About ARMORED CORE™ VI FIRES OF RUBICON™

About this game

Developed by FromSoftware and published by Bandai Namco and FromSoftware

From the development team that brought you some of the hardest and most beloved franchises like DARK SOULS, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Bloodborne, and even 2022 Game of the Year ELDEN RING comes ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON, the return of the famous franchise. 

A New Entry to A Cult Favourite

ARMORED CORE makes its return after eleven years of silence and absence in the form of ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON! Suit up in your mech, grab hold of the controllers, and take to the skies in an all-new modern entry!

All-new Experience

FromSoftware brings their previous experience from world-famous franchises to one of their earlier ones! Explore ARMORED CORE reimagined with the expertise and knowledge that the team has learned whilst developing back-to-back Game of the Year winners, from DARK SOULS to ELDEN RING!

Take On the Mission

Take control of a gargantuan mech as you engage in high-octane combat with omnidirectional implementations as you fight foes that are larger than your mech... but yours is stronger. 

Giant Mech Boss Battles

With long- and short-range combat encounters, different playstyles, and offensive and defensive tactics, you'll need to adapt as you fight the foes and leave their scrap on the battlefield.

"No, it's no Dark Souls with mechs, but Armored Core VI carves out its own identity."
90 / 100
"White-knuckle brilliant Soulslike action, coupled with a movement style not seen in this genre for an entire generation, resurrects a blast from the past in a whole new way. If...

"Rigor, accuracy and dexterity. ACVIFOR hits very hard. This kind of exigence in gameplay from From Software will bring newcomers to the mecha genre without a doubt."

Game is amazing. A must have for mech lovers. Runs smoothly, even on my really old rig. Mech customization is really wide, allowing a big range of gameplay styles. There is also a huge array of aesthetic customization, and although I didn't try it out on my own besides changing the mech color, I must say, after seeing a lot of shared community liveries, that you can achieve really interesting results. In term of difficulty there may be an initial discouraging impact for those new to the genre, but that can be easily overcome once you understand the core mechanics of the combat system. Also training missions (tutorial quests) do help in that. So far, I didn't encounter bugs. My only concern is towards some optimization issue that happen in the menu where sometimes my fps drop significantly as opposed to being stable and performing while missions, but I'm confident this issue will be addressed in later patches.

This game is just pure, unadulterated fun. Customizing your mech to try and S rank every single mission is so enjoyable and entertaining, and it's so satisfying when you finally get the S. The combat in Armored Core 6 is nothing short of breathtaking, with each battle feeling like a carefully choreographed dance of destruction.

Armored core 6 fires of Rubicon is a very fun game. The combat is fast paced which is what I like. The boss fights are fun and hard but not impossible. Level design of the game is also very good and does a good job portraying the feel of the story.

Armored Core is back and better than ever! Beautiful mechs, great customization, quick and fluid gameplay, and replayability as 3 replays minimum are required to get all the endings. It was fantastic from start to finish and I can't wait to get more AC games in the future!

The game is challenging, but fun to play. If you like souls-like games and giant mechs, then this is perfect for you. The level of customization is also amazing.
