Armored Core 5 Ready To Launch

For Armored Core V, launching next week on March 20 in North America, From Software will be bringing new massive 10-player online multiplayer battles "designed around huge team-based skirmishes on a grand scale".

As usual, players will be able to customize their Armored Cores with numerous unlockable parts as well as an incredible range of weapons. The strategic gameplay will force players to use forceful tactics on the battlefield, especially the terrain and general geography of the environment.

Carlson Choi, Vice President of Marketing for Namco Bandai Games America, is confident in From Software's abilities and so are we:

We all know FromSoftware has a great track record of developing quality, highly immersive and addictive games, and ARMORED CORE V® will continue that tradition with new layers of strategy.

Those who pre-order Armored Core V through GameStop will unlock the Heavy Assault Pack while those who pre-order through Amazon will get the Recon pack. Both packs will provide additional weapons and parts that will give "a competitive advantage on day one in the innovative and sophisticated online multiplayer battles".
