Ace Combat 6 Title Update Enhances Online Play

A title update for Ace Combat 6 has been released today which focuses entirely on tweaking the game’s online play for a more balanced experience. This free update will be automatically downloaded next time you start the game while connected to Xbox Live.

The changelist is as follows:

  • The in-game HUD will now indicate when points are gained or lost in online play
  • Players will now be penalized for crashing their aircraft, leaving the battlefield and being shot down by opponents in Team Battle and Battle Royale modes
  • Players can now gain points by damaging enemy aircraft rather than making a complete kill in Team Battle and Battle Royale modes
  • Players will now be invulnerable for a brief period of time after each respawn
  • The overall strength of each special weapon has been updated for greater gameplay balance
  • Players can now identify who is speaking in the pre-game lobby with a microphone icon next to their GamerTag

Doesn’t look like it’s anything that will dramatically change the game, but more of a “how it should have been” update. Any Ace Combat fans out there, feel free to share your thoughts on the changes in the comments.

I own Ace Combat 6, It an awesome game especaly for online dogfighting and other game modes online. I would love a Custom Paint Editor for the planes or some way to desigin a cool logo atleast on the planes. but i doubt this will ever happen. It would give each persons plane some character.

Agreed, it would definitely liven things up a bit.
