A key art for Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon has surfaced prematurely on the Microsoft Store suggesting that From Software's next big title is gearing towards a full reveal very soon.
From Software's recently revealed mech shooter Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon could get a full reveal with gameplay and other details very soon. A new key art for the game has been spotted on the Microsoft Store, the most reliable leaker of them all.
The artwork features a destroyed mech kneeling in what appears to be a huge mech junkyard with all sorts of metal parts. In the background, we can see massive structures as well as a stunning gradient pink and orange sky.
In addition to the key art leak, Microsoft Store also reveals that the game version of Armored Core 6 is currently 184.108.40.206, which some may find a bit odd for a game that has not been released just yet. This could be another suggestion that Armored Core 6 is well on track to launch this year for PC , PlayStation and Xbox .
Armored Core 6 is officially announced for 2023 but some fans of the franchise feared that the game could get delayed to 2024 since we haven't seen any gameplay or in-engine footage yet. This latest leak could offer some hope that development is going according to plan and that we'll soon get to jump into our mechs.
From Software previously said that Armored Core 6 will feature rich single-player content with a strong focus on boss battles and mech customisation features. Players will get to tune fuel load, boosters, swap weapons and much more. More details on this and other gameplay mechanics are expected this summer at one of the big game showcases.
For those of you who are expecting a Dark Souls game with mechs, Director Hidetaka Miyazaki was pretty adamant that From Software are not trying to make a souls-like.
"No, we've not been making a conscious effort to try to direct it towards more Soulsborne type gameplay," Miyazaki said.
All in all, we can't wait to see more of Armored Core 6, which is certainly high on our list of most anticipated games.
