Featuring mechs or "Armored Cores" that are smaller in scale than in previous games, Armored Core 5 centers more on tactics and effectively utilising the geography of a level rather than just relying on the strength of attacks.
The Armored Core series is renowned in the mech action genre for its intense one-on-one battles and customisation options. Armored Core 5 is a new entry that revolutionises the series with more content than the previous games, a completely new atmosphere, and a robust offline mode. In addition, the online mode has been newly designed to focus on huge team-based battles on a global scale.
Defend and conquer territories: Online players can invade your Territory even when you're not online. Set Your Defense System strategically to fight automatically against other players and protect your dependency. When you're online, fight in PvP online team battles to defend against enemies invading your territories. Most complete multiplayer mode: The game supports cooperative mode on all missions such as "Destroying a Target" or "Investigation". Team gameplay is encouraged (5 simultaneously with up to 20 in a team). In World Mode, confront each other for world domination.
