Ace Combat Infinity is a free-to-play title, Namco Bandai has confirmed.

The download-only title, which is due to launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 this September, offers a brand new story campaign and a new co-op multiplayer mode, which sees two teams of up to four pilots competing to destroy AI-controlled enemies.

"Pre-flight checks has been initiated for the first free-to-play game of the legendary Ace Combat series," Namco wrote on the game's official Facebook page.

"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. In the new co-op multiplayer, skilled aces will form two teams of up to four players and compete to inflict the most damage on a common enemy."

A new trailer featuring the first gameplay was also released today. Take a look at it below.

VideoGamer.com revealed Namco Bandai's plans for the free-to-play game last month, revealing that the title would be a download-only title available on PSN from September 25.

Putting forth the thoughts of an AC vet, it looks like many of these are recreations from previous key battles in the series.
The battle over Stonehenge in particular was on of the key events of Ace Combat 04 and one looks to be recreating the battle against the Aigaion flying fortress from Ace Combat 6.

It seems unlikely these could be part of a story-based single player campaign.
So that leads me to speculate that the co-op mode is a collection of classic missions from throughout the Ace Combat series.

Exactly how the Free to Play aspect works is going to be curious.

However, with no mention of a competitive multiplayer mode (which I'm personally happy about) that leaves the door open for new aircraft to be premium purchases without any concerns of people just buying their way to MP dominance.

Project Aces already have an established history of releasing texture packs, new aircraft and additional missions, so that's probably what we can expect.
