at Project Aces, plus a card to download an exclusive playable aircraft.

Developed by the Project Aces team at NAMCO BANDAI Games Inc. in Japan, ACE COMBAT™ ASSAULT HORIZON brings a new intensity to the franchise, escalating combat to the next level with aircraft that are literally torn apart, spewing oil and debris across the sky. Players will engage in combat across the globe, including over Dubai, the location of today’s LEVEL UP event. In single and multiplayer online modes, players will dodge skyscrapers and turn their enemies into fiery supersonic debris. Never before has combat been so fast and in-your-face.
