PARIS, FRANCE – 30 th January 2014 – NAMCO BANDAI Games today initiated pre-flight checks for the first free-to-play game in the legendary Ace Combat series, ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY . Coming exclusively as a free download for PlayStation ®3 via PlayStation ®Network, ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY combines features from previous Ace Combat titles with a brand new story campaign and team co-op multiplayer. The game is scheduled for take-off in 2014.

We are pleased to announce to aces all around the world (except Japan) that the Open Beta test for ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY will be available from February the 4 th until February the 11 th of this year.

Whether a combat-ready pro or a battle-shy beginner, every player will have the opportunity to take part in tremendous fights into the endless blue sky of ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY .

The Open Beta is completely free so this will be the perfect chance to discover the gigantic content the game has to offer and to improve pilot skills before the game launch!

In ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY, aces will be introduced to an amazing world full of super weapons and the deadliest aircraft with hyper-real visuals. They will have access to two game modes:

-       Lone wolves will be immersed in a brand new story exclusively written for ACE COMBAT™ INFINITY in which they will have to use their pilot skills during perilous solo missions.

-       For those who prefer to team-up with their friends and to show off their talent as a pilot, aces will form two co-op teams of up to four aircrafts and will compete in incredible air fights in order to inflict the most damage on the NPC enemy forces.

The brave pilots who will take part in the upcoming Open Beta test will receive a special and unique emblem which will be given at the game launch as a proof of their dedication to the ACE COMBAT franchise as it launches its first Free-To-Play Beta.

To play the Beta go to the Playstation Store and search for “Ace Combat Infinity.”  Then download the client and play!  Players can also take part in the game development by giving their feedback and answering this survey on the Open beta website, each participant will be rewarded with an exclusive wallpaper.
