FromSoftware is back with the Armored Core series, for those who’ve waited over a decade Armored Core 6: Rubicon Firereleased a new game preview today.
In the videos, narrated by the developers, you will learn about the game’s universe and mechanics and get the full gameplay experience.
As the video shows, the game’s success comes from tinkering with highly customizable mech builds. Learning the right tactics and techniques, such as using the right weapons to stun enemies, combining ranged and melee attacks, and taking advantage of every advantage in combat will also lead to success.
The story of Armored Core 6 revolves around a substance called “coral”. It was discovered on the planet Rubicon and was hailed as an energy source that would bring a “giant leap” to human society. However, this “new era” did not come.
That’s because one day, the coral sparked a catastrophe that engulfed the surrounding star system in flames and storms, leaving behind a deadly pollution. The area has been under strict surveillance since then and the area around the Rubicon has now been cordoned off.
Nearly half a century has passed since the catastrophe, but history is repeating itself as another unknown substance is discovered on a remote developing planet. As a result, the conflict between the secret invaders and the “greedy rebels” has been triggered. There are signs of a full-scale conflict, and independent mercenaries are about to fall into a whirlpool.
Armored Core 6: Rubicom’s Fire will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on August 25.
