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.
