Armored Core 6 is adding ranked PvP and new maps tomorrow

Exciting News: Armored Core 6 Update Bringing PvP Matchmaking and New Maps

Tomorrow, FromSoftware is surprising fans with a brand new update for Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon. This update will introduce ranked player vs player (PvP) matchmaking, allowing players to test their skills against others. In addition to PvP matchmaking, the update will also include new maps for players to battle it out on.

New PvP maps will be added to the game, although details about these maps are still under wraps. A teaser trailer released on YouTube offers a glimpse of these new locations, featuring three short snippets to pique fans’ interest.

Players can also look forward to new customization options, including additional parts for their AC and the ability to personalize their own nameplate. The specifics of these new features have not been disclosed, so players will have to wait until patch 1.05 is released to see the full extent of the update.

Armored Core 6: Fire of Rubicon, a well-received game, won the Best Action Game award at The Game Awards 2023. The game was praised for its satisfying combat and wide variety of missions. However, TechRadar Gaming staff writer Cat Bussell also highlighted some shortcomings in her review, mentioning the inclusion of soulsborne mechanics that did not quite fit the mech pilot fantasy.

For fans of Armored Core 6 and those looking for new games to play, the upcoming update is sure to bring fresh excitement and challenges. As the update rolls out, players can look forward to engaging in ranked PvP matches and exploring new maps. The ability to further customize their AC will also provide a new level of depth to the gaming experience.
