FromSoftware and Namco Bandai have announced that they have partnered to publish Armored Core V for both the PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s nice to see Armored Core making a comeback and judging from the amount of screenshots and the trailer below, its well on its way to being finished even if it won’t drop till next year.
The Armored Core series is renowned in the mech action genre for its intense one-on-one battles and customization options. Armored Core V revolutionizes the series with more content than the previous games, a completely new atmosphere, and a robust offline mode. In addition, the online mode has been newly designed to focus on huge team-based battles on a global scale. Featuring mechs or “Armored Cores” that are smaller in scale than in previous games, Armored Core V centers more on tactics and effectively utilizing the geography of a level rather than just relying on attacks.
Armored Core V will be available throughout North America and Europe in 2012.
