Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon

If you’re unfamiliar with the series, Armored Core trades the swords and sorcery of From Software’s other great games for a mechanized dive into sci-fi warfare. What sets this game apart from those titles is an emphasis on customization, as you’re able to fine-tune various details on your warsuit–the titular armored core–so that you can get the best results in battle. It has inherited some of its action DNA from other From Software games like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, as well as the big boss fights that have become hallmarks of the developers other games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

The first Armored Core game in many years, Fires of Rubicon was released last year and received positive reviews.

“Armored Core VI represents a new beginning for the long-running series. It still remains true to From Software’s original vision, but the whole experience has been refined to welcome an audience that cut its teeth on the studio’s most recent work,” Richard Wakeling wrote in GameSpot’s Armored Core 6 review. “Its story is a letdown and there may be some early growing pains due to its lopsided approach, but these shortcomings quickly scurry to the back of your mind once you start weaving your fully customized mech between incoming attacks while unleashing a salvo of rocket fire, sword swipes, and plasma rounds.”
