Today Bandai Namco and FromSoftware announced the release date of the upcoming mecha game Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon.

The game will launch worldwide on August 25 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. 

The announcement was accompanied by a spectacular gameplay trailer and by a gallery of screenshots, that you can enjoy below.


The game was announced in December 2022 at The Game Awards, and recently we heard more details from producer Yatsutaka Ogura about a variety of topics including difficulty, mech customization, action, and online elements.

In case you're unfamiliar with the game, here's how FromSoftware describes it:

Combining FromSoftware’s longstanding expertise in mech games with their signature action gameplay, Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon brings a brand-new action experience to the series.

Dynamic, Omni-directional Battles
Players will pilot their mech in fast-paced, omni-directional battles, taking advantage of massive stages and their mech’s mobility on land and in the air to ensure victory.

Customized Parts for Individual Battle Styles
Customize Armored Core parts to suit a large variety of playstyles. Selecting different parts not only changes the mech’s attacks, but also directly affects its movement and battle style, so each mission can be approached with a unique mech strategy.

Thrilling Boss Battles
Deploy a wide variety of offensive and defensive tactics at close and long range to take down powerful enemy bosses.

The re-order bonus has also been announced, the Melander C3 G13 Special Customization “Tenderfoot” including.
