Ace Combat Infinity will be released this year as a free download for the PlayStation 3 on the PlayStation Network, publisher Namco Bandai Games announced today. The game was originally announced last month.
Ace Combat Infinity will feature a "brand new" story campaign and co-op multiplayer, as well as "features that are important" to fans, though these were not specified.
"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," Namco Bandai Games executive Olivier Comte said in a statement.
The game will feature "tons" of free-to-play content, though Namco Bandai did not specify what kinds of items--if any--will be available for purchase within the title.
Ace Combat Infinity is in development at Project Aces. The most recent entry in the series, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (2011), is available for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
