After a ten-year absence, Armored Core is now available to the public. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, the next installment in From Software’s mech warfare series, will be released in 2023 and will be revealed tonight at The Game Awards 2022.
Although the existence of the game has been widely theorized for years, the CG video did not reveal much new information. Fans of the series will not be surprised to see a bleak future in which enormous robots battle it out. While the lava and ice are stunning, the CGI mechs are the real show-stoppers.
Even while it’s impossible to draw definite judgments from a CGI trailer, the first minute of Armored Core VI appears to have the introspective, somber ambiance of the Dark Souls games. The Steam release date has been set for 2023.
What Is Armored Core Game?
Armored Core[a] is a third-person shooter mecha video game series developed by FromSoftware. The series follows a mute protagonist as he works as a mercenary pilot in the near future, piloting huge robotic combat units known as Armored Cores for corporate and individual clients.

Where Can I Find Out More About Armored Core Vi’s Plot?
Something peculiar was discovered on the faraway planet designated as Rubicon 3. Utilizing this chemical for energy was supposed to greatly expand people’s access to information and communication tools.
Instead, this chemical sparked a catastrophic event that engulfed the planet and the nearby stars in flames and storms, giving rise to what is now known as a Burning Star System.
On Rubicon 3, a planet that had been rendered uninhabitable and polluted as a result of the tragedy, the same material was discovered over half a century later.
The struggle for control of the material is taking place between extraterrestrial businesses and resistance groups. The player assumes the role of an independent mercenary and infiltrates Rubicon, where they find themselves embroiled in a conflict over the material with various businesses and other organizations.
The role of Initial Game Director will be filled by none other than Hidetaka Miyazaki. Following the completion of the preliminary work, Masaru Yamamura has assumed the role of Director.
