[TGA 2022] Armored Core VI: Fires Of Rubicon: FromSoftware Returns To An Older IP [VIDEO]

Finally, the Japanese studio is not only making Souls-like games: they are returning to an IP that has been neglected lately.


According to publisher Bandai Namco, it will be a “dynamic, fast-paced mech action. Based on the knowledge gained during the joint development of their recent titles, Bandai Namco Entertainment and FromSoftware seek to deliver a new action game. Combining FromSoftware’s longstanding expertise in mech games and their robust signature gameplay, Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon will be a unique action experience. In Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, players will assemble and pilot their mech with 3D maneuverability to move freely through fast-paced three-dimensional missions. Take on complex challenges and overwhelm your enemies with dynamic movements that use ranged and melee combat. Players can enjoy a variety of actions that can only be truly realized with mechs.

A mysterious new substance was discovered on the remote planet, Rubicon 3. As an energy source, this substance was expected to advance humanity’s technological and communications capabilities dramatically. Instead, this substance caused a catastrophe that engulfed the planet and the surrounding stars in flames and storms, forming a Burning Star System. Almost half a century later, the same substance resurfaced on Rubicon 3, a planet now contaminated and sealed off by the catastrophe. Extra-terrestrial corporations and resistance groups fight over the control of the essence. The player infiltrates Rubicon as an independent mercenary and finds themself in a struggle over the substance with the corporations and other factions.”

The director of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon was initially Hidetaka Miyazaki, but Masaru Yamamura has taken over his position. The game will be cross-gen, with a 2023 release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Will the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will be canceled? Both consoles will be ten years old next year, and we’ve seen examples of a cross-gen game dropping the previous generation of consoles (Gotham Knights).
