Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon was one of the biggest surprise announcements at the 2022 Game Awards, and earlier this year, FromSoftware and Bandai Namco confirmed it would launch on August 25, 2023. For those of us who grew up playing Armored Core games, we likely remember them as the best form of entertainment primarily involving giant mechs blowing stuff up. And really, that’s what we’re looking forward to with Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon.

But apparently, the game has a story and it might be a pretty dark one. Fires of Rubicon, which serves as a reboot for the series, is set on the planet Rubicon. In the game, players control a mercenary named C4-621, or “Raven”, and join a war that is being fought over a resource known as Coral on Rubicon. Whatever, our simple brains just want to pilot a giant mech and blow things up.
