New Armored Core 6 showcase will highlight lore, mission gameplay and PvP

From Software will reveal new Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon details and gameplay on Friday.

The latest showcase for the mech action game will air on August 18 at 4pm PT / 7pm ET (August 19 at 12am BST / 1am CEST).

Publisher Bandai Namco said the presentation will highlight lore, mission gameplay and PvP.

It will be viewable on YouTube and Twitch, and you’ll also be able to watch it live via the YouTube video embedded at the top of this page.

Announced at The Game Awards last December, the sixth instalment in the series marks the first new Armored Core game in more than a decade, the last being Armored Core 5 back in 2012.

Promising “fast-paced battles, in-depth customisation, and thrilling boss fights”, the game will be released on August 25 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC via Steam.

“A mysterious new substance called ‘Coral’ was discovered on the remote planet, Rubicon 3,” reads an official blurb for the game. “As an energy source, this substance was expected to dramatically advance humanity’s technological and communications capabilities. Instead, it 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, Coral has resurfaced on Rubicon 3, a planet now contaminated and sealed off by the catastrophe. Extra-terrestrial corporations and resistance groups fight over control of the substance. The player infiltrates Rubicon as an independent mercenary and finds themselves in a struggle over the substance with the corporations and other factions.”
