September 25th is the projected launch date.
The eighteenth title in the Ace Combat series, Infinity, will be free to play at launch, Namco Bandai has confirmed. This PS3 exclusive title will be available from September 25th, and features co-op multiplayer, with everyone ganging up on a common foe. See you, Stonehenge? You want some? Come over here and say that ...
"Set in a precise near future world and including beloved elements like super weapons and hyper-real visuals, the game will offer a brand new story campaign," says Namco Bandai. Ace Combat: Infinity is a download-only title, and gameplay ought to be familiar to veterans of the series. In addition to Stonehenge's railguns, elements from Fires of Liberation - the Aigaion Air Fleet and CFA-44 Nosferatu - will also be making a reappearance. This is the first time an Ace Combat game has gone free to play, but it's not yet clear what money-making elements Namco Bandai intends to sneak in. As for plot, some rocks clonked Earth about twenty years ago. There you have it.
