Armored Core 6 gameplay

Armored Core VI offers an immersive mech-centric vehicle combat game that puts players in the role of a skilled pilot controlling a powerful Armored Core. These mechs can be extensively customized with different parts, allowing players to refine and enhance their abilities.

A notable feature is that players can equip their mech with a range of weapons, with slots on each arm and two slots on the back of the mech. This variety allows players to make strategic choices during combat.

The arena concept seen in previous games returns with the Combat Ability Assessment Program, allowing players to test their skills against others.Successfully completed missions earn in-game points, which scale based on goals achieved, without the penalties of past debt systems for failed missions.

Unlike previous games, Armored Core VI eliminates the debt system, allowing players to attempt missions an unlimited number of times without fear of losing currency.


Armored Core 6 plot

The story of “Armored Core VI” takes place in a future era where mankind has achieved interstellar society. The story centers on the planet Rubicon 3, which is located on the frontier. Here, a multifunctional substance called coral was discovered, capable of acting as an energy and data conduit. Coral was initially thought to be a boon to technological advancement, but instead sparked a catastrophic event known as the “Ibis Fire.”

The event engulfed the planet and its neighboring star system in destructive flames, leaving dangerous contamination in its wake. Although it was believed that all the coral had been wiped out, traces of Rubicon 3 reappeared five years later.

Driven by corporate interests, companies rush to exploit the potential of corals without regard for the well-being of residents. This sparked conflict and mercenaries took advantage of the confusion. Players take on the role of “C4-621,” an augmented human under the command of the notorious Administrator Walter. The protagonist, as an Armored Core pilot, performs mercenary missions with the goal of a new beginning. After illegally landing on Rubicon 3, C4-621 assumed the identity of a fallen mercenary and adopted the callsign “Raven”.

Armored Core 6 Development

In September 2016, FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki hinted that a new armored core unit would be in the early stages of development. A leak in January 2022 revealed work in progress on the series, which was confirmed via focus testing. The official announcement was made at The Game Awards 2022 in December.

Masaru Yamamura served as the chief game designer of “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” and succeeded Hayao Miyazaki in directing “Armored Core VI”. The project’s resources were carefully managed, resulting in the delayed development start expected by the team. In 2018, when prototyping began and the gameplay was finalized, Yamamura took over as director.

Lead composer Kota Hoshino composed the game’s music. The mountain village provided the keywords to create the desired atmosphere – filled with loneliness and nostalgia. Hoshino’s compositions are guided by keywords and evolve to adapt to the progression of the game. Takashi Onodera and Shoi Miyazawa contributed additional music during development.
