Project Aces has announced how and when Ace Combat fans can get access to the PlayStation 3 beta. February 4-11, gamers can download the PlayStation 3-exclusive Ace Combat Infinity open beta client from the PlayStation Store. Access to the beta is free and participants will receive a unique, in-game emblem. Players will be able to give feedback on the beta by filling out this survey.
The beta will have two modes, one for single player and another for co-op. The solo campaign will feature ridiculous super weapons, over-the-top aerial dogfights, and other staples of the Ace Combat franchise. Co-op will have players teaming up in up to two groups of four, pitting themselves against hordes of NPC aircraft.
As a long-time Ace Combat enthusiast, I am very eager to get some hands-on time with Infinity. Hopefully it will have a relatively long life cycle, despite being a PS3-exclusive.
