News: Armored Core V Closed Beta

Posted on : 11-05-2011 | By : | In : News

Hardware: ,


In the latest issue of Famitsu, it’s been announced that the upcoming Armored Core V will not only be released (in Japan) sometime in October, at a price point of 7,800 yen, but also that a closed beta will occur before that. In terms of player applications to the beta, From Software will be releasing details about that shortly. In any case, this is very good news either way. Mainly on account of the fact it will massively improve the online QA process, as well as allow From Software to deal with server load issues before the game is released. Whilst we don’t think this is by any means a silver bullet it will make a huge difference to the end game.

Separately, the Famitsu also references several new boosting mechanics; glide, charge, high, jump, drive, and drift. Whether these will sit atop the traditional boosting/movement setup or replace it entirely remains to be seen. Finally, don’t forget that the live stream of the game is still happening on the 13th.

All these boosting mechanics sound as if they’re taking a cue from VOTOMS…I like it.

I just wish I could be in the Beta! I’d like to see how things have changed.

The American Facebook page has new screenshots.They assembly system hasn’t changed much.

Just noticed a scope value in a weapons stat screenshot.A part of me can’t imagine an Armored Core game slow enough for deliberate sniping.

Just a reminder if your EST in the US. It’s 8am tommorrow morning, when it starts.

It’s starting!

Need more English speaking peeps.

If a password box pops up, just type “acv” in it. worked for me.

Ow boy, watched the videos they showed and man i was wrong, i though they would slow down the game to have a more tactical way, but man was i wrong, mechas were fast and furious and they kinda like did a wall jump

i was impressed it looked very good, Loved the the scan mode, can’t wait to see the final product

Blargh I missed two hours. Damn oversleeping. Is anyone recording and reposting?

I’m looking forward to this one. I’ll have to look over the ustream stuff in full later (I only saw about 30 min before I had to leave for work), but it looks really amazing so far.
