FromSoftware has officially announced a new game in the Armored Core series.
Published by Bandai Namco, the sixth installment marks the first new Armored Core game in more than a decade, the last being Armored Core V back in 2012.
The announcement has been somewhat expected for a while, given that some players were reporting back in January that they had received a survey revealing the first details on the game.
The alleged survey said the game would feature a “sci-fi world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki”, “three-dimensional, dynamic action” and a “high degree of freedom in customisation”.
It also reportedly said: “The game is a TPS (third person shooter) mecha action title that lets you move around an overwhelmingly scaled map that represents a unique sci-fi world with dynamic mech action. You will face strong enemies and fierce battles both long and short range using guns and blades.”
The synopsis for the game reportedly saw the government, corporations, cultists and unknown mercenaries battling over an alien substance that can “drastically advance human society”, and was also accompanied by a small amount of watermarked footage, it was claimed.
