Namco Bandai Games today initiated pre-flight checks for the first free-to-play game in the legendary Ace Combat series, ACE COMBAT INFINITY. Coming exclusively as a free download for PlayStation3 via PlayStation Network, ACE COMBAT INFINITY combines features that are important to the fans from previous Ace Combat titles with a brand new story campaign and team co-op multiplayer. The game is scheduled for take-off later in 2013.
“The Ace Combat franchise has evolved dramatically over the years, but never before have we been able to offer its amazing graphics and tactical action for free,” said Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President at Namco Bandai Games Europe. “The team at Project Aces listens very carefully to its players, and is bringing the best the series has to offer to ACE COMBAT INFINITY, with plenty of new surprises too.”
Freedom is at the heart of the experience in ACE COMBAT INFINITY as players dive into the game’s wealth of free-to-play content and fully absorb the endless blue skies with impunity. The game combines a precise near future world setting with elements that are important to fans from previous Ace Combat titles, including super weapons and hyper-real visuals. The Story Campaign Mode will immerse players in the game’s original scenario as they execute a series of perilous solo missions. In the game’s online multiplayer mode, skilled aces will form two teams of up to four players and compete to inflict the most damage on a common enemy.
Offering tons of free-to-play content and complete freedom to fly, ACE COMBAT INFINITY for PlayStation 3 is scheduled for take-off in 2013.
