Dynamic, Fast-Paced Mech Action
Based on the knowledge gained during joint development of their recent titles, Bandai Namco Entertainment and FromSoftware seek to deliver a new action game. By combining FromSoftware’s longstanding expertise in mech games and their signature robust gameplay, ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON will be a new action experience.

In ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON, players will assemble and pilot their own mech with 3D maneuverability to move freely through three dimensional fast-paced missions. Take on difficult challenges and overwhelm your enemies with dynamic movements that make full use of ranged and melee combat. Players can enjoy a variety of actions that can only be truly realized with mechs.

Story Overview
A mysterious new substance was discovered on the remote planet, Rubicon 3. As an energy source, this substance was expected to dramatically advance humanity’s technological and communications capabilities. Instead, this substance caused a catastrophe that engulfed the planet and the surrounding stars in flames and storms, forming a Burning Star System.

Almost half a century later, the same substance resurfaced on Rubicon 3, a planet now contaminated and sealed off by the catastrophe.

Extra-terrestrial corporations and resistance groups fight over control of the substance. The player infiltrates Rubicon as an independent mercenary and finds themself in a struggle over the substance with the corporations and other factions.

Development Team
Hidetaka Miyazaki will be involved as the Initial Game Director. Based on the initial development, Masaru Yamamura has taken over as Director.

Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon reviews and comments

Combat was frantic and fun but the world/story was too disjointed for my liking. Menu, dropped into a level, repeat. A sense of exploration and adventure is nowhere to be found. 

Date Completed: 2024-02-19
Playtime: 16h 
Enjoyment: 7/10 
Recommendation: If you like mechs and don't mind the punishment
it s build like an arcade game and very similar to ace combat. u have a lot of mission that are short or longer ( 5min to 30 min ). u have to choose your build for every mission and that force u to make concience decission on your style of play. the boss are super great and very majestic and cinematic. the music is time to time super good. The gameplay is quick, responsive and adictive. U will known very quick if u like it or not. But when u have learned it and known the dance it became really great. U dont have one stupid mecanic all is very tide and work well together. the story does his job but it s more about the ambiance than the story itself. i played on pc, no bug, no crash the game run supper well. im just disapointed they made the boss easier with the patch so i have to play an hacked version simply to not have the update. when u finish the game u can do another plauythrough where u have some change in mission and objectif regarding the first playtrought and im actually enjoying the second one and it s just a super addtition to have good suprise time to time. since u have branch in the story it s also good to see what are all the possibility. it s not for everyone but if u ilke it it will become a classic for u

Typical FromSoftware excellence.

«OST on repeat»
The mechs look awesome and you can customize your heart out. The boss fights are cool as well and you can really give yourself an edge with the proper mech build, particularly with regards to the weapons you’re bringing. This also factors into the difficulty: if you’re struggling with a fight/level, you really have to figure out what’s giving you trouble and change your gear accordingly, which is a lot of fun. 
It’s not the prettiest game, a lot of the screen will look grey the entire time and the textures for the environment are quite basic, which is fine, that’s not what the game is about, but don’t expect a visually impressive current gen game. It does run very well and feels very good to play! The story is alright, but I wasn’t too invested. You can replay levels and try to get the highest ranking, which is cool, but not something in particular that I care about. 

I had a good time! Finished it in 30 or so hours and will definitely replay it again in a couple of months!
