Armored Core V

"Armored Core V is a 3D mecha-based video game for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It is the 14th installment and 5th main installment of From Software's Armored Core series. Armored Core V is a return to the more traditional style of gameplay found in the original series of games. It is not a sequel to Armored Core 4 and Armored Core: For Answer, rather it is a standalone title."

Armored Core V Plot


The game begins with the player's Armored Core (AC) pilot, a silent protagonist, who receives orders from his commander, Fran, to escape the city which is under siege by the corporation's army. A tutorial is given to show the basic controls on how to pilot the AC as the player escapes the city. The player manages to escapes the city by reaching the extraction point, and is carried away by Rosary and her cargo helicopter as they evade the conflict. However, during their escape they are interrupted by an unidentified AC who shoots down Rosary's Cargo helicopter, forcing the Player to engage in a battle with the unidentified AC. Whether the player manages to finish the mission or not, the player's AC is destroyed in battle. The scene ends with either Fran or Rosary in her cargo helicopter carrying the player's AC to somewhere safe.

(The confusing storyline shows some hints that Fran is inside Rosary's Cargo helicopter while Rosary is piloting the cargo helicopter)


The game is set in a futuristic post-apocalyptic war in which the Resistance is engaged in an all out war against the so-called "FATHER" and his Corporation. Gameplay and story are featured differently from all the other games in the Armored Core series. Each mission in the story contains voice-over narration that depicts the history involving the events in Armored Core V and how the player character and his group approaches every situation. The in-game environments of the story missions are based in war torn cities, harbors, deserted ancient facilities, and post-apocalyptic wasteland. After the player has completed the introduction of the game, the game begins with order missions, and sub missions; some of these sub missions are required to be completed in order to continue the process of the game's main story. The story is divided into 10 story-based missions depending on the player's choice on which to play first when each story mode is unlocked. As the story may confuse players, they can play order and sub missions to better understand their pilot's and comrade's personal boundaries towards hostile enemies, or friendly units. The Player's AC pilot is a silent protagonist featuring no reaction, but his ambitions can be judged. Armored Core V is not a sequel to previous Armored Core series games, but the game features a linear storyline, similar to the earlier games in the series. Players are free to play the missions in any order they like, although this will not change the story’s ending."

Armored Core V Gameplay

"Whereas previous games in the series focused on quick-reflex combat, Armored Core V relies heavily on tactical gameplay. Similar to the first games in the series, Armored Core V requires players to use level geography to their advantage. New to the series are Ultimate Weapons, which deal enormous damage; however, these weapons need to be recharged between uses, limiting the player to only one use per mission or match.

The online mode features five-on-five team-based battles, with each side battling over specific objectives across the map. One member of each team is designated as the Operator and must oversee the entire battle and issue orders to their team."
