Does Armored Core 6 have a pause button?

Can You Pause in Armored Core 6?

When it comes to FromSoftware games, the question of whether or not you can pause becomes a topic of discussion. Traditionally, their games have omitted the ability to pause due to the incorporation of online features. However, with Armored Core 6, a game that focuses on single-player action, does it follow in the footsteps of Sekiro by including a pause button?

Fortunately, Armored Core 6 does allow players to pause the action at any point during gameplay. This means that if you find yourself in the middle of an intense firefight and someone rings the doorbell, you don’t have to worry about losing progress while answering the door.

An interesting note is that the inclusion of a pause button in Armored Core 6 also enables the game to have a photo mode. This feature, while not as standard as pausing, has gained popularity in recent years. With both a pause feature and a photo mode, players now have more ways to appreciate FromSoftware’s art design.

However, it’s important to mention that Armored Core 6 still doesn’t allow pause during PvP matches. This is not surprising, as it would disrupt the experience for other players. Pausing mid-match is rare in online games, so it’s understandable that FromSoftware made this decision for Armored Core’s PvP mode.
