Namco Bandai has confirmed that Armored Core V will be released on March 20, 2012 in North America and on March 23, 2012 in Europe for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Armored Core V revolutionizes the series with massive online multiplayer battles designed around huge team-based skirmishes on a grand scale, a robust offline mode, and a completely new atmosphere. Featuring mechs or “Armored Cores” that are customized for more strategic gameplay, Armored Core V focuses on tactics and effectively utilizing the geography of a level to maximize the devastating effects of attacks. Players will be able to customize their Armored Core with countless unlockable parts creating their own personal weapons of mass destruction.
The all new Operator Mode gives one player a leadership role by being able to supply his Armored Core teammates with enemy positions, movements and details. Armored Core fans pre-ordering the title from GameStop stores across North America, as well as GameStop.com, will gain exclusive access to the ‘HEAVY ASSAULT PACK’ while supplies last. The pack will include additional weapons and parts that will help give players a competitive advantage on day one in the innovative and sophisticated online multiplayer battles.
