Armored Core 6 has had preview presentations that revealed plenty of gameplay and details to satiate our hunger. For instance, the combat and movement system is fluid and fast-paced. The title also features amazing attention to detail in the environment, including an immersive level of verticality to allow players to soar the skies while engaging in fast-paced combat.

It is worth noting that the game is not open-world since the devs did not want it to resemble Elden Ring. But, it undoubtedly retains the olden series formula that made it a unique and indelible experience in the first place. The Armored Core 6 launches on August 25 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC. The pre-release install for Xbox is already available.
