FromSoftware, the game developer known for the iconic Soulsborne franchise, is once again on the radar of gamers everywhere. No, it’s not a new Dark Souls game, nor is it Bloodborne 2. Instead, FromSoftware is bringing back one of its lesser-known titles, Armored Core. And with the announcement, the fans of the series erupted in excitement, relieved that their beloved mecha franchise is getting the recognition it deserves.
With Armored Core 6, FromSoftware is defying the pressure to conform to the Soulsborne genre that has brought them tremendous success and are instead making the game they’ve always wanted to make – a true mecha game that will leave a distinct mark on the industry.
Armored Core, first released in 1997 for the original PlayStation, is a series of third-person shooter games where the player takes control of a giant mech known as an “Armored Core.” In the game, players customize the Armored Core, with various weapons, armor, and parts to create a more unique robot suited to their playstyle.
Armored Core is a standout in the gaming world as it provides players with an incredible sense of scale and customization. Yet, despite the immense potential of the franchise, it has never truly reached mainstream success. And with FromSoftware’s recent success with the Soulsborne franchise, many have been calling for them to amalgamate these two franchises into one.
However, instead of yielding to the pressure, it looks as though FromSoftware continues to be defiant in staying true to their roots with Armored Core 6. The new game promises to take customization to new heights, featuring a revamped character creation system and a simplified interface that will make navigating the Armored Core much easier.
What’s more, it seems that FromSoftware has confirmed that Armored Core 6 will be a full-blown mecha game, complete with epic robot battles, multiplayer modes, and even a new ranking system. Such improvements to the gameplay can only enhance what has always been a fantastic game.
FromSoftware could’ve easily taken the easy route and slapped the Soulsborne seal on Armored Core 6. Instead, they’ve opted for a more daring approach – to make sure the Armored Core franchise stands out in the gaming world. Their devotion to authenticity and originality is a breath of fresh air, and it shows their unwavering dedication to their craft.
In conclusion, the pressure to conform can sometimes be overwhelming. Still, FromSoftware’s decision to stand up against it reinforces their commitment to creating unique, quality games and a game where the fans of Armored Core will be waiting with bated breath. Whatever the outcome, it is a victory for both FromSoftware and their fans, who are eagerly anticipating the release of Armored Core 6.
