Armored Core V is the fourteenth entry into From Software and Namco Bandai’s mech battling game series. How is that possible, you ask? Well, if you’ve been reading my History of Armored Core, you’ll know this series only places a number on its titles when it has something important in store for the player. Numbered Armored Cores are game changers—literally—they are From Software’s way of rolling out new game engines and/or universe reboots; Armored Core V is no exception here. For better and for worse, ACV sports the most radical changes to the time-tested Armored Core formula to date. So, let’s switch over to Combat Mode and see if it can take a few hits, shall we?
