LIGHT UP THE AFTERBURNERS AS ACE COMBAT INFINITY BECOMES AVAILABLE TODAY DIGITALLY FOR THE PLAYSTATION 3 SYSTEM
ACE COMBAT INFINITY acquires Free-to-Play Target and Engages with Exclusive In-Game Campaign and Special Events Available Now for a Limited Time
SAN JOSE, Calif., (May 27, 2014) – Leading video game publisher and developer BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today launched ACE COMBAT INFINITY, the first free-to-play entry in their long-running and beloved ACE COMBAT franchise. Pilots will rule the skies as they step into the cockpit of the most high-tech and deadly aircraft from around the world and engage enemy tangos solo or with a squadron of allies. ACE COMBAT INFINITY is available now for download via the PlayStation Network for free exclusively on the PlayStation computer entertainment system throughout the Americas.
ACE COMBAT INFINITY, developed internally at BANDAI NAMCO Games Inc. by the famed PROJECT ACES team delivers an evolution of the classic flight-action genre fans around the world have loved throughout the franchise’s 20 year history. Players will take on elite enemy forces in co-op campaign missions as they team up with three ace pilots and compete against a rival team of four players to take out as many enemies as possible. Outmaneuver and outflank the opposing team in a dogfighting race to get the most kills against a common enemy.
A solo campaign is also available for fans who want to step into the shoes of a mercenary ace pilot and strike though the sky in a near-future world in a series of perilous missions. Players will also be able to customize their aircraft with weapons, enhancements, and a wide variety of paint jobs to ensure that their planes stand out from the rest of the squadron. These customization rewards will be given out for successfully completing solo and co-op missions.
