Ace Combat Infinity takes free-to-play flight on PlayStation 3 May 27

Posted on April 22, 2014 AT 11:35am

Bandai Namco’s free-to-play aerial combat simulator Ace Combat Infinity will launch on PlayStation 3 May 27, the publisher announced today.

Infinity will tout a full story campaign and a co-op that allows for two teams of four to face off against NPC enemies. Bandai Namco has plans to incorporate PvP multiplayer following the game’s release.

Ace Combat Infinity is set in an alternate-reality 1994 in which the 5254 Ulysses collided with one of Jupiter’s moons (a fictional one called Polyphemus, apparently). The meteors formed from the destroyed moon’s debris eventually reach earth in 1999, and despite the world powers’ efforts to stop the impact, 20 percent of the Earth’s surface is destroyed. Skip forward another twenty years and players take flight as pilots in the PMC outfit Arrows Air Defense and Security, squiring off against a terrorist group called the Sons of Troia.

Because anyone plays Ace Combat for the story. Look, the important thing is: the game looks good, and if you’re a fan of Ace Combat’s combat flight simulation, well now you can have it for free.
