News: Armored Core V Territory Update

Posted on : 22-08-2011 | By : | In : News

Hardware: ,


A bunch of places have covered the material released at this year’s GamesCom for Armored Core V. With 4Gamer being one of the better ones. Showing off three areas; a buried city (above), a mountain base and an abandoned city. The big thing that seems to be hammered on about is all about the base defenses. Some places have rather snarkily interpreted this setup as being akin to glorified tower defense, which is entirely accurate if the tower defense genre has been broadened to include online combat with massively customisable mecha. Well done there, no really. That asinine nonsense aside, the update also talks about the involvement of two voice actors. Namely Chiaki Takahashi and Keiji Fujiwara, of which the latter was recently Ali Al-Saachez in Gundam 00 (though we’ll always remember him as Holland from Eureka Seven). What’s really clear about all this is how important the operator will be, as the status of your territory will be very much reliant on the team’s “eye in the sky”. Getting a good tactician on your team will clearly be as crucial as skilled gaming ninjas for the mecha piloting aspect, something that’s pleasantly reminiscent of Chrome Hounds.

Can’t come soon enough! I love they way this game is sounding I love both Armored Core (the whole franchise) and Chromehounds. Mixing the two sounds amazing.
I’ve said it before and I know it won’t happen but having PS3 and Xbox players able to join the same match would be awesome! Just more battles and more mechs to fight.

Hours and hours of pure awsome gameplay. Guess I’ll need a bigger cup of coffee for this…

All your base are belong to us…
