Free-to-play PlayStation 3 release Ace Combat Infinity launches May 27, publisher Bandai Namco confirmed today.
The game is currently in development from studio Project Aces, best known for the flight simulation series. Ace Combat Infinity takes place in the near future and includes solo mission as well as up-to four-player multiplayer, pitting two teams of two players against one enemy to inflict the most damage.
The game was first announced last year, with a tentative release window of late 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," the publisher's Europe's senior vice president Olivier Comte said in a prepared statement at the time. "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."
