Armored Core 6 Fires of Rubicon Combat Customisation Boss Fight Gameplay

Armored Core 6 Reportedly Features 6-Player Multiplayer

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon, the upcoming mech action game from Elden Ring developer From Software, is just over a month away from release and we’re slowly learning more information about the game’s features closer to the time. However, new details for the game’s multiplayer reveal that it will reportedly support up to six players, though this will likely be for PvP as the game doesn’t feature co-op.

As spotted by Reddit users, physical copies of Armored Core 6 are already out for pre-order at various Japanese retailers. A quick look at the back of the box reveals that the game’s PvP will support up to six players online. Digging a little further into the disclaimer on the side (rough translation by GamesRadar), it mentions that Armored Core 6 will actually support up to nine players online though three will be spectators.

Naturally, this opens up the possibility for friends to host small Robot Wars-styled tournaments in Armored Core 6‘s PvP with an audience. Unfortunately, that’s about all the information fans were able to gather from the back of the box art so we’ll have to wait for From Software to reveal more details about the game’s PvP in the near future.

PvP has been a staple of most of From Software’s games (with Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice being an exception), allowing players to test out their builds against others in online battles. In the case of Armored Core 6, players will be able to try out their customised mechs against opponents to see who has the better murder machine.

While deep mech customisation is one of Armored Core 6‘s highlights, From Software reiterated that it’s not an RPG or traditional soulslike similar to its previous games. Instead, the game will mostly focus on fast-paced action gameplay, honouring the franchise’s roots in the genre.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon launches on 25 August 2023 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
