As Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown sits on the tarmac awaiting takeoff this week, it’s worth looking at the exclusive PlayStation VR mode.

Rather than being some dinky little mini-experience tacked onto the game, the developers have gone all out to bring PSVR players a unique Ace Combat thrill ride – and it’s a free part of the standard game for PS4 owners.

The video below features interviews with several of those involved, as well as offering up footage of the in-game VR mode – which obviously looks a lot better when you have the headset on and are completely immersed in the action.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown takes off on January 18 for PS4 and Xbox One.
