Bandai Namco Entertainment development studio FromSoftware is on the run of a lifetime. Since popularizing the "Soulsbourne" subgenre of action RPGs, the game creation house has produced a lineup of high-caliber games from the Demon's/Dark Souls franchise. The rest of the studio's most esteemed releases have increased its status as a top-five developer - Bloodborne, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Elden Ring have all been released to critical acclaim and brought in impressive sales numbers. Before FromSoftware became known as the studio that creates the toughest gaming experiences known to man, it was better known as the studio that created a line of games focused on building formidable mechs known as "Armored Cores." The last time we got a game in that franchise was back in 2013 with Armored Core: Verdict Day. And now in 2023, FromSoftware is ready to indulge in mechanized warfare all over again. Stay with us as we break down the Armored Core 6 release date, story, gameplay, and more.
