Online co-op, except not really.
Ace Combat Infinity, the upcoming newest game in Namco Bandai’s long running air simulator and combat series, just got a new trailer, this one showcasing the online co-op missions in the game. The game looks like it might be pretty exciting, especially for series fans, and it might just spell a return to form for the series after the disappointing last installment.
Online Co-op Missions, meanwhile, are completely new to Ace Combat Infinity, which will involve 4v4 team matches (so it’s not really co-op); you have to work with your team to complete assigned missions before your enemy team does, meaning you can either choose to focus on trying to complete the assigned mission as soon as possible, or you can instead focus exclusively on annihilating your opponent so you get a clear field.
Ace Combat Infinity is a PlayStation 3 exclusive. The game will be made available on the PSN Store sometime later this year.
