While Ace Combat Infinity was teased a few weeks back, Namco-Bandai announced some more details about the game earlier today. The biggest being that the game will be free-to-play.
“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.”
It is interesting to learn that the game will have both a story campaign along with a multiplayer mode. The campaign will have you “execute a series of perilous solo missions”, while online battles will feature “two teams of up to four players and compete to inflict the most damage on a common enemy.”
Having played Tekken Revolution, it seems that Namco knows what they are doing in the free-to-play space and I am excited to see how this game turns out.
