Microsoft Flight Simulator isn’t the only game that’s collaborating with Top Gun: Maverick. Fellow flying game Ace Combat 7 has also gotten its own DLC based on the film, and it’s out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $19.99.

Bandai Namco released a trailer of the DLC in action. The DLC itself will have six aircrafts (although two appear to be a similar model), 10 emblems, 38 skins, 12 nicknames, and two music tracks for its multiplayer.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown – Top Gun: Maverick Edition also contains the Top Gun DLC, as well as the base game. That bundle is currently on sale on both Xbox One and PS4 for $29.99, but is full price ($74.99) on PC. There’s also the Maverick Ultimate Edition that comes with the base game’s season pass and the Top Gun DLC that normally costs $99.99, but is also currently on sale for $39.99 (it is also still full price on PC). The base game without the DLC, however, is also on a deep discount ($11.99) right now on all three platforms.

Here are all of the items included in the base Top Gun: Maverick DLC:
