'Ace Combat Infinity' (PS3) Gets PvP Mode, But For A Limited Time Only

Freedom is at the heart of the experience in Ace Combat Infinity as players dive into the game’s wealth of free-to-play content and fully absorb the endless blue skies with impunity.

The key to all successful combat missions is great teamwork and overwhelming firepower! Ace Combat Infinity’s multiplayer mode will challenge you to work with a squadron of friends to either go head-to-head or cooperate with other squads to dominate the skies.

Ace Combat Infinity’s "Online Co-op Missions" is a completely new mode to the series challenging four players to create one cohesive squadron to either work with or compete against another rival team. Players will then take-on missions specifically designed for this mode heightening the need to work as a unit to destroy enemy troops or take out an enemy troop base, etc.

The winning air combat strategy is in the hands of each pilot within each team. Players can decide to challenge stronger AI enemies with allied squadrons first or go after targets that the rival teams did not destroy to rack up more kills. Players and their teams will decide on their main mission goals as well, from accomplishing a huge mission task by cooperating with other squadrons to going completely head-to-head against rival flight squads to outscore them to demonstrating their superior team dynamics by providing superior wingman skills to ensure the team returns to base victorious.

Ace Combat Infinity will allow players to use rewards gained from playing the "Online Co-op Missions" to obtain their favorite aircraft and enhance them. The more a player plays online with friends, the more strategy they will be able to use to gain a larger variety of aircraft and special weapons.

As a show of dedication to the fans, Bandai Namco Games and Project ACES have now brought to the table one of the most long-awaited features of all: PvP. Beyond the classic head-to-head death matches, this new PvP event (from today July 17th until July 20th) will allow pilots to battle in intense team fights for up to eight players (minimum four players)! Winning this brawl will depend on how many points are accrued from the players and teams. Whether the participants are experienced pilots or new recruits, they will be able to join the fight with the following aircrafts:

  • F-4E
  • F-4G
  • F-16C
  • Mig-21bis
  • AV-8B
  • Mirage 2000-5
  • Su-25

This First Team Deathmatch event in the PVP area is open now with a second PvP event scheduled to be held at the end of the month. The first PvP event will also have its perks! Players will receive:

  • Emblems (“Crow” and “Silber”)
  • Nicknames (“Crow,” “Cleaner,” and “Calm and Bold”)
  • Research reports and credits

 To make things even more exciting, BANDAI NAMCO Games also announced today a new mission in the solo Campaign mode! Pilots will be able to pilot a new roster of aircrafts including the Su-47, F-15 S/MTD, and Gripen C and report for duty starting July 17th!
