From the legendary minds at FROMSOFTWARE, the ARMORED CORE series blazes a brand-new trail in ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON.
At first I honestly thought it was a brand new Sci-Fi inspired Souls game Still have hope for the future though, you never know where the Soul like games will take us
think the director of Sekiro is at the helm. Should be good
It started with Miyazaki initially and is now being headed by the lead designer of Sekiro, Masaru Yamamura. I am hype incarnate. A world crafted by the father of Demon's Souls himself and being finalized by the guys that brought us the intense combat of Sekiro.
Might be my favorite trailer from TGA. And also one of the best trailers I've seen in a while. Really well edited. Kudos.
The genre is popular. It's only a matter of time before someone makes a sci-fi soulsborn game. I can't think of a single genre that has reached a level of popularity that only stuck to one setting. And technically, Star Wars Fallen Order already did. But I know that isn't what you're looking for.
The Surge, mate.
Wouldn't The Surge kinda fit into that category? I know it's not as good as a fromsoft game, but it's something at least.
yeah but i guess I'm hoping for mechs with fast Sekiro type combat gameplay. Not slow n plodding on foot to foot. Like you and Corn mention, there's a growing number of souls clones and with SW Fallen Order and Remnant, some of them are quite good
It very likely will follow Soul's themes, but how is this the first time you've hard of Armed Core?
f that, ARMORED CORE is what matter.
i screamed when this was shown. i’ve waited so long for a new ac 😭
The reviews of older AC titles seem mid-to-decent; players of those games, how they hold up to you? Didn't play them when I was younger, but after Elden Ring and Sekiro especially I'm hooked on anything FROM is doing.
The originals ones on PS1 are cool, but I can't really speak on whether they've aged well. I remember them being a bit slower and clunky. Tank controls iirc The PS2 games, specifically AC3, were the golden era. They are hard to find nowadays outside of emulation. They hold up fairly well. The PS3 games, most notably AC4 and 4A, have the closest esthetic to AC6. The energy barriers around the mechs (I kid you not, they are called Kojima particles) were introduced in AC4. Also, the main core in the spotlight of the AC6 trailer is basically a redesign of White Glint from AC4. AC5 and Verdict Day went all in on PvP, but PvP has always been a shining part of the series. One of the PS1 games is literally called "Master of the Arena." I think it really reached its mech vs. mech pinnacle in AC: Last Raven on PS2. They called their pilots "Ravens." How cool is that? So yeah. For Geoff to say it's a legendary series is an accurate statement.
The PS1 games had super clunky controls, love those games, but analogue sticks made such a huge difference to the gameplay.
Armored Core V was already 10 years ago, and Fromsoft has come a LONG way since then. They won GOTY with their last two games in a row now. I'd be surprised if this didn't end up being the best Armored Core game by a longshot.
Kind of left the series around the actual third or fourth entry. Became too floaty.
Hopefully in these modern times we can finally see an AC game with non-dog shii environments. Mechs have always been super detailed but environments have always looked like bland low res stretched tectures and generic cubes and rectangles as buildings.
Finally, I have been a fan of this series since the original on PS1 and I have been hoping they would make a new one for a long time.
Destructible environments please. We got the power now. Can I get a 9 ball.
It was nice having the crowd react again to the trailers
The best announcement by far
