From Software’s mecha series, Armored Core 6, is one of the titles that fans hope to see again in the current console generation. Currently, only few information points out a return for the series. Here’s what we know about Armored Core 6.

Armored Core series so far

The last Armored Core entry was Armored Core 5 which released back in 2012. It’s been half a decade since the last entry and no official announcement has been made for its continuation. Fans love the series as Armored Core’s gameplay had mecha loadout customization and skill-based team battles over large areas. Till the time Armored Core 6 is released, we should stick to something else which can be the good alternative to Armored game series.

Armored Core 6 Alternatives

  1. Dark Soul series

    • The soul series is the series of action role-playing video games created and developed by From Software. The series began with the release of Demon’s souls for the PlayStation 3 in 2009.
    • The theme and gameplay are completely different. The theme is about life and death, coming back from death by reincarnation and saving the world from demons.
  2. Bloodborne

    • Bloodborne is an action role-playing video game developed by FromSoftware and
      published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 4.
    • Bloodborne also received fair critical acclaim for its theme which is quite complicated for someone to understand.
  3. Titanfall series

    • Titanfall series of the game also revived a great critical acclaim for its robotic world theme with robots trying to kill each other.
    • The theme is fantastic and it can be a good alternative for the people who used to like Armored core for their top of the world theme.
  4. Super Robot Wars 5 and the upcoming Gundam Versus are also one of the good substitutes for this game.

Is a new Armored Core announcement incoming?

According to Hidetaka Miyazaki’s interview last June 2016, From Software is currently working on three projects. The first project is an action role-playing game similar to Dark Souls’ dark medieval fantasy setting. The second project is a reboot or a new idea from a previous From Software franchise. The last and third project is a brand new IP from the company. Potentially, the second project could be an Armored Core reboot instead of an Armored Core 6 sequel. Finally, all we can do is hope that the Armored Core 6 for PS4 would release as soon as possible. So, we can sit up once again and kill the armored robots and save the world.

What can be expected and what not about Armored Core?

Our expectation about the development of Armored Core 6 can be easily confirmed by the Studio software which has created the predecessor of the game. It owns all the details and IP of the game. In last few years, the gaming technology has improved drastically which shows a positive sign about all the expectations.

We can thus expect a better game than Armored Core 5 in terms of VFX, gaming controls, multiplayer component and other advantages for the game can be taken by the development of technologies of the system like PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. What if new gaming sensation technology of VR is used in the gaming Armored games.It will be treated for fans who are waiting for a successor from a lot of time.

Moreover, the studio should come with an update ASAP and the development the Armored core 6 can be a game changer for the studio.

What the symbol ‘V’ specifies?

Currently, nobody knows what this “V” means and whether it’s for an upcoming console game. Only two images depicting a white V on a red background and a glossy red V on a white background has been trademarked.

Potentially, the V might be an Armored Core 5 or Armored Core Verdict Day remaster on the current-gen consoles.

Reviving old Armored Core multiplayer servers even without Armored Core 6 will be crucial in making the game popular again. However, developer Bandai Namco and even romSoftware themselves haven’t announced any statements about any Armored Core entry coming soon. We’ll have to for more announcements about this “V” trademark to know if it’s really for Armored Core.


The last game in the series was the excellent Armored Core Verdict Day on PS3 and 360 back in 2013. So the lack of new Armored Core games has been a bit odd, especially when fans were used to having a new game almost every year since the 1997 original.

Talking of the original Armored Core, this year also marks the 20th anniversary of its release and From Software has commemorated that with a free dynamic theme on PS4.

While this dynamic theme isn’t overly amazing, it is nice to know that From Software hasn’t
forgotten its mecha gaming roots at least.

As someone that has played and finished every Armored Core game to date, the news of another potential game in the series obviously makes me happy.

With any luck, we might even hear something soon about more new games in the series but in the meantime, fans of mecha games can get their fix with the extremely good Gundam Versus on PS4.
