Check Out The Free-To-Play Ace Combat Game

By Spencer . August 2, 2013 . 12:43am

Namco Bandai has been pushing the free-to-play model onto consoles starting with Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation. That title was a moneymaker and soon after Tekken Revolution was released. Ace Combat Infinity will be the company’s third free-to-play game for PlayStation 3.


Ace Combat Infinity is set in the near future with a new story campaign. The game also has a multiplayer mode where two teams fight a common enemy to see who can deal the most damage.


Ace Combat Infinity is slated for release later this year.

    Hey now, that sounds interesting, I’d love to try that out sometime

  • Jah-keem York

    It’s weird it’s like I hate this game is free to play, but as long as the game’s still that Ace Combat I love it won’t bother me. In fact I fully support this, after playing Tekken Revolution it seems Namco is still planning to give these F2P games their full support and just make money off of in-game items. Which I think is perfectly fine as long as it doesn’t impact the main campaign or the game. I won’t mind throwing down what would be the $60 I spend on the game, on other things of the game.

    Hmm never played Ace Combat before but I did hear one of the games soundtracks. The Unsung War or something with Razgriz. Anyway if it comes west I’ll check it out.

  • HassanJamal

    Hey at least its got some quality AC music to it.
    Edit: Well then, hype is a bit less now. Keeping expectations low.

    • Jah-keem York

      It’s from Ace Combat 4.

    • Lynx

      Not new though. That’s from AC04.

  • neocatzon

    Oh, f2p. Hope it can attract new players. Love the AC music though.

  • ChiffonCake

    Not sure how to feel about it being f2p, but I’ll hope for the best. That’s a really damn cool trailer, anyway… managed to get me excited.

    Also, Rex Tremendae!

  • Thomaz Barros

    I’m really, really, hoping it wont be Pay2Win

    • makubexnas

      No, you have to pay $1 to fire missile.

  • Thomaz Barros


    It gave me goosebumps hearing this

  • Zikrayrus “Zikk” Dis Pear

    Ace Combat is free to play?

    My heart wishes for Ace Combat 7 with the AC6 system but…somehow this looks like it might work after all…if they don’t shove DFM on us again -.-

    Why I feel it works? Well.. its the goosebumps.

    • Brion Valkerion

      yeah, I was hoping for a 7, even willing to pay for it! but this game looks damn good for a free to play. Hopefully there isnt any horrible paywall or bad mechanics.

      That and woo old voice actors returning!

  • Janius100 .

    Wasn’t Stonehenge one of the Super-weapons in Ace Combat 4? And that flying carrier looked awefully damn familiar…

  • TWE

    So the overarching story will just be the previous ace combat plots shoehorned into the real world settings? They could have at least tried.

    I guess this means no more single player AC games. Bummer.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Cool, looks to be a mash up of planes and enemies from all the AC titles. Saw stuff from 4-6 especially.

  • Isaac Newton

    I heard Stonehenge on the trailer!
    If the next trailer features a plane from AC3 my mind would blew away.
    And If they mentioned or show Razgriz in there then sh*t just got real!
