Armored Core VI sees players hoping into the metallic boots of augmented mercenary, who has access to a massive customisable mech. The PS Blog post goes into much more detail on how the game plays, stating that fans can look forward too the “smooth, responsive controls they’ve come to expect in FromSoftware’s games is still here — just in a different context.”
In terms of narrative, Armored Core VI takes place on the planet Rubicon, which is home to a powerful energy source known as the Coral. This material is highly volatile, and has resulted in a huge disaster that has reduced nearly all of the planet to ash. Despite this, mega corporations still wage war over this valuable resource.
Armored Core VI is due out on August 25, 2023 for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One.
