In Armored Core 6 Fires Of Rubicon, players will be able to freely move through massive three-dimensional environments with rapid manoeuvrability while experiencing visceral vehicular combat,” reads the press release provided by Bandai Namco.

It continues: “Signature to FromSoftware’s carefully crafted game design, the game will feature challenging and memorable battles along with a fulfilling progression system and deep gameplay, all of it now powered by assembling mechs and going to combat with massive bosses.
