Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is the next installment in a series originating from 1997, developed by FromSoftware , also known for Elden Ring, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series. Unlike their other games, AC6 features an industrial sci-fi setting, starring mecha pilots.


The game is set in the distant future, its plot revolving around a mysterious substance discovered on the planet Rubicon 3. It was thought to potentially revolutionize energy and communications, letting humanity make massive technological progress. Instead, it caused a disaster and engulfed the entire star system in flames.

Fifty years later, the substance appears on Rubicon 3 once again. The previous catastrophe was not enough to discourage humans hungry for profit, and so, corporations and resistance groups arrive to the planet, fighting for the resource.

We play as a mercenary wrapped up in the middle of the conflict for control over the globe.

Game mechanics

The game expands upon the ideas from previous installments of the series. Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon is a third-person shooter, in which we control a mecha. Our machines differ from those known from such games as MechWarrior - AC mechas are lightning fast, can slide, jump and even fly short distances. Players can prepare to each mission by customizing their mecha depending on the objective. Armored Core is famous for its deep mecha customization, and AC6 is no exception: we'll get to change our armor, weapons mounted on each arm, different kinds of legs affecting our mobility and stability.

Preparing our machine is crucial, as the stages in Armored Core 6 are large and vertical, often pitting us against many enemies at once, firing from above, from below and from the sides. The combat is extremely fast-paced and challenging, as expected from a FromSoftware game. It's worth noting, however, that Armored Core has its own identity and is no typical soulslike.


Aside from the story campaign, the game features PvP multiplayer. The battles are 1v1 or 3v3, each pilot having just one life and no way to heal - eliminations are permanent, and dead players can no longer support their teammates.
