Players work their way through a series of experiments, each of which plays out on various large maps like a police station, a courthouse, a carnival, and more. The g...

    Armored Core 6 is Out Alongside a New G Fuel Flavor

    Beat the Strider while you drink the Strider.

    The latest mech combat title from FromSoftware came out this week. It's none other than Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, and it is the first new mainline Armored Core release since 2012's Armored Core 5.

    This isn't a new Souls-like in disguise. The Armored Core games are very much their own thing, so don't think that just because you enjoy their Souls titles or Elden Ring that you will necessarily like Armored Core 6.
