In a thrilling development for fans of mech combat games, FromSoftware has revealed some tantalising details about the multiplayer mode for its upcoming title, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. The game, which is set to launch on August 25th, is eagerly anticipated by fans of the Armored Core series and those who have been captivated by FromSoftware’s recent success with a Game of the Year award for Elden Ring.
A New Chapter in Mech Combat
Although we are within spitting distance of the Armored Core 6 release date, FromSoftware has held their cards close to the chest, giving only enigmatic glimpses into the game through trailers and previews. This extends to the all-important multiplayer mode, which has been shrouded in secrecy, with only breadcrumbs of information seeping out.
Armored Core 6: The Multiplayer Mode Unveiled
Let’s chat about the multiplayer mode. Picture this: you’ve stumbled upon a photo of the back of the Armored Core 6 box, and it carries whispers of exciting details. It suggests the multiplayer mode in the game will accommodate a six-player showdown with an added trimmings of three spectators. The maths isn’t hard – could this mean 3v3 multiplayer matches in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon?
With the official launch of Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon a month away, FromSoftware is likely to spill the beans on this sooner rather than later. Yet, true to their style, we might just be kept in suspense until the grand unveiling on launch day.
Player versus Player (PvP) isn’t new to FromSoftware – it’s almost like a birthmark. The twist in the tale for Armored Core 6, however, is the absence of co-op mode, making it a battlefield strictly for competitors.
Switching gears a bit, Armored Core 6 seems like it could be a gamble for FromSoftware. After a decade-long stint churning out Soulslike titles, the mech title steps off the beaten path. It’s not a Soulslike, it’s not offering co-op, and it’s a departure from the games that put FromSoftware on the map. Yet, if we’ve learned anything from the developers history, it’s that they aren’t afraid to roll the dice.
Armored Core 6 might be a step into uncharted waters, but we’re eager to see if it can hold its own alongside its illustrious predecessors. The verdict? Well, that’s a journey we’ll all embark on together, controller in hand.
All said and done, Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is set to hit the shelves on August 25th for Windows PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
