Armored Core 6: Leaks, screenshots & everything we know so far

Armored Core 6

Armored Core 6 appears to be in development following a series of leaks. Here’s everything we know.

It would seem that From Software has been working on Armored Core 6, alongside massive RPG Elden Ring. A new leak suggests that the company is returning to mecha titles, with screenshots spotted as part of a player survey.

The Armored Core series is essentially a third-person shooter that involves big mechs blasting and bashing each other into oblivion. The series has a very loyal fanbase, with Armored Core 6 being something they routinely ask for. Here’s everything we know about the game so far.

Armored Core 6 leak

The leak came from Resetera user Red Liquorice who claimed that he was sent a survey from FromSoftware which described an upcoming game that sounded a lot like Armored Core.

As well as asking questions about Elden Ring and other projects, the survey referenced a game that was a “sci-fi world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki”, “three-dimensional, dynamic action” and a “high degree of freedom in customization.”

The survey also read, “The game is a third-person shooter mecha action title that lets you move around an overwhelmingly scaled map that represents a unique sci-fi world with dynamic mech action. You will face strong enemies and fierce battles both long and short-range using guns and blades.”

Of course, this sounds exactly like Armored Core, and this survey has got fans excited. Other survey participants soon came forward revealing they had seen screenshots and footage of the game. (See below)

One said, “I was pretty amazed to be watching footage of an upcoming FromSoft game randomly this morning, quite unexpected.” Another commented that the boss fights were reminiscent of Dark Souls, which has always been the case in Armored Core, despite the series being set in a different genre.

Armored Core on next-gen could look incredible.

Platforms

Previous Armored Core games have been released on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. Therefore, we expect to see Armored Core 6 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. We’d also not rule out a PC release.

Gameplay details

Footage of previous Armored Core games can be seen on YouTube, as the series is pretty well established. However, FromSoftware’s attention has been largely fixed on the Souls series since 2009.

Armored Core 5 was released in 2012, with the spin-off; Verdict Day released in 2013. Since then, Armored Core has been on hiatus.

The franchise tasks players with outfitting their mechs with new equipment, balancing things like thermals and weight to create detailed builds.

We’ll update this guide with more Armored Core 6 information as it arrives, but in the meantime, why not check out our pages for the following upcoming releases:
