Namco Bandai has announced that Ace Combat Infinity will be released exclusively on Playstation 3, and surprisingly, it will be free-to-play.

“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 Europe senior VP Olivier Comte stated.

“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.”

Ace Combat Infinity will feature both a singleplayer campaign and a multiplayer offering.
