Namco Bandai has announced that the next entry in its high-flying arcade-style dogfighting series Ace Combat is going free-to-play. Ace Combat Infinity will be out this fall exclusively on PlayStation 3.

The title takes place in the near future and the campaign mode pits players against the series' trademark super weapons. A cooperative multiplayer mode and 4-on-4 competitive play are both included. There is no detail yet about which elements will be monetized.
