It wouldn’t be a complete guide to Armored Core 6 without mentioning the ever-so-popular feature – multiplayer!

The multiplayer mode in Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon will be available. “Yes, we do plan to have a versus mode,” director Masaru Yamamura said in an interview, “similar to previous Armored Core titles where you’ll be able to customize your mech and take that fully customized mech into battle with others.”

Masaru Yamamura continued, “The main focus in AC6 – on the story mode at least – is having that story develop and play out. We’ve concentrated on single-player for the story mode.”

“There is a PvP mode, online PvP that has both 1v1 and 3v3 matches. The idea behind the 3v3 is more of a “mecha festival,” with metal flying everywhere, We hope you can look forward to that,” said director Masaru Yamamura in a more recent interview.

Story Overview

On the distant planet Rubicon 3, a strange new material was found. It was anticipated that using this chemical as an energy source would significantly improve humankind’s technological and communication capacities. Instead, it resulted in a catastrophe that formed a Burning Star System, engulfing the planet and stars in its vicinity in fire and storms.

The same substance has reappeared on Rubicon 3, a planet that has been infected and locked off as a result of the calamity, almost fifty years later.

Corporations from other planets and factions fight each other for the possession of Coral. You, as the player infiltrate Rubicon as a freelance mercenary and soon find yourself engaged in a conflict over Coral with corporations and other factions.
